Paul Schutt, former chef at Work Options for Women, just opened Tin Star Smokehouse in the space vacated by Chia's Breakfast & Lunch Counter at 16400 South Golden Road in Golden. Not coincidentally, Paul's brother, Andrew Schutt, owns Tin Star Cafe & Donut House in Evergreen -- another barbecue joint that also serves some killer doughnuts. Paul and his crew are smoking all their meat in-house, and from the looks of it, he could be giving his brother a run for his money...if not his doughnuts. Westword's Danielle Lirette stopped by Tin Star Smokehouse yesterday and brought back these photos.
