The Great Miller Lite Chili Cook-off began in 1979 as a fun and interactive way to showcase the South's best amateur, chili-loving chefs while bringing people of all ages together for a great time and great cause. The inaugural event drew nearly 1,000 folks from as far as Tennessee and as near as Atlanta and a grand total of 15 teams. In 2012, the event drew more than 250 teams from the across the country and had over 10,000 in attendance. With 100% of the proceeds benefiting Camp Twin Lakes, in the past seven years alone, we have raised approximately $500,000 for this incredible network of children’s camps that provide life-changing experiences to thousands of Georgia children with serious illnesses, disabilities and challenges.
Bigger and better than ever before, our 34th annual Great Miller Lite Chili and BBQ Cook-Off will make its way to a new venue this year, the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers on Saturday, October 5, 2013. In conjunction with a new name and the move to a larger home, amateur pit masters now have the opportunity to compete for the best barbecue chicken, ribs and pork! Of course, we will still have plenty of mouthwatering chili, live music from nationally touring tribute bands, and games and activities for all ages.
