Palm Trees, Kangaroos, and Barbecue

  • 15 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

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.

  1. 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?

     

    1. The late lt. Gov. Geoge Brown once treated me to the actual Daddy Bruce and his barbecue.

      That, my friends, was barbecue.  Love is the best condiment!

      1. Ain't that the truth! Daddy Bruce used to have an outpost up in Boulder. Back in the early 80s, I was part of a radio show out of KGNU. Every Saturday our producer and I would drive up with the tape for that eveninng’s broadcast. We always stopped at Daddy Bruce's on the way back. Nothin' else like it, though Sam Taylor's came close.

        This is interesting reading:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbecue_sauce

          1. Gertie’s March

            Tune of " Col Boogie"

            -0-

            Donald has only got one ball.

            Cory has two but very small.

            The balls of Jared are dry and arid.

            And Mitch McConnell has no balls at all.

             

              1. It was actually a famous soldier's ditty in WW2.

                 

                Hitler has only got one ball.

                Goering has two but very small.

                Himmler is somewhat similar.

                And Goebbels has no balls at all!

      1. Everyone knows that the best Colorado BBQ is a good old-fashioned traditional Colorado turkey BBQ dinner, just like the Pilgrims shared with the poor Indians that very first Thanksgiving.
