Smoking! A Heaping Helping of Recent Barbecue Action in Denver

As we were tallying openings and closing for our June 2017 Restaurant Roll Call, it came as a shock when we realized five barbecue joints — two Southern Hospitality locations, Carve Barbecue, the Jim N Nick's on East Hampden and Smokin' Joe's in Southglenn — had closed in the past month, while two others — Smok BBQ and Owlbear — have announced plans to open soon. In fact, Denver's barbecue scene has been smoking all year. Here's the most recent action, along with links to our original coverage.
