27 degrees here in Salt Lake this evening, with a wind chill of 18. I made some Dutch oven Scatman chili to warm the cockles of my heart. :)

Looks great. Is that ground turkey?

Great minds think alike! Chili for dinner here too. Got 6 inches of snow and it just hit 0 and will continue to drop a bit more. Glad winter is finally coming to parts of the west!

Yes, it is ground turkey. I've made it with ground beef before too, but went with the leaner choice this time. Below zero is a great time for chili. That just means you'll need an extra dash of red pepper flakes in your chili. :) Stay safe and keep warm.

Smoked ribs sound mighty good. You might need to bring a batch to the Beartooths in August to share. :D

I think I might take the 68 degrees in the morning right about now. :)

Grizzly Lake is about 800 feet higher than Gneiss Creek so it should be slightly cooler there. :thumbsup: And besides, the breeze that you'll be creating running from the grizz will cool you off some too, or at least those around you. :p

Scatman, have you ever put a bit of canned chipotle or hot smoked paprika into your chili along with the sautéing veggies? Extra yummy if you like things on the spicy side! We like about a TBSP in the quantity you show there, but I'd start with less to get a feel for it.

-35 sounds bitter cold to me! The lowest I've ever experienced is -13.

Your turkey soup sounds wonderful.

Your chipotle idea sounds like a winner. I'm going to try that the next time I make a pot of chili. I've got some smoked paprika on hand, is hot smoked different than regular smoked?

Minus 35 here today- a good morning to put the Christmas turkey carcass into the stock pot, with soup on the menu for tonight. I don't think Piper approves of that plan, though! And yes- the hardwood floor badly needs re-finishing. It's on the to-do list for 2022.

I thought our -20F last night was bad. I always forget that our northern neighbors usually have whatever we're having but colder. Excellent idea on the soup!
