Heck’s BBQ has a long history, in Southeast South Dakota, with traditions going back over 70 years.
The sauce recipe was created by Heck Harnois back in the 1930s and still remains a well-kept secret. We honor Heck and the traditions established by the Norway rib eaters by cooking our ribs and other BBQ items over corncobs.
This is something that is unique to South Dakota. To our knowledge, Heck’s is the only licensed BBQ vendor in the US that uses cobs as a preferred fuel source.
Heck’s has a full catering menu for those interested in hosting events in SE South Dakota. Check us out at Hecksbbq.com.
