Default Speaking of Chili, anybody got a Chili con Carne recipe featuring smoked brisket?

I would say pretty much any chili made with smoked brisket will be
better than the original. I sort of do the same thing Pete mentions -
just sort of wing it and do it by feel. I like to add specific chile
powders to taste rather than the blended chili powder, plus onions,
green chiles (hatch if possible), garlic and a few other things. A
couple of bottles of Shiner Bock give it a nice touch as well.

The one thing I would say above all else - NO BEANS.
