Know this: Sugarfire Smokehouse is definitely worth a stop the next time you are in Northern Kentucky. Plan a trip to Rabbit Hash, Cincinnati, a Reds game… and enjoy some great BBQ while you’re at it!

The Food

I first sampled the ribs, smoked turkey, brisket, chicken, and sausage. All were delicious, though my favorites were the ribs + brisket.

Sugarfire prides itself on serving only craft sodas; as a Kentuckian, I was proud to see that they chose to include Ale-8-One at their Union location!
