Last but not least, MB’s Shear Expressions will attempt to take your votes with their “Expressions” chili.
The tasting will be open to the public beginning at noon. Wing contestants are required to bring 300 wings, and will be selling them to tasters one wing per taste at 50 cents each. Chili contestants are required to have five-gallons of their chili and will sell three-ounce tastes for $1 per taste.
