They also will see the wild antics of Bobby Cox, The Hot Rod Clown. “This is a brand new show from our premier series, nothing like anything that’s even been seen before,” said Bryan Wagner, president of All Star Motorsport Productions. “These are some of the best drivers in the world, including drivers that have competed at and won on national television and in stadiums all across the United States and Canada.” Fans can come early and meet the drivers up close and personal in the Pre Show Meet & Greet Session, get all of the latest gear and get it signed by their favorite All Star driver. Grandstand gates open at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 4 with the Meet & Greet session from 5:30 to 6:30 and showtime at 7 p.m. On Monday, Sept. 4 grandstand gates open at 12:30 p.m., with the Meet & Greet from 12:30 to 1:30 and the dirt flies at 2 p.m. This event is rain or shine and each show lasts approximately 90 minutes.

5 steps to becoming a true pitmaster In advance of this Saturday’s Mad Dog & Merrill Grill Off at the Calumet County Fair, perhaps some local grillmasters—or grillmasters in the making—could use the following inspiration. If you are one of those people who sees every summer day as an opportunity for grilling, or if you have your smoker going at the same time your neighbors are running their snow blower, you are probably ready to take it to the next level. How do you go from being an enthusiast to grilling and smoking meat like the best pitmasters? Here are five important steps to consider: 1. Use only the best quality ingredients. The best pitmasters and chefs will tell you that no matter your level of experience, if you do not have great ingredients you cannot make a great meal. It is that simple. This is as true in fine French cooking as it is in barbecue. Pitmaster Ernest Servantes—the winner of Food Network’s “Chopped: Grill Masters”— insists on using high-quality, flavorful fresh pork products from Smithfield® to get that pork that is tender and juicy every time. 2. Find the right chips. When smoking fresh meat, the combination of charcoal and wood chips can take your flavor to the next level. Pecan, red oak, hickory, apple or mesquite woods all have their unique attributes and flavors. One isn’t better than the other. It’s more a matter of your personal style. Take the time to experiment and learn what kind of wood works best for your signature meats and taste preferences. 3. Keep the rub simple. Once you have an amazing rack of ribs or perfectly

marbled pork shoulder or butt, the question is how to season them. People often get carried away, adding too many spices that ultimately overpower the taste of the meat. If you are cooking with a highquality cut of meat, a simple rub will often yield the best results. For instance, the following recipe for Cactus Jack Texas Spare Ribs uses a rub made up of salt, pepper, chili powder, granulated garlic and onions—just enough to bring out the true flavor of the ribs without being overpowering. “Cactus Jack” Texas Spareribs Recipe by Chef Ernest Servantes for Smithfield Cactus Jack Rub ingredients: 2 racks Smithfield® Pork Spareribs 1/4 cup kosher salt 1/4 cup cracked black pepper 1 tablespoon granulated garlic 1 tablespoon granulated onion 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon seasoned salt For ribs: oak or pecan wood for smoking 1 cup apple juice, in a spray bottle For Rattle Snake BBQ Sauce: 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1/2 cup diced yellow onion 2 tablespoons minced fresh jalapeño 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic 1/4 cup ketchup 1/4 cup Kingsford® Original Smoked Hickory BBQ Sauce 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 1/4 cup pepper-style soda 2 tablespoons molasses 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard Kosher salt and cracked black pepper

For “Cactus Jack” Rub, combine salt, pepper, garlic, onion, chili powder and seasoned salt in small bowl; mix well. Season ribs on all sides; cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least two hours. Heat smoker or grill for indirect cooking at 250 F; add wood for smoking. Place ribs, meaty side up, and smoke for 2-1/2 hours, spraying with apple juice every 30 minutes. Meanwhile, for Rattle Snake BBQ Sauce, heat oil in heavy saucepan over high. Sauté onion, jalapeño and garlic until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients except salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced in volume by 1/3. Remove from heat, season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove ribs from smoker; wrap each rack in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Return to smoker, meaty side down, for an additional two hours until internal temperature reaches 190 F to 200 F.Remove ribs from foil, place back on smoker and brush with Rattle Snake BBQ Sauce; cook for about 20 minutes. Serve with additional BBQ sauce on the side. Makes

two to four servings. Prep time: 15 minutes plus 24 hours stand time Cook time: five hours 15 minutes 4. Explore the world. There are many regional barbecue styles in the U.S.— Kansas City, Texas, Memphis, and the list goes on. At a time when people are more adventurous in their culinary tastes than ever, try branching out from your normal go-to style and infuse some international flavors into your grilling. For instance, one recipe for Honey Soy Grilled Pork Chops Korean BBQ Sauce combines a medley of Asian flavors, teriyaki marinade, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar with an unmistakable barbecue kick.

