Roaming Buffalo Bar-B-Que Smokes it Up on South Downing

Coy and Rachael Webb are paying homage to Colorado's barbecue roots at their new smokehouse, Roaming Buffalo Bar-B-Que, which just opened on Wednesday. Along with pork shoulder, beef brisket, house-made sausage and a few other specialties, the menu of smoked meats includes Colorado lamb shank and bison short ribs. Colorado native Rachael and Texan Coy want to reintroduce Denverites to regional traditions that died out with the population boom that brought newcomers from the South's many barbecue regions.
