The Key Has Been Found for this Treasure Hunt!

Our most tasty prize package yet—“Grill Like A Pro”—will be going home with a lucky winner

The Treasure Hunt is a signature feature of Our Wisconsin. In our first two contests, we gave away new cars. After that, we awarded a couple of brand-new boats. Then came our Badgerland Bonanza package filled with prizes that are pure Wisconsin and worth thousands.

And, the person who found the key in our latest Treasure Hunt won our “Grill Like a Pro” prize package. This winner will be the envy of the backyard chefs in their neighborhood winning an array of grilling items:

  • The XL Big Green Egg barbecue and outdoor cooker. This ceramic cooker is based on a Japanese design that has a fanatical following of Eggheads stateside. Fueled with charcoal, it can reach temperatures over 800 degrees and can be used as a grill, smoker or oven. 

  • $1,200 worth of top-quality meats, your choice, $100 per month for a full year.

  • “Eggcessories” including wooden table, instant-read thermometer, rib and roast rack, natural lump charcoal, smoking chips and a Big Green Egg Cookbook.

  • UW Badgers grilling tool set.

  • Variety case of barbecue sauces from Big Butz BBQ of Siren, in northwest Wisconsin. This sauce has won national awards, and we’re including a variety of secret rubs and seasonings. All the best, no butz about it!

  • And, just for fun, an Our Wisconsin chef’s apron.


Every issue we printed a clue and eliminated 10 counties from a state map to narrow the search. Renee Keehan of Green Bay found the key in Florence County at Fisher Lake Park in Florence, Wisconsin. It was discovered Saturday, May 25, 2019 during Memorial Day Weekend.

The full feature story and photo of the winner is in the Aug/Sep 2019 issue of Our Wisconsin. Thanks to all who’ve participated!
