The Ghost BBQ and Spirits

Tucked inside the Boulder Theater, this casual venue serves up Texas-style barbecue. Look out for menu items like dry-rubbed brisket, scallion deviled eggs, and even a vegetarian pulled "pork" sandwich. 

Carve Barbecue

This fast-casual joint serves up hearty, homestyle barbecue customized to your tastes. Grab a pound of smoked turkey and a quart of red beans and rice to go, or settle in for a pulled pork sandwich and a craft beer. 

Globe Hall

This Texas-style barbecue joint has taken up residence in a century-old building that was once used for town hall meetings, but is now filled with live, foot-stomping musical performances. Come for the authentic, slow-cooked brisket and the no-fuss cocktails. 

Burt's Smokehouse BBQ

Slow-smoked meats and classic barbecue sides are the focus at this family-friendly spot. Try the signature pit master sandwich, which features hot links, brisket, coleslaw, and a pickle. 

Big Country

The brick and mortar location of Big Country's barbecue truck, this spot serves up a similar menu to its mobile cousin, including hard wood smoked meats like pulled pork and Texas-style beef brisket alongside house-made sides like mashed potatoes and double smoked ham hock collard greens.

Ragin' Hog BBQ

Southern-style BBQ is the draw at this spot. Try the succulent smoked ribs or hot links with your choice of sweet, hot, Memphis, Carolina, or Georgia-style sauces. Daily specials frequently include Cajun and Creole dishes like gumbo and dirty rice.

Brewshine BBQ & Tap House

This craft barbecue spot melds an array of regional styles for a unique take on the genre. Try the smoked pork ribs, and don't miss the extensive selection of beers and moonshines behind the bar. 

Roaming Buffalo Bar-B-Que

House-smoked, Colorado craft barbecue is the specialty at this laid-back spot. Innovative meats like bison short ribs and lamb shank are available by the pound or the plate, and scratch-made sides like white cheddar and green chile potato chips round out the menu. Make sure to get there early or call ahead, as Roaming Buffalo closes their doors when they sell out of 'cue.

Russell's Smokehouse

The fall-off-the-bone rib combo stacks up baby back beef and pork ribs to blend the casual with inimitable cocktails like the Smoke & Oak—a cocktail aged in oak barrels and served over a smoked chunk of ice.

Moe's Original Bar-B-Que

Don't miss the pulled pork at this Southern-style barbecue joint where specialty sides like house-made baked beans and cornbread. A large patio and a party vibe complement the freshly smoked meat.
