Huisenga tells us getting a taste is first-come-first-served, but there might be a way you can sneak a taste another way too.

Huisenga says they’ll be barbequing pork, beef, and chicken, and each cook can decide if they’re doing one, two, or all three of the meats. He says pellet grills, charcoal grills, and smokers are all allowed, but they do not allow gas grills.

For more information, call Huisenga at 712-461-1465 or Tom Dagel at 712-461-0482; or you can stop by the fair office in Sibley. People with all levels of barbeque experience are invited to come and join in on the fun Saturday at the Osceola County Fair’s barbeque contest.