A Futurity is a unique non-traditional dairy cattle show where exhibitors enter animals as calves and then show them as three-year old cows. Exhibitors wear formal attire as they display their animals in front of a dairy cattle judge. Exhibitors receive cash awards for the top placed animals and prizes are given out for best dressed exhibitor, first junior owned cow, top bred and owned cow, along with the highest milk production awards. The Calumet County CP Feeds Fu-

turity is an opportunity for local dairy farmers to showcase their outstanding dairy cattle and inform the public of the care of their animals and the dairy products they produce. Calumet County Fair attendees are encouraged to attend the Calumet County CP Feeds Futurity and bring your mobile phone. Futurity attendees will be encouraged to use their mobile phones to vote via text message for the best dressed exhibitor. The 70th Alice in Dairyland Crystal Siemers-Peterman will be present at the Futurity to join in the pageantry and festivities that come with the dairy show. The Futurity is sponsored by the Calumet County Holstein Breeders.

Back to try to reclaim their 2014 win were Garret Carnahan, Ridge Liebzeit and Scott Woepse as team Nun-Ya Business, but their pig gave them the business as they charted 31 seconds and took on a little mud.

Fair held in same location since 1888 The motto “The Biggest Little Fair in Wisconsin” got its start back in 1856 with the first steps in the formation of an Agricultural Society, with the first fair being held in Stockbridge, then moving to other cities and villages over the next several years, including Stockbridge, Brothertown, New Holstein and Lodi (now named Gravesville). In 1888 Harrison Hobart deeded the land known as Hobart Park to the City of Chilton with the stipulation that the property was to be used for a city park, public pleasure grounds, public fairgrounds and public race course. It was not until after 1888 that the fair had a permanent location. In 1891 the association purchased 8.5 acres from General Hobart adjacent to Hobart Park, in 1898 another parcel of 4.5 acres was purchased from Theador Kersten; in 1926 land was purchased from a German shooting club; this gave the fair all the land from the Manitowoc River to Frances Street; in 1955 another 100 feet was added on the south end which was purchased from Joseph Sell. In 1993 the association added another 40 acres from John Bittner, bringing the total land owned by the association to 56 acres. On June 15, 1878 a constitution was adopted and registered with the state under the name of Calumet County Trotting Park and Fair Association and with this charter the association was eligible for their first state aid of $100.00. In March, 1891, the official name was changed to the Calumet County Agricultural Association. As the laws have changed, it became necessary to recodify the Articles and By-Laws, the

last time in 1998. It’s purpose today is the same as in 1891: The education of agriculture, mechanical, and household arts. To further enhance the needed educational programs for the benefit of the people of Calumet County. To conduct such exhibitions, fairs, and events consistent with the educational interests and needs of people in Calumet County and the members of this Association.

Race track built in 1891 Highlighting some of the milestones from history shows that in 1863 was the first horsemanship and trotting classes were listed for premiums; in 1883 there were a total of 428 entries; in 1891 the one-mile race track was built for $1,100.00 with the single largest item being engineering for a total of $691.00. It was completed for the fair dates of September 29, 30, and October 1, 2, with 40 horses entered for the races; in 1901 the Milwaukee Daily Journal brought 200 homing pigeons to the grounds and released them from time to time with messages on fair activities; in 1904 fire destroyed all the fair records; in 1905 for the first time, the County Board appropriated money to assist the fair in the amount of $400.00. Around the year 1909 people could ride a stern-wheeler from the State Street Bridge to the fairgrounds. In 1911 the first grandstand entertainment other than racing was held at a price of $200.00; in 1914 the first auto and cycle races were held; there was a contract with Calumet Service Company to run electrical wiring to the fairgrounds at a cost of $100.00; in 1917 the first Exten-

