Guinness Book of World Records for cooking the biggest pot of chili.
Organizer Chris Misialek(mih-SHAW-lehk) says the cooking vessel's
92-percent done and the vessel's quite a site. Misialek says it's a round,
stainless steel cylinder. They had to put a three-foot extension on it and
insulate it to hold approximately 250-gallons of chili.
Misialek says the vessel will be outside, in full view, cooking the
250-gallons of chili on Saturday, June 15th. He says the cooking vessel
will be outside, right next to the Minto Community Center, on Main Street,
cooking chili that day.
Misialek says the word is getting out about.
He says people from 13 states have indicated they'll come.
They're relatives or lived in the Minto area before and have decided to come
Misialek is optimistic they'll end up having about four-thousand-people
or so to eat all that chili, if the weather cooperates.
Proceeds from this will benefit the Minto Community Center, Walsh County
Museum, and the Sunshine House in Grand Forks.
Minto's trying to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the biggest pot
of chili ever cooked.
