Palm Trees, Kangaroos, and Barbecue

For all of its faults, sometimes social media can be an absolutely perfect window into a person’s soul. This Tweet today from Senator Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) is a great example:

Ah, beautiful Colorado — a land of palm trees, kangaroos, and world-renowned barbecue.

We’ve noted on many occasions that Gardner is difficult to find in Colorado. This is how you know you’ve completely lost touch with your home state.

    …and the best Colorado BBQ comes to us from Yuma County thanks to millions of our tax dollars propping up Brazilian crooks.  #MAGA

    What the heck is "Colorado BBQ"????  Basics are covered at Eater — covering

    Eastern North Carolina Vinegar Sauce

    Piedmont or Lexington-Style Dip

    South Carolina-Style Mustard Sauce

    Texas-Style Mop or Basting Sauce

    Kansas City-Style Sauce

    Alabama White Sauce

    There's a variety styles listed in the Wikipedia article, too — but none of them are in the Mountain West.  With Cory, I can never tell when he's being serious and when he's telling a joke … so perhaps someone else knows and can tell us Cory's take on BBQ?
