Guess where I'm eating smokin' hot barbecue"?

Lori Midson

Every time I drive down a certain stretch of asphalt, I pass by a dusty parking lot with a dilapidated truck and a huge smoker that emits the scent of barbecue. Over the weekend, my curiosity got the best of me, and I stopped to get a closer whiff -- and a closer look. And when I saw the meats in that smoker, I went all out, ordering ribs, pulled pork and Polish sausage, all of which were yanked from the flames by a charming pit master who turns out some of the best 'que I've had in Colorado.

Can you guess where I'm eating?

In general, we'd agree. But this place was good.

I have to say, as others have, that the Denver BBQ scene is pretty lame.  Many years ago Daddy Bruce and M&Ds did a pretty good job.  Now I don't waste the calories because I'm consistently disappointed.

A sign of crappy BBQ is the crappy throw-away sides, that in this photo look worse than the bulk supermarket beans, rolls and potato salad one finds at a soup kitchen.

Epic fail.
