2014 Chili Appreciation Society International Texas International Chili Champion.
Jason Goains of Ogelsby, is the 2014 TICC champ and his wife Karen won the Texas Open cook-off. He got hooked because everyone he met at a ladies’ cook-off was so friendly.
“It’s popular and it’s a fun hobby and you get to travel all over and meet hundreds of new friends,” Jason says. “Everything about a cook-off is good. It’s a great feeling when they call your number and you’re world champion. And every chili cook is friendly, whether it’s CASI, ICS or Tolbert.”
