Great BBQ starts with the smoke – BrushFire BBQ uses only locally sourced and Arizona grown Mesquite and Pecan hardwoods for our slow cooking wood burning smokers. With a variety of made-from-scratch BBQ sauces crafted in house, all flavors are featured – sweet and thick, to thin, with a vinegar bite. BrushFire BBQ’s signature smoked meats are always paired with locally baked fresh breads, made from scratch sides and served with a smile from our staff. Each original recipe is created in our restaurants and made daily with the freshest ingredients.
With a decade of winning “Tucson’s Best BBQ”, two years “Best Caterer” and national recognition from Zagat and the Huffington post, you are sure to become addicted.
This is hilly area with enormous boulders that tower as high as the buildings downtown. With the yellow-green lichen growing on them, they look like something from another world. Every time you crest a ridge you're treated to a new vista, and you get some of the best views of the Superstitions, Weaver's Needle and Four Peaks that you've ever seen.
Enormous coveys of quail make their homes here, as do javelina, deer, and hundreds of birds and smaller mammals. In spite of the lengthy drought, springs continue to provide water year-round. Ruins of old mining shacks dot the landscape here, and scattered along the hillsides are piles of stones put there by Spaniards to mark their mining claims.
A permit is required for this trail. It’s easy to obtain and free. Carry it with you at all times. This is a highly sensitive area and subject to closure. The trail passes through scenic Sonoran Desert with views of Goldfield and Superstition Mountains. Several short, steep rocky climbs that require careful tire placement and some driving skill. Suitable for aggressive stock SUVs with high ground clearance. Go with a friend and carry a tow strap.
