Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water.

dbarrow's Review of Cripple Creek BBQ

Main Fare:

  • Ribs - heavy creosote flavor and gray in color, this is an awful looking and tasting product 
  • Brisket - No flavor or rub to speak of, stand-up style brisket
  • Pulled Pork - decent flavor, small smoke ring
  • Pork Wing - this is the bomb, falls off the bone and pink all the way through. Black pepper spice rub but wish there was more of it.
  • Sausage - store bought Hillshires/Eckridge with heavy maple flavor, slightly tough casing
  • Hot Link - good heat but has an odd flavor - maybe tobacco, very tender

Other Fare:

  • Potato Salad - nice flavor with lots of pickels and mustard overtones
  • Cole Slaw - mushy finely shredded slaw with sugar and vinegar flavors
  • Beans - texas style pinto beans but not doctored up enough for my liking
  • Spicey Sauce - nice heat with heavy black pepper, this is the sauce to use here
  • Regular Sauce - KC masterpiece

Atmosphere:

  • Small smoking pit in front of the joint is a nice touch to bring in the drive-bys. Nice decorations with Texas pictures and cows/cowboys on the wall. Bill and Debbie are very friendly and accommodating and even picked up the tab. They've been in this location for just over 6 years. Seats 125 people and I like the multi-room layout including a smoking section.
