    After a month of eating barbecue, last week we served up our list of the ten best barbecue joints in Denver -- and the comments line has been smoking. "Wayne's is the best!" "Jabo's got robbed!" "Georgia Boys is yum." See also: The Ten Best Barbecue Joints in Denver

    The Ten Best Barbecue Joints in Denver

    Denver doesn't have much of a reputation as a barbecue city -- which makes sense, since the distinct styles of American barbecue evolved in other states; any methods or meat cuts specific to Colorado (lamb or bison, for example) disappeared decades ago.

    No bones about it, Boney's is a winner

    Though we live in a town that isn't known for its barbecue, Denverites have strong opinions about what does and doesn't count as good 'cue.

    Moe's Original Bar B Que expands in Colorado

    ​ Even though its lineage is pure Southern barbecue, the origins of Moe's Original Bar B Cue lie in the mountains of Colorado, where three friends from the University of Alabama who were fans of barbecue set up a carry-out shop at Lionshead, at the base of Vail Mountain, in 2002. From those h ... More >>

    A replacement for the Bugling Bull?

    ​ There was a time when I swore that the best barbecue to be had in the state of Colorado was at the Bugling Bull Trading Post, a kind of general store/truck stop/campground supplier down on 1668 North Highway 67 in Sedalia. Pit man Mike Frislie used to run a kind of outlaw smoking operation ... More >>
