Ribs, Ribs & More Ribs at WPB Firestation Rib Challenge

Firefighters from the nine West Palm Beach Fire Stations got together to challenge each other in the FIRST rib challenge. This epic challenge was hosted by The Butcher Shop, a 1920’s-era Airplane Hangar turned restaurant & beer garden, with a on-site butcher shop. The Butcher Shop is located at 209 6th St.

I was judging with T.A. Walker from Channel 5 and Reuben Dukes from AlphaMedia. I had the solemn duty to in partially judge all of these delicious ribs and I took my responsibilities seriously.

Watch T.A’s report.

Plate after plate of ribs and their associated came to the table and I judged from 1 to 10 on appearance, texture and taste. Knowing that I would never be able to eat a full 10 ribs and they were happy judge sized ribs I tried to just take a bite of each. But some were simply too good to not devour. 10 different sides going from the winning bacon on a stick two more traditional sides of beans coleslaw and mac and cheese.

The firefighters did not take this challenge lightly they all came up with their A-Game. But Firestation #9 took it to the next level bringing a mobile kitchen with where are they hand-torched each of the deliciously pepper glazed bacon sticks. Firestation #3 was fantastic with the meat falling right off the bones and I’ve got to say number two is my runner-up with their spicy rub and perfect smoke ring.

Big thanks to The Butcher Shop, my fellow Judges and most importantly all the Firefighters who work so hard every day.
