Holt Brothers BBQ

Holt Brothers BBQ is a competition BBQ team consisting of Justin and Patrick Holt, located in the Charlotte area in the Piedmont of North Carolina. We were raised on years of learning the art of slow and low pit cooked pork shoulders over naturally cured pecan and hickory from our late father, who tended pits and made a top secret sauce (still protected to this day), during quarterly fundraisers for the volunteer fire department he was a long time member of in Badin, NC. The members took tremendous pride in their art, and the smell of the pecan/hickory smoke blended with the cold fall or warm summer nighttime air still takes both of us back to those wonderful weekends. We both cherish and revere those skills our late father instilled and passed down to us and are taking that passion to the competition circuit to honor his memory, and show the big boys these Carolina brothers are here to win!
