Fire Canyon Barbeque - Built from the ground up by Owner/Pitmaster Darren Shafer and his very patient wife Bridget, to satisfy meat tooth cravings for the high quality, slow smoked barbeque he grew up eating at the best joints in Kansas City and around the country.


IT/Business Consultant by day and stick-burning, pigtail-wielding Pitmaster and Grill Master nights & weekends, Darren is an active KCBS (Kansas City Barbeque Society) member, certified KCBS judge and RMBBQA (Rocky Mountain Barbeque Association) member who has studiously and meticulously worked to learn the art and science of competition level barbeque, then blend it with his own rustic sense for food seasoned with fire and smoke.

What's Up KC!

FCBBQ is also working to find a suitable location to open a restaurant in the Greater Kansas City area, but until then, we are enthusiastically smoking up a storm and exchanging BBQ painted smiles with as many friends, family and local epicures as possible.

FCBBQ will always give first priority to local suppliers, vendors and hiring of employees to develop, support and promote local partnerships and commerce.

At FCBBQ, we're extremely excited to provide the people of Kansas City our uniquely refined style of barbeque along with personalized, professional service.

"Built to share a passion for food seasoned with fire and smoke."
