Give Me The Mike’s Best of Minnesota Guides are presented by the Desrochers Realty Group and eXp Realty
In Minnesota, meat raffles are a way of life.
It’s a simple concept — think of it as ‘bingo for people with short attention spans.’
For a $1, you purchase a ticket. The ticket has a number on it. Then there’s a big wheel. If they land on your number, you win meat. Maybe chops. Maybe bacon. Maybe filet.
Now, that’s where the similarities between various meat raffles end. Not all of them are created equal. So I went on a search for the best meat raffles around Minnesota and presented my findings on KSTP’s Twin Cities Live.

You forgot the Ole Piper Inn in Blaine! $1 a ticket, if you win you get 2 packages of your choice, the lady who runs it is great and comes to your table (notably with a giant cheeseburger hat on her head) and you get 3 rounds each try.
The top 5 picks here are crowdsourced on my social media channels. Unfortunately Ole Piper Inn didn’t make the list!
