  1. When we were stationed at Lowry AFB in the early 70’s this was our favorite restaurant when we could afford to splurge on a night out. We would go there every time we came to Denver, until they closed in the 90s. Their tender, smoky country-style pork ribs, slathered in this tangy sauce were addictive. They cooked their meats in a pit fired up with hard applewood. This recipe for their sauce was printed on a postcard at checkout and given to customers who wanted it. I have made this many times over the years - it takes a little time to prep and cook - but it’s so worth it!
