Country Time BBQ, a perennial favorite for smoked shoulder, brisket and ribs, closed a year and a half ago at 2504 West Hampden Avenue, just as Denver's barbecue renaissance was gathering momentum. But all has not been quiet at the shack that seemed held together by little more than duct tape and hope. The building has been getting some TLC over the past few months: a new roof, new paint and plenty of other structural upgrades. There's also new signage going up announcing that Anointed BBQ and Soul Food will soon be serving fried chicken, fish and smokehouse offerings.

Anointed is the project of Marriese "Mo" Jones, a former homeless man who also runs Hedges and Highway Outreach Ministries, an organization created to help others who have been through similar hard times. Jones has held charitable events at the property and has also offered catering over the past few months.

While an opening date hasn't been posted, window signs indicate that Anointed will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., with later hours on the weekend, and that the menu will include fried chicken, whiting and catfish as well as barbecued brisket, ribs, sausage and pork.

Country Time BBQ was the previous tenant at what will soon become Anointed BBQ and Soul Food.
