Reader: Denver's BBQ Scene Is Truly Insufficient

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. See also: For Ethniche, Eating Brooks Smokehouse Barbecue at Strange Craft Brewing Says Josh:

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.

Adds Jonathan:

Denver's BBQ scene....truly insufficient. In its infancy.
