About 25 entries competed in the annual Chili Cook-Off in Alton Saturday, and The Big Z won the best of the Business award.  The Chili Cook-Off was moved to Elijah P’s Burgers and Brews this year, and the new venue attracted what organizers say was their best crowd yet.

The Alton Main Street organization promotes the event.  Main Street Board President Stacey Loveland tells The Big Z it was a great event.
