Chili in Texas

ChiliJoe | May 17, 2011 07:55 PM

I'm a recent convert to the chili world who is perfecting my personal recipe. I will be traveling in Texas this coming June and am interested in getting some authentic Texas chili to calibrate my palate. I have seen very little about chili in Texas beyond one poster's comments that true Texas chiliheads make their own chili (which I wholeheartedly agree with). I will be spending some time in the DFW area as well as a quick jaunt to San Antonio and a few other spots. Are there any suitable chili joints I can stop at to get a sample? I had a vision of making some grand pilgrimage to SA, the birthplace of chili (according to many historians).

So what's the real story?
