HOLT, Fla., May 25, 2023—If it’s Memorial Day, it must be rib time in Holt.
The Holt Fire District is kicking off its second rib sale of the year tomorrow and Saturday.
Ribs sell for $22 a rack with pint sides of Susan’s Restaurant’s potato salad, baked beans and coleslaw available for $4 each or two for $7, three for $11.
The 4 1/2 pound ribs, seasoned with a secret rub mixture, are smoked for four hours using Hub City Smoke House & Grill’s smoker that creates a juicy fall-off-the bone tenderness.
Ribs will be available for pickup after 1 p.m. both days.
The volunteer fire district holds rib sales each year to raise money for the fireman’s fund to support programs such as its annual Kid’s Day held the first Saturday in December and to help its firefighters when a need arises.
The Fire District would like to thank its rib sale sponsors Susan’s Restaurant, Hub City Smoke House & Grill, Ultimate Waste Solutions and Renalus Center for Kidney Care.
Directions to the rib sale: The fire station is located at 483 U.S. 90 West in Holt. If coming from Interstate 10, take exit 45, turn north toward U.S. 90, then west at the flashing light. The station is on the right.
