Best kolache: Prasek's Hillje Smokehouse

Prasek's Hillje Smokehouse is known for two things - jerky and kolaches.

For the second year in a row, Prasek's won the best kolache competition.

"It's the quality. We don't cut any corners. We use the best ingredients; it's top of the line everything," said manager George Brown.

Poppy seed kolaches are Brown's favorite, as well as one of the top sellers. But he also said his customers frequently buy sausage, ham and cheese, bacon and egg and other sweet kolaches.

"The kolaches and the jerky - that's what brings the customers in," Brown said.
