In large skillet combine; ground beef/venison, bacon, onions, celery, jalapeño, green pepper, and garlic.


Cook until ground beef is browned. ( I usually do this because the vegetables tend to take longer to fully cook in the crockpot)


Once ground beef is browned add 1/2 – 14 can of light beer, let cook for another 5 minutes. then transfer to crockpot


Add crushed tomatoes, beef broth, chili beans, brown sugar, cumin, and cayenne pepper.


Let cook for 3- 4 hours on high or 5 – 6 hours on low
