January: Smoky Slow Cooker Chili
For the new Test Kitchens Secrets column, our resident pork and smoke expert Mike Wilson created this chili that offers huge
flavor. A smoked ham hock, cooked with the chili and then discarded, adds just the right amount of smokiness with minimal
effort. The best part is, though it cooks for five to eight hours, you can just set up the slow cooker in the morning and
come home to a steaming bowl of fresh, homemade chili with no effort after work.
