It is now reopened on a Smoke on the At 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, June 19, cooks will light their stoves and kick off the sixth annual Smoke on the Water Chili Cook-Off. Founded by Chris Canfield, Archie Chestnut and Mel Fletcher in 1999, Smoke on the Water has become a popular community event during its short time in existence. It takes place on Kanawha Boulevard at Ha&lad Riverfront Park in downtown Charles- ton. Up to 70 cooks from as far away as Michigan and Georgia are expected to show off their chili skills. Cooks compete in several categories, includ- ing red chili, green chili and salsa. These competitions are evaluated by a panl of about 60 judges recruited by event organizers. The winner of the red chili contest gets a $2,500 prize and a handmade cutting board decorated with a chili pepper carving. Winners of the green and salsa categories receive smaller cash prizes and cutting boards. Be- cause Smoke on the Water has been designated as a regional cook-off by the International" Chili Society, all three winners automatically advance to the World's Championship Chili Cookoff in Nevada this fall. Other Smoke on the Water high- lights inlcude the People's Choice competition, which is voted on by the public; live music by the bands Silver Bridge and Guinness Clarke's Wine; a special cook-off division just for area fu-efighters; a children's activity area; a silent auction of donated items; and the always-fun-to-watch hot chili pepper-eating contest. New this year is a 5-mile race, "Run for Your Life," which starts 8:30 a.m. and travels through downtown Charleston to the historic Spring Hill Cemetery, then back to the cook-off site. All of the proceeds from the silent auction and the sale of chili sampling tickets (50 cents each or three for $1) go to HospiceCare Inc.
