FIRE CANYON BARBEQUEYear Started: 2013
Catering | Pick-up | Delivery | Mail Order (no store front) Fire Canyon Barbeque - Being built from the ground up by Owner/Pitmaster Darren Shafer to satisfy meat tooth cravings for the high quality, slow smoked barbeque he grew up eating at some of the best BBQ joints in the Kansas City area and around the country. IT/Business Consultant by day and stick-burning, pigtail-wielding Pitmaster and Grill Master nights & weekends, Darren is an active Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) member, certified KCBS judge and Rocky Mountain Barbeque Association (RMBBQA) member who is studiously and meticulously working to master the art and science of competition level barbecue, then brand it with his own rustic sense for food seasoned with fire and smoke. His mouth watering, oak smoked meats and delicious sides are currently available through catering services, in person pick-up, delivery, mail order and will soon be for sale online. Darren plans to open a restaurant in Castle Rock within the next couple of years but until then, he is enthusiastically smoking up a storm and exchanging BBQ painted smiles with as many friends, family and local epicures as possible.
