DES MOINES, IA – The 2017 Iowa’s Best Burger will be featured during the upcoming Iowa State Fair at the Cattlemen’s Beef Quarters on Friday, August 11. This year, Iowa’s Best Burger comes from The Smokin’ Hereford BBQ in Storm Lake, Iowa.  

The Smokin’ Hereford BBQ will feature their signature burger, the Hereford Burger. This award-winning burger includes an 8-ounce hand-pattied Hereford beef burger. The burger is cooked over a flame grill and is topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, and a pickle on the side, and a served on a toasted bun.

The Hereford burger will be sold for $10 at the Cattlemen’s Beef Quarters and will be available to fair-goers for one day only starting at 10 a.m. on August 11, while supplies last.

“We are very excited to have Iowa’s Best Burger join us for one day during this year’s state fair,” says John Mortimer, manager of the Cattlemen’s Beef Quarters. “The Hereford burger is a very delicious burger and I think our customers will enjoy it. It is a great opportunity to allow Iowans from all across the state to try the burger if they are unable to travel to Storm Lake.”
