Steve Uliss

Chef/Pitmaster/Restaurateur, Bodacious Barbecue and Beyond
Born and bred in Boston, Firefly’s BBQ Owner and Pitmaster Steve Uliss developed his passion for food early on, amid the lox and half-sours at his grandfather’s Brookline grocery and deli, Bluestein’s.  At the top of his class studying culinary arts at the Massachusetts vocational high school he attended, at the age of 16 Steve was already hard at work as a cook in a local chain of high-volume restaurants owned by Barnsider Management.  He was accepted into the Johnson & Wales “Eight-Week Wonder” program for talented young chefs, and went on to complete his degree at the university in Providence, RI in just three years and eight weeks.