sion Agent was Royal Klofanda; in 1919 the first Club Agent was E. W. Shellings; in 1924 A. T. Hipke was elected president and the County Board appropriated $2,000.00 for running the fair; in 1924 membership was taken in the Wisconsin Association of Fairs; in 1928 the County Board gave $5,798.00 toward a new grandstand; in 1935 airplane rides were offered as an attraction; in 1936 the first Calumet County ribbons were printed with the county seal; in 1936 the City of Chilton showed interest in developing Hobart Park; in 1937 a quarter-mile race track was constructed with WPA labor for stock car races which were held in the 1940’s and 1950’s; 1943 saw Orrin Meyer become County Agent; 1944 the fairgrounds became a war labor camp with prisoners being used by farmers and canneries due to the labor shortage from the war; in 1955 the polio epidemic canceled the fair; 1966 gate admissions were 75 cents daily and a $2.00 season pass; 1973 saw the first Fairest of the Fair contest being held; in 1974 the first female board member was elected, in 1988 stock car races returned to the fairgrounds. Three State fairests from Calumet Calumet County Fair has been honored to have three state Fairest of the Fairs and one Alice in Dairyland. The oldest building on the grounds is the Exposition Building built in 1891. In 1919 the present horse barn was built. The Merchants Building was built in 1922. The present Grandstand was built in 1928. After World War II, interest in exhibits rose dramatically and several

tents had to be erected every year for the fair, then in 1958 the Arena was built which housed the cattle. In 1964 the Moehrke Building was built, and in 1969 the Seybold Building was erected, both are cattle barns. With the collapse of the old hog and sheep barn, a new building, the Harder-Goeldi Building was constructed in 1981, which now houses an indoor show arena and swine and sheep. In 1977 the Stanelle Building was erected due to the increase in merchants exhibiting at the fair. With the increase in 4-H exhibits, in 1987 the Brantmeier Building was built. The most recent addition is the Farm Progress Pavilion, built in 1997, which replaces the old beer tent and which can be utilized by Calumet County residents and groups for their outdoor summer festivals and events. 1999 will see the construction of a new horse barn for the area by the horse arena on the south end of the grounds. The Calumet County Fair is owned and operated exclusively by the association, a privately held organization chartered under Sec. 501(3)(c) of the Internal Revenue Code as a tax exempt organization. The organization is comprised of approximately 350 stockholders, a stockholder elected board of 21 directors, and an executive board of directors.

Honey Soy Grilled Pork Chops: 6 to 8 (4-oz.) Smithfield® Boneless Center Cut Pork Chops 1 cup KC Masterpiece® Honey Teriyaki Marinade 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 to 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon white or rice wine vinegar Korean BBQ Sauce: 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 cup water 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce 4 teaspoons brown sugar


continued from page 6 2 teaspoons minced ginger 2 teaspoons KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper and place in a large resealable food storage bag. Whisk together honey teriyaki marinade, oil, soy sauce and vinegar; mix well. Pour over pork chops; seal the bag and let stand 1 hour.For Korean BBQ Sauce, heat oil in small saucepan on medium; fry garlic until it begins to turn color. Stir in water, soy sauce, sriracha sauce, brown sugar, ginger and BBQ sauce. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes or until it becomes thick. Heat charcoal

or gas grill to medium. Remove pork chops from marinade (discard marinade) grill for three minutes or until the pork chop easily releases from the grill. Flip chops and continue to cook for three more minutes until internal temperature reaches 145 F to 160 F. Baste each pork chop with Korean BBQ Sauce, grill one minute on each side. Let chops stand for three minutes before serving. Makes six to eight servings. Prep time: 10 minutes plus one hour marinade time Cook time: 18 minutes 5. It’s all about practice. Like a perfect golf swing, grilling or smoking the per-

fect rack of ribs or pork butt takes time and practice. Invite your friends or family over to practice your grilling or smoking of the best barbecue you ever had and remember that behind each one of those to-die-for bites were practice sessions to perfect your craft. So keep at it! Now that you’re feeling inspired, why wait? Call up your friends, get out the grill or smoker, and be sure to have plenty of quality Smithfield Fresh Pork on hand. Because once those ribs and chops come off the grill, people are going to want more.
