"The true test of good barbecue should come well after the meal, when you get home and your hair and coat smell like you just came from sitting around a campfire.
On that count, Fired Up BBQ delivered, leaving a subtle char upon us for some time after we left the snowy, light-industrial strip mall where the city’s newest barbecue joint set up shop about six months ago."
"At least that's what I thought until I met up with Fired Up Southern BBQ, a more modest but not less worthy entrant in the local smoked-meats-and-accoutrements sweepstakes...
...most of the menu laid out behind the glass service counter, where quarter and half chickens, huge slabs of ribs and a bewildering assortment of appropriate sides are presented to assure you that you won't be leaving hungry."
"You need to go south for some authentic barbeque, but luckily not as far south as you think.
...The cold weather might be a reminder of our northern location, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy some southern comfort food"
"But I'm glad Fired Up BBQ addes another BQ Smokehouse choice to Edmonton's fickle dining scene as they focus on the wood to smoke the meats, timing and the meat meat meat!
...so make sure you come for lunch or head early for dinner so you don't miss out on possibly the best place for smoked meats in Edmonton!"
"I just moved to Edmonton and have already dined at Fired Up BBQ several times. It is excellent BBQ - fantastic meat and loads of options for delicious salds and sides. The challenge is in the choosing as everything offered is excellent."
"Walk in. That smell hits you, that beautiful meat, rub, smoke smell. I am ready to drool just thinking about it."
"Check out Fired Up BBQ and enjoy some very tasty and succulent BBQ at a reasonable price. PS - portions are more than generous, atmosphere is very casual."
"The food is just crazy good. We had pulled pork, ribs, and brisket and oh boy....it is so tasty, tender, and fresh. The sides were delish as well. We had corn, cornbread, beans, potato salad, and a fantastic pickle. Zero complaints."
"I promise you'll soon be planning weekly excursions here to get some quality southern style BBQ in ya belly! I don't do a two hour drive just to get any old BBQ! This the bomb spot."
