    A couple of comments, not gospel, as I don't think there is a Chili bible.

    As I understand it Cincinatti Chili includes a dollop of spaghetti in the bottom of the bowl. Red beans are normally a compliment not a basic part of the brew.

    Louisville Chili has the beans in the brew and the spaghetti is added to the mix late in the cooking process.

    I'm also from Louisville, KY, but I didn't even know that Louisville chili was a distinct chili subgenre! My mom would always cook the spaghetti in the chili, and we'd eat it with lots of cheddar cheese.

    Sounds great Dugger, I love Cincinatti chili. (I would have to have cheese on top of this though.)
