    I’m with the Houston blogger – those must have been some might fine bottles of water.

    Comparing the photo the blogger shared with the spread featured in the 6/27 Eater Denver tweet you embedded, that Denver BBQ must have been in the $700-$900 range.

    Re: Mac’s Barbecue article

    With all due respect for Mr. McDonald, and I certainly wish him the best, he put his place up for sale with a sign which turns off potential customers (why bother to try a new place, maybe like it, only to find it is sold and closed the next time you go there?), he refuses to use the most rudimentary FREE advertising on Facebook claiming he has no time (he’ll have plenty of time when he is broke due to a lack of customers), and, in spite of being advised by Mr. Vaughn how to improve his product for modern Q lover’s tastes, he does nothing. It’s no wonder he has few customers, he might as well be selling buggy whips.
