Chef Daniel Smith of Jake Moon Restaurant and Café in Clarksville, right, said he tasted stout beer and commended Price's use of meats. Smith later said many contestants of chili competitions veer from the essence of a chili — referring to red peppers in Spanish — by cooking a bean stew. "They're making food, and that's the important thing," said Smith of the seven contestants.
