WOW!!! My husband said this is the best chili he ever had! The only changes I made to this recipe was to use chipotle pepper instead of the cayenne and to omit the water. I tasted it before adding the bourbon and it was just OK, the bourbon just adds complexity to the chili; don't leave it out. Thanks for the great recipe!

One the the best chili recipes I've made...Used 3 lbs. of vension trimmed from 2 legs. Didn't have any jalapeno peppers so I used red pepper flakes. Had only my own canned tomatoes so used 1 qt. w/ juice. After 1 can of beer and the JD, I skipped the water as it seemed very liquidy. Also, since I cooked everything in a dutch oven, I put it in the oven at 425 for 1 1/2 hrs. This cooked the liquid down nicely.There was a special "twang" that stood out. Maybe the JD? Whatever it was, it made this recipe special. Will make this again!

Oh yeah - this was a winner. I loved the spicy and smooth flavor of the sauce. In fact mine was more saucy due to my not putting all the meat that it called for. I used venison sausage which was the ground meat with seasoning. Made it with a different type of pepper than the jalepeno and learned a big no-no. Cutting a pepper with bare hands is bad. Because even hours later, many hand washes & soaking my fingers in buttermilk didn't get rid of the sting. Then taking out your contacts later is even more painful. [I can laugh now, but it hurt at the time.]

I had some ground venison in the freezer that I needed to use up, and my man asked me to have some recipes ready in case he brought home a deer (it's deer season), so I tried this out. I am not a fan of venison, but this was good-- really good. I left out the water because mine seemed a little soupy, and I let it cook longer to reduce it down. The result was thick and rich with a strong beer flavor. I served this with cornbread muffins, and froze the leftovers. Yum!

I made this for our Super Bowl party and everyone loved it! Most people had at least 2 bowls full.

I loved this chili. I had to "borrow" the bourbon and beer, but it definitely added a zing. I did sub some turkey sausage for the pork.

This was fantastic! The only thing I did different was to omit the water. The only liquids used were the beer and bourbon
