7. Switchback Smokehouse @Switchback-Smokehouse -
This place is a short drive outside of Denver, but it is worth it. I would recommend trying to go on a sunny day so you can enjoy the picnic tables, but it is great. The food you can find here is hands down the best you will have to drive for.
6. Waynes Smoke Shack @Waynes-Smoke-Shack-True-Texas-BBQ -
With an owner that was raised on the Texas style BBQ it will be easy to see the food is going to have the same qualities. The food is amazing and it could easily leap frog in the future to the best place for BBQ in Denver. When you are eating here the slow cooked pork is amazing.
5. Piggin Out Smokehouse @Piggin-OUT-BBQ -
The big steel smoker is one of the main things you will find here that is looking good. However, what you will find is this is a place that is mainly meant for takeout. The pork ribs from here are worth loading your car down with napkins because I know you will not be able to resist eating them while driving.
4. Roaming Buffalo BBQ @RoamingBuffaloBarbecue -
When you check out Roaming Buffalo you will be shocked at the quality of the food and the amount of food you are going to get. The place is near the universities as well so it is a popular hangout for college kids. I personally love the wings from here.
3. Kitchen Table BBQ & Comfort Food @kitchentablebbq -
With food that is made from scratch this is a place you are going to really love because it has some great food and definitely is going to make it easier for you to enjoy the food. I personally love the smoked brisket.
2. Georgia Boys BBQ @georgiaboysbbq -
This is a place that has a couple of locations in Denver and each one has the food that is outstanding. The atmosphere is decent for a BBQ place, but the food is the amazing part. When you are here you have to try the pulled pork.
1. Ragin Hog BBQ @RaginHogBBQ -
Ragin Hog is a great place to go for some great food. The place is not really going to stand out as a BBQ joint to you at first, but it is a place that has the food that makes it outstanding. When you are here you will want to make sure you check out the beef brisket.
