Smokin Yard's BBQ

At Smokin Yard's BBQ, the Yard family (which also runs the original Smokin Yard's in Idaho Springs) cranks up the Ole Hickory smoker for a taste of Southern goodness that doesn't necessarily conform to any one region. The Carolina-style pulled-pork sandwich is mounded with juicy hunks of pork, spicy coleslaw and mustard-based sauce, while the burnt-ends sandwich is served unadorned, letting the smoky, black-edged brisket speak for itself. You can reach for one of three barbecue sauces or add sliced purple onions, pickles and jalapeños from the condiment bar to doctor up your picks — though these meats don't need much of a supporting cast. For a real Southern treat, grab a serving of the complimentary boiled peanuts.
