Annual Chili Cook-off

Annual Chili Cook-off

The Yaeger team gathered this week with our neighbors at RTM Engineering Consultants for our annual chili cook-off.  There were six chilis/soups in the competition and three representatives from each firm judged the entries based on originality, taste, texture, and aroma.  The judges awarded the 2018 trophy to our very own Luke McElwain for his original chili recipe “Smoke and Hope” which included ground beef, bacon, and smoked meatballs.  Congrats, Luke!

Since the competition was held on Halloween, we were fortunate to have Ariana Grande, a portrait, Tommy Pickles, a construction worker, and even a pirate join in on the festivities!
