The barbecue, sponsored by Ferguson & Hassler Supermarket and held in the store's parking lot, will offer the traditional half chicken meal on Thursday, July 13.
This will be the first year ribs have been offered at the barbecue.
"People are interested in something different," said Chip Hassler.
After last year's barbecue, the supermarket asked the community to comment on adding ribs to the menu.
"We got a pretty good response from that," Hassler said. "And since we've had the signs up [advertising the barbecue] we've had more positive comments."
Both meals will include a four-inch apple pie, a dinner roll, and a bag of Herr's potato chips. The chicken meals will continue to be $8 and will include a half chicken. The rib meals will be $10 and will include a half rack of baby back pork ribs.
This year, the meals will also include a bottle of water instead of soda. "We have had more people asking for water, so we decided to do that," Hassler said.
The meals will be served from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., or earlier if they are sold out, each day.
People buying the meals will enter the store's parking lot from W. State St. (Rt. 372), pay for the meal, and then pick up the meal. Store personnel handle the delivery line while volunteer firefighters help cook and package the meals.
In 2016, the barbecue brought in $12,000 for the fire company. It sold 2,552 chicken meals on Thursday and 2,144 on Friday. For several years, the barbecue has sold fewer meals on Friday than on Thursday.
"That's one reason we thought we may make a change," Jim Hassler said last July.
