Stopped at Smokin Yard's BBQ not knowing what to expect. The smells were amazing and once me and my business partner ordered we sat outside on the back patio. It didn't take long before our food arrived. I had the pulled pork and he had the burnt ends. We both enjoyed this meal. It was the right price, service was very good, and a nice outside patio. Couldn't ask for more.

Smokin Yard's BBQ is a great barbecue spot in Idaho Springs. The pulled chicken was delicious and their sauces are excellent (be sure to ask for the spicy sauce). They have a patio you can sit on near Clear Creek, but we opted for inside since we timed our trip to the Great Flood of 2013. Warning: This place seems to get a little crowded because of it's high rank, and the fact it's one of the first restaurants you come to when you exit off the interstate (heading West). The food arrived pretty fast. It's a tad pricey, but worth it.

This is a great little hole-in-the-wall place, with outstanding food. We all had pulled pork, and were in bbq heaven. We were staying in Golden, and stopped by for a late supper after a day in the mountains. There is limited indoor seating, but there is also patio seating.

Well, that might be a bit of a stretch, but Smokin' Yard serves the best brisket I've ever had. Great, friendly service, too. We will certainly drive up from Denver just for the brisket. If you like spicy BBQ sauce use the 'hot" sauce. Not very hot but with a spicy flavor that sets off the brisket. Truth be known, the brisket doesn't need any sauce at all. It's that good.
