Suretank USA win Chili Cook-Off

Suretank USA win Chili Cook-Off

The team at Suretank USA recently took part in the annual Houma Downtown Chili cook-off, competing with distinction in the family/community event where local businesses enter two different categories to produce the best chili. Our team were the only group to enter both categories with the same chili, traditional and non-traditional, and were competing with up to 30 other local businesses.

After a 7am start to get prepared for the day’s competition, the chili was ready at noon to be sampled by the hundreds of visitors, who enjoyed the occasion against the backdrop of a live band playing in front of the local courthouse. Our huge pot of chili, which had 30lbs of meat in it, sold out within two hours. A sure testament to the cooking prowess of our enthusiastic team, and many voting tickets were kindly dropped into our buckets.
Results were announced mid-afternoon, with our team claiming the first prize for the non-traditional category, first prize for the best decorated stall and second prize in the traditional competition, demonstrating the same dedication to excellence and results that has become the norm within Suretank! The team were interviewed for local TV, who were more than interested to hear about Suretank and the company’s Irish origins. The event, organised to fund the ‘Beautification Downtown’ project, was an absolute success and allowed the Suretank USA team to help support the local community whilst having some memorable fun!
