BBQ. Smoked and grilled meats. Dry Rubs. All the fixin’s. These are some good ole’ down home foods that are a part of Americana, and are what’s cookin’ at Georgia Boys BBQ. Wherever people own grills and/or smokers, and prepare their meats in these fashions, these are all part of the traditions, particularly the Southern traditions. Everyone has their favorite style or recipe, some of which have been passed along through the generations. You don’t dare mess with someone’s BBQ recipe. Oh no. Them’s fightin’ words. So, I would never in a million years try to change anyone’s ideas on their BBQ style, however, I do love a good, old fashioned Southern style BBQ. After all, my momma was from South East Texas, so I have had many good BBQ’s in my day. In my humble opinion though, Georgia Boys BBQ, is one of the best we have here in the North Denver Metro area, especially their burnt ends. Their burnt ends are the BEST! YUM-MY!
We started yesterday’s driving adventure Out for a Drive with lunch. We were in the mood for BBQ, and my husband had never been to Georgia Boys before. I had been to their old location, but had not visited their new location. When we do our weekend adventures, we often like to try places we have never been before. But we also go back to places we really like, so going to Georgia Boys fit both of those requirements. This is NOT the place to go if you are vegan or vegetarian, or don’t like getting messy with your food. Georgia Boys is all about the meat. The mess just comes with the territory of eating BBQ. This is also NOT the place to go if you are counting calories. When visiting Georgia Boys, just throw that calorie counter out the window for the day. Just sit back and enjoy. It’s all finger lickin’ good.
The inside decor is very rustic, inviting and fun and is full of personality.

This is all that is left of the original Georgia Boys of Longmont. But by popular demand, this little house could no longer take care of the ever growing base of satisfied customers, and a bigger “house” was needed. I kind of miss this little house though.
As fun and inviting as it is inside, it was just way too nice of a day to be stuck inside. We chose the patio option.
The sauces. They range from sweet and mild to hot and wild. Pick the one, or more, that best suits your personality. Mix and match to your heart and taste buds’ content.
Let the feast begin! Larry ordered the pulled pork AND the burnt ends, with a baked potato and homemade mac & cheese and the Texas toast on the side. That’s a ton of food. Believe it or not though, Larry at it all. Every little last bite on his plate was GONE, GONE, GONE!
I had more of the “diet” plate, going for just the burnt ends, the seasoned home fries, the Texas toast and the baked beans. As you can see, I like to mix and match my sauces. I chose a combination of both the sweet heat and the Carolina mustard sauce. I am after all, a “saucy” kind of girl. I was good, and barely made it through 1/3 of my meal. It was not because I did not want to eat it all though, I just had no room left to do so.
