Firefighters prepare for annual Chili Cook-off


“Which is perfect for chili and drinking beer,” McGregor said.

So far there are 10 teams signed up to compete, including eight emergency responder teams and two local businesses. One thing that sets Amesbury’s chili cook-off apart from others is that all the food is prepared on scene starting at 8 a.m. So by the time crowds start arriving at noon, the food is ready to go. Typically, the chili goes very quickly, sometimes leaving teams empty by the time the people’s choice portion of the contest begins.

“It’s definitely different than your typical chili contest,” McGregor said.

For more information on Saturday’s chili cook-off, contact McGregor, president of Amesbury Firefighters Local 1783, at 978-388-1333.
