Sugarfire Smoke House has launched a food truck — but not in St. Louis.

There's a new food truck hitting the road — but in Indianapolis. Sugarfire Smoke House founders Mike Johnson and Charlie Downs, alongside owners of the Indianapolis location, have introduced Brisket 1, the brand's new food truck.

The 24-foot food truck was custom built by Miami-based SKY Food Trucks and is wrapped in images of bacon, officials said. The menu on the food truck will change daily, offering Sugarfire's award-winning food, specials and desserts.

The collaboration with local food favorites isn't the only thing that makes these pizzas unique.

Brisket 1 will be available for lunch and dinner Monday through Sunday, with its rotating schedule posted on Sugarfire's Facebook page for Indianapolis.

Sugarfire opened its Indianapolis restaurant in 2017 — the first outside the St. Louis region. The restaurant is located at 24 W. Washington St. in downtown Indianapolis and can accommodate 50 guests.

The barbecue brand earlier this week announced it would open its 14th location, in Wentzville, this November. Sugarfire Smoke House will open at 1101 Lodora Drive, inside The Junction mixed-use development at the crossroads of Highway 70 and Highway 40.

One of St. Louis' favorite barbecue joints will add a 14th location, in Wentzville, this November.

In Missouri, Sugarfire already has locations in Olivette, St. Charles, Valley Park, O'Fallon, Washington, Farmington, Cape Girardeau and downtown St. Louis. It also has locations in O'Fallon, and Edwardsville, Illinois; Union, Kentucky; and Westminster, Colorado.

Johnson also owns and operates two Hi-Pointe Drive-In locations, one in downtown and the other on McCausland Avenue.

From new openings like Quattro Trattoria + Pizzeria inside The Westin St. Louis hotel, to the closing of Derek Schulze's Red Oak Biscuits and Fried, a lot has happened since March.

The other St. Louis barbecue joint that debuted a food truck this week was Pappy's Smokehouse. It rolled out a local food truck called Pappy's Rollin' Smoke.
