Back in Town and went to Porky's BBQ

I moved to Denver, a few months ago, end of November. I came back to visit my mom and saw what I thought to be some hype for yet another BBQ place that was being overhyped like Baby Blues BBQ last year.

Seeing Professor Salt, Thi N and a few other of the old posters in the thread helped me decide okay something is going on here besides the hype.

Wes's reviews are spot on. I really liked all of the items. The sides being homemade and not Smart and Iris types was a major plus.
The meats were smokey and actually as sweet as good pork gets from a good time in the smoker.

The Hobo plate is not available early morning but more of the later afternoons evenings.

I wish I had gotten the candied yams. Has anyone had them?
The greens, mac n cheese, dirty rice were all splendid.

I am always happy to visit home in LA for this sort of food.

It is non existent in Denver. If I could get Peruvian, some Japanese and Beard Papa in Denver......

    I had the pork ribs and brisket.
    Also the Golden bird. $2.78 for 2 pcs and biscuit. You can still splurge a little and have some bbq and get a piece of the bird

    Its great stuff.

      Which meats did you have at Porky's -- pulled pork, baby back ribs or pork spare ribs?

      I'm going for Porky's pork spare ribs tonight -- if I can resist the tasty Godlen Bird Fried Chicken.
