Think Denver is hungry for more barbecue joints? Krewe Crescent City BBQ opened on Sunday in the former home of Cantina (and many other restaurants before that), right on the corner of 11th and Lincoln. The owners of Stoney's, which is right next door, are the crew behind Krewe, and they certainly know how to run successful bars. But do they know their 'cue?

Let's just hope it's for-real BBQ! Please give me a taste of home (Tennessee). In the fierce competition of BBQ, I never even knew that New Orleans was in the ring --but c'mon and do right by this Southern girl, y'all! I MISS PULLED PORK, PEOPLE! !
Get it right, and I'll be a regular for years!
What's your favorite kind of barbecue -- and can you find it in Denver? Which joints do you recommend in this barbecue-hungry town?
