    all-fired

    all-fired
    Is this AmE meaning 'completely'?

    like him better." (LDCE)
    Thank you.

    all-fired is just an intensive. so it can mean, completely, intensely, totally, extremely, etc. the only common use I know of "all fired" in AmE is in the idiom "all fired up" which means excited/enthusiastic
