Mesmerized by his own concoction

(ran West edition)

Despite appearances, Austin Reale is a willing participant in the cooking and tasting of a unique chili. The boy, taking a cue from his father, firefighter Nick, will offer Lava Lamp Chili at the Chili Blaze on Friday in Pinellas Park. Austin, 10, is a newcomer to the fierce competition, waged by professionals, firefighters and others. For $7, you can sample all the stews.
