Thanks for helping put some zing back in the bedroom!!!”

  1. Sorry, not the real Chili John’s recipe. They make the meat sauce on Western Avenue in Green Bay, in a basement that has a commercial range. they also close the blinds and lock the doors when cooking, and you can smell the delicious aroma all over the neighborhood.

    • I feel so deflated now, August… this recipe has been knocked down to unofficial status as a result. I can smell that intoxicating aroma just reading your reply… thanks for your input, and best — Mike
