I’m making a Chili recipe I haven’t done in some time but I remember as very good. It is from the Weber Grill website and it is Chili on the Grill. I didn’t realize until just now that my supplies were lower than normal, and this being Sunday in Indiana I can’t restock. The recipe calls for one bottle of “Ale” to be added. The closest I have right now is Bud Light or Redd’s Apple Ale. Neither one is ideal, but I’m trying to figure out which would be the best substitute. In a way I kind of think the Apple Ale could be interesting as it may give it a “Hmmm… I can’t quite put my finger on that taste” kind of thing.
What would you do? The Chili is pretty flavorful overall so it probably won’t make or break it, but just wondering what people think would work best.
