Reader: Denver's BBQ Scene Is Truly Insufficient
Burt's fired up the smoker this weekend.
In Ethniche, Mark Antonation has been exploring barbecue all month; his final installment on 'cue runs tomorrow. And even as he's explored options around town, like Brooks Smokehouse, new places keep opening up, including Burt's Smokehouse BBQ, now smokin' in Centennial. But still, readers are hungry for more -- and better -- barbecue joints.
Brooks Smokehouse takes its barbecue on the road.
I'm hoping these new places are good, as the majority don't have any sort of smokey taste at all. Must be all the kale people love. On the plus side over the last year I've perfected making ribs and brisket at home.
Denver's BBQ scene....truly insufficient. In its infancy.
What do you think of Denver's barbecue scene? What are your favorite spots around town?
