Grill fans prepare to get into the groove on the annual Windy City Smokeout celebrating all things BBQ, beer and country music, from 13 to 15 July.
The toe-tapping, lip smacking, finger licking event which gathers 20 top pitmasters from Chicago and across the country will be serving up BBQ favourites to more than 45,000 country music loving revellers.
Some of the country’s biggest country and western stars will be playing as well as a host of up and coming talent.
