Barbecue is more than a cuisine; it is a way of life. The flavor profiles and barbecue spreads can be vastly different from city to city, even neighbor to neighbor. Subtle nuances from the type of wood used in the smoker, to sauce choice, even the side dishes all make up the barbecue lifestyle. The folks at BrushFire live barbecue. The usual suspects, such as pulled pork and beef brisket, are executed perfectly with just the right amount of smoke and juiciness. They go beyond the standard fare by offering smoked turkey and grilled pork belly, as well as some original concoctions. (See: Messy Fries) BrushFire has six different sauces to please your smoked meat palate, and at least a dozen delicious side dishes to customize your barbecue experience.
