Hill City is getting smoky, but not from a fire

Hill City's annual Wine, Brew, and BBQ event is happening on Friday

Oneheart Bbq 6RAPID CITY, S.D. – If you are going to be around Hill City on Friday and Saturday, prepare to have your noses filled with the smell of BBQ. That smell is coming from the 10th annual Wine, Brew, and BBQ event.

The event is mainly focused around supporting local breweries and musicians that will be performing. However, most people have their eyes, and noses, on the BBQ.

There will be 28 teams, including several world champions, competing for $14,000 in prizes. Each team will be turning in four items: a brisket, chicken, pork butt and ribs.

There is also a “Kids-Q” on Friday, where kids, whose ages range from 6 to 16, will be cooking two pounds of hamburger each for the judges.

Don’t worry, you won’t have to just smell and look at the BBQ, you can eat it too! For $20, you can get a wristband that is good for all-you-can-eat BBQ.

Also, from 1:45-3 p.m. on Saturday, you can sample and vote on the meats that were cooked for the judges for $2.

If you want to get a taste of some world champion BBQ, head to Hill City on Elm Street and Main on Friday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

If you don’t make it out this time, you can always try next year.
