Fire It Up Pit BBQ

I received an enthusiastic e-mail recently about a new-ish barbecue place at 4628 S. Seneca called “Fire It Up.”

It’s owned by Shawn Naegele, Brian Patterson, Brandon Greenlee and Patrick Davis, who were appealingly described to me as “four friends dedicated to lip-smacking bbq.”

What a coincidence! I also am dedicated to lip-smacking bbq, and I’m especially dedicated to eating it.

Fire It Up is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and specializes in ribs, brisket, pulled pork, turkey, hot links, etc. It also offers meats by the pound, ribs only, and sides such as sweet potato fries and fried okra. The rubs and sauces were created by the owners.
