Wonderful recipe! I did make a little change though. I used sea salt and ended up doubling the salt, but start with the salt called for then adjust to taste, after an hour of cooking. I also put a bay leaf per 2 pounds of ground beef. I didn't use the beer, but used water in it's place and it was great that way. I also used extra lean ground beef - 93% lean, and I used about a 1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to brown my ground beef, onions and garlic. When you use Olive Oil and extra lean beef you have very little grease to skim when you save the left-overs in the frig! I used Lousiana Hot Sauce for my hot sauce, and it gave it a very nice warm after taste while not blisting you. Of course you can load it up with various hot sauces to turn the heat up, if you like to suffer when you eat chili! Overall, one of, if not the best chili I have eaten, PERIOD!
