Sugarfire BBQ

Larry loves his BBQ. We were out doing errands and he decied to go out to eat rather than cook at home. It is still his birthday week, so I let him decide where we should go. He chose Sugarfire Smoke House in Westminster. Sugarfire is mostly in the St. Louis area, but they are now branching out to other areas and other states as well. This is the first Sugarfire in Colorado.

Sugarfire is a new idea in BBQ restaurants. It is kind of a medium-fast food dine-in restaurant. It offers a menu that complements the staples influenced by the holy trinity of barbecue (St Louis/KC, Memphis, Texas) with daily specials crafted by our amazing team.   The emphasis is on the St. Louis style BBQ, created by Chef Mike Johnson. “From a sandwich piled high with pork, brisket, exotic veggies and/or fried treats, to a smoked Japanese noodle dish, prepare your taste buds to be hypnotized”. 

Larry chose the Brisket Muddy, which was a brisket Philly-style sandwich and I ordered the Brisket Dip. We split some BBQ beans and fries. Everything was very tasty and cooked to perfection.

Sugarfire also offers a variety of unique, homemade sauces to go with everything. I sampled the coffee BBQ sauce on my sandwich. That was really good.

The Westminster location is the first Sugarfire with a full bar that features drink specials, local craft beers, wine and liquor to suit every taste.  

Chef Johnson studied with Myron Mixon, cooked under Emeril Lagasse and Charlie Trotter, and has overseen the creation of six other restaurants. “Sugarfire has won so many awards it’s hard to keep track. [They] were named Best Barbecue by the Travel Channel, St. Louis Magazine, Feast Magazine, and [they’ve] won awards at the Memphis in May World Barbecue Championships. [They’ve] been featured on Pitmasters, Beat Bobby Flay, and Burgers, Brew, and Que. Both The New York Times and Snoop Dogg have complimented [their] food. And they really like that combination”.

The Westminster Sugarfire is a blend of its St. Louis roots with Colorado influences. The recipes and food are St. Louis style and the artwork is the handiwork of local Colorado artists.

You can dine in, or you can have Sugarfire come to you. They can handle any size party and will cater anything from 10-10,000. Nothing is to big or to small.

Sugarfire is located 14375 Orchard Parkway, Suite 100, Westminster, CO. You can dine in person, or give them a CALL AT (720) 639-4903 or order online at No matter how you find them, you and your taste buds will be glad you did. You’re going to love it. I GAR-UN-TEE it.
