Photos: Country Time BBQ

Lawrence Barkers works the pits in the parking lot that front his restaurant, Country Time BBQ, every day. And as a result, even when the pits aren't going, the smell of that smoke infiltrates the air, the shack, your car's interior and, best of all, the food at Country Time, which is some superlative 'cue.

Here are a few photos to go with this week's review. To get another taste of Country Time BBQ, check out our slide show.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Laura Shunk was Westword's restaurant critic from 2010 to 2012; she's also been food editor at the Village Voice and a dining columnist in Beijing. Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
