EMS/Firehouse Chili Cook Off
Voted best chili, Milwaukee Fire Department, Engine #28, Al Jansen, Eddie Schott and Jeff Pistiner
On Nov. 10, 2012, Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin and Froedtert Health sponsored a chili cook-off between area firefighter and EMS teams as a part of Wine & Dine Wisconsin. Five teams from Milwaukee and West Allis entered and competed for the title of “Best Chili 2012.” Nearly 600 Wine & Dine attendees tasted the different teams’ recipes and cast their vote for the best chili. Three area celebrity chefs also sampled each team’s chili and cast their vote based on specific tasting criteria.
- First Place: Milwaukee Fire Department, Engine #28
- Second Place: Milwaukee Fire Department, Engine #2
- Third Place: West Allis Fire Department, Station #3
Thank you to each of the participating teams and the volunteers that made this great event a success.
Two of the firehouses also shared their recipes: Lot to Love Chili (winning chili) and Jerry's Firehouse Chili (second place).
