Colorado might not be known for its own type of barbecue, but that doesn't mean great barbecue spots can't be found around the state.
Considering factors like the number of local barbecue-related award winners and barbecue spots per capita, LawnStarter ranked the barbecue scene in the country's 199 largest cities. Denver ranked the highest among cities in the Centennial State, ranking 13th, boosted by its score in the 'barbecue-related events' category.
Other Colorado cities were also ranked on the list, though none close to Denver. Fort Collins ranked 50th, Aurora ranked 60th, Colorado Springs ranked 71st, Thornton ranked 170th, and Lakewood ranked 190th.
Topping the list was Kansas City, Missouri.
