My house in Arvada. Other than that it was Brooks in Denver. They are not open right now, but are looking into opening a new location.

Piggin out is a good spot. Jim & Nicks at Northfield is not bad for chain stuff. We've tried most and there are not a lot of stand out places. I guess if you smoke good Q you are a little more picky about where you go.

Colorado is tough. We have found only one rooftop of interest and have only been once so can't speak to consistency, Brickyard BBQ (Broadway & County Line in the old Nono's space). Good pulled pork and brisket. Prefer to smoke our own in the Mile High region. Save our restaurant experiences for K.C. and Austin area.

The tradition just isn't here to build upon. And the natives are too inexperienced to discern and demand better product.

Phatkid has the right idea. There's a place like that in Grand Junction too... my place.

I tried Serious Texas BBQ on Hwy 287 between Fort Collins and Loveland and thought it was great. Nothing fancy, reminds you of the BBQ houses in Texas, good grub at decent prices. Sauce nothing special, but the meats were all very good. I think their original store is in Durango, haven't tried it. Probably the best I've had in CO.

I get great comments for my pulled pork at my restaurant, Punky's, in Buena Vista. We're not a BBQ restaurant, but have a small smoker and have it on the menu all the time.

I live in Loveland, so we went there one day. Very plain. The brisket was tender but had absolutely no taste to it. Had to drown it in sauce to have any flavor (not even a smoke flavor).

I was at Oskar Blues in Lyons a couple of weeks ago and tried their pulled pork. Must say it was some of the best I've had here in CO besides mine.

Buddy, let us know when you open up.

Tried many BBQ places here, most are OK but the biggest thing that gets me is the consistency. I'll go there and it is good then the next time I go it isn't. I'm guessing that they don't sell as much as they do in TX. When I was in TX, even the bad BBQ places had a constant stream of people coming in.

Serious TX is good, very representative of a BBQ joint in TX. I just wish their sauce was better. Nordy's was pretty good, but I've only been there once. I've heard that there is a Bono's BBQ around here but I haven't been. I went to a couple in FL and they had good pork.

Just remembered another, Smoque in Basalt. Very good meat in a very nice contemporary atmosphere; not your usual BBQ dive.

Will be back there in August so I'll report back.

I've been to their location in Durango during my vacation two weeks ago. I had the sampler platter with brisket, pork loin, turkey and sausage and the other day a half pound of pulled pork. The meat was very tender but I missed the smoke flavor and more spices to it. The prices are very decent compared to others.

The other places were "Thee Pitts Again" in Silverton and "Famous Dave's" in Denver/Stapleton. Had great pulled pork, brisket and ribs there.

Their sauce is tangy and the ribs have no meat on the bones. One person can eat a slab of the spare ribs. They also over cook the meat for my taste.

I'll be glad to give it a try. Hopefully you won't just have baby backs like that other place in parker. Hickory House I think??

Not a fan of that place. I like their corn bread but the ribs aren't meaty and taste a little dry to me. I like my rib tips left on. Sauce is pretty good. I have a ton of those packets in a kitchen drawer.
