Best Barbeque?

I just returned from a trip to the Deep South where I discovered Moe’s Original Barbeque. It was delicious and satisfied my biannual BBQ craving and I know I’ll stop by Vail on the next trip to Glenwood Spgs for more. The sauce was different – a little thin without that tomato base. I’m trying to copy it at home but a mayonnaise-based “Alabama” recipe is all I’ve found to imitate. Don’t think that’s it.Is there such as thing as “Colorado BBQ”? I go to Brothers occasionally but what I remember most is the sweet potato pie and sweet tea. KT’s is pretty good but hasn’t ever instilled cravings for me.Anybody have any favorites? I tried to track down a place called Ethel’s once but it looked like it was closed. (Not sure if that was BBQ, thought). Ideas?

    You should try out Jabo’s on Arapahoe by DTC. Being a transplant from North Carolina I have to say it’s pretty good.

    I don’t know of any BBQ that is more of a Colorado institution than Daddy Bruce’s.

    I don’t think Colorado has its own unique and distinctive style of BBQ. Most BBQ in this state is about equally influence by Texas style BBQ and KC style BBQ. You can even occasionally find Carolina style BBQ, but it’s pretty rare.

    I don’t do BBQ, but I know Yazoo’s in Downtown seems crazy popular.

    I’ll have to 2nd Jabo’s – I like it better than Brothers. The restaurant is small, but the crowds are big because of the food itself.

    Ok, Jabo’s and Yazoo’s it is.

    tbradley – thanks for the reminder about Daddy Bruce’s. I’ve passed the one on Arapahoe in Boulder so many times without stopping but will have to give it a try. Come to think of it, I haven’t smelled the wood smoke there for a while…

    Wolfe’s at Colfax and Grant is quite good. It’s a small one-man operation, but well worth it. There’s even barbecued tofu for those of you so inclined.
