You might be hosting a barbecue in your back yard on Memorial Day, but plenty of people will be searching for a spot where they can get some good ribs or brisket. To help them make plans, we recently shared our Ten Best Barbecue Joints in Metro Denver — and What You Should Order There. And once again, readers wrote in not only questioning why their favorites — Winston Hill's, Switchback Smokehouse, Moe's? Brothers — weren't there. (Good reason OwlBear didn't make the list: It's closed, at least for now.) Others questioned whether Denver actually has barbecue worth touting. Says Andrew:
There's good BBQ in Denver? Where?
There's nothing around around here can compare to Texas, Missouri, or Tennessee BBQ. We need it badly.
