Glad to hear a favorable discussion about chili with frijoles but I think the use of charcoal for grilling meat or baking pizza is more rewarding. I can make good chili on a stove but can't say the same about grilled meats or pizza.

Didn't someone recently post an article discussing the authenticity of beans in chili?

Either I missed that article or the article was consistent with what appears to me to be the generally negative tone on this forum regarding the use of beans in 'real' chili.

Every-time I make chili it starts with, "Soak one pound of beans..."

Well, to be honest, I can't remember the last time I made chili with beans
I'm in a "chili has beans" area, and I like beans in chili, I just don't add them anymore. Probably because I don't set out to make chili and then buy the ingredients. Chili is always a by product of smoked pork or brisket, so I use what I have on hand... and I don't got no beans in the pantry

I have progressed beyond the need for outside stimuli

On the contrary. The article was arguing that beans in chili were authentic. The argument sounded valid to me. It stated cooks on the trail would use beans as a filler to stretch meat meals. Dried beans would have traveled well and provided needed nutrients.

I'm a big fan of beans. They were a mainstay in my paternal grandfather's diet and he lived to be 96.
