The 2012 Cambria Chili Cookoff and Car show was held on Saturday at the Vet's Hall and Pinedorado show grounds. The sun poked out for most of the day to shine on the dozen or so groups cooking chili.
This year's big winner of both the People's Choice and Judge's Choice categories was Cambria's own West End Bar and Grill. Their chili was quite good. Noted chili pundit Frank X. Tolbert would have been horrified that most of the chili served had beans, and there wasn't a true bowl of "Texas Red" to be found.
The audience held their breath as the 5Hundy Social Club from Sacramento held a jenga match next to the cook tent. They also had my vote for the best chili.
