BISMARCK, N.D. - Things were really heating up Saturday night at the annual Brother's Keeper Motorcycle Club Chili cook off.

The cook off is hoping to raise around two thousand dollars like they have in the past. The club rotates which charities they work with each year. This is the sixth year for the chili cook off, and the money they are raising will be donated to the Bismarck Zoo.

"I don't know for sure. I know their trying to raise money for different animal exhibit, I know they're talking about a penguin exhibit," said Mike Maples, BKMC President.

Maples says they had anywhere between 300 and 400 people come to the cook off and sample the close to 40 different chili's entered in the cook off.
