It takes a lot of work and planning to cook one-ton of chili.
That's what's happening in Minto, to try break the Guinness Book of
World Records for the largest pot of chili.
Organizer Chris Misialek(MISH-awl-ekk) says he's getting a lot of
interest from people who are coming to work on it and eat it. Misialek says
some people are coming from North Carolina, Maryland, Alaska, Wisconsin,
Texas, Washington, North Dakota, and Minnesota. They're all relatives or
friends interested in helping out to set a new world's record.
Misialek says about 170-workers will be doing something that day,
Saturday, June 15th. Misialek tells KXPO some workers will start browning
the hamburger at four-am, another group comes in at five-30 to add tomatoes,
another group comes later to add the beans. There are a lot of areas to cover.
Misialek says they're "pretty close" to finalizing the recipe and
finishing the vessel to cook the chili in.
178-gallons of chili's the official record.
Misialek's optimistic they'll beat it.
He's also inviting everyone to come sample it, Saturday, June 15th,
