"Sauce is a condiment. In my opinion, it's optional." So says Don Hines, who owns Yazoo Barbeque Company. He came by his opinion in Memphis, where he worked on a number of barbecue teams. Instead of sauce, the pitmaster uses a Memphis-style dry rub on his ribs, pork shoulder and brisket to lock in flavor, then smokes those meats over pecan wood. After moving to Denver, he first made fans with his little Yazoo storefront on the edge of downtown; he soon added this second, larger spot in a quiet strip mall. And despite his opinion that sauce is optional, he puts bottles of his own homemade version out on every table -- but he insists that he learned to make that sauce here in Denver, not in Memphis.
BBQ comes more ways than just about any food on earth. We think our way is the best, cuz it's Deep South style. Prepared with our own Dry Rub. (sauce keeps the smoke out of the meat...put it on later if you like). Smoked with real Pecan wood for up to 12 hours. And served with genuine hospitality. This is honest southern BBQ . . . smoked through and nothing less.
