Melanie, come on gal, don't YOU start this "Spelling Police" stuff. God know's I am the world's worst speller.(See) and for what ever reason there is no spell check here. And (fact) I type about 80-85 WPM, and sometimes I don't know who is 'driving' these old fingres.(and I type faster than I think most of the time - but that showes I'm sure from the names I have been called. And Cary, Great--Scott has called ME every thing but White! Like you I said "Prove it"..and like you...it can't be done.
Anyway....just my opinoin here
Red Barn in Aztec was very good all around.
Spare Rib in Farmington.....ok..but that's all
Serious Texas BBQ...no for me, but then every one likes something different.(About the only thing I will not eat is a "Beet"...I would reather lick the floor board of a New York Taxi Cab than eat a beet"...but again, that is just me.
Ergo....I enjoyed the Red Barn and hope they do well.
(Mel, for God sake please don't grade MY spelling)
Now 2cool, go back and read the posts. jonnyreb was correcting someone else's spelling in his post, so I thought I'd give it back to him.

I don't really care how people here spell. It would be a full time job to correct it all!

Went to the Red Barn and it was fantastic!
Most of the other BBQ places the sauce tastes like
its half vinegar.
I guess why there is a variety of eating places, because people have different taste.
Thank goodness there is varieties to suit everyone.
In my own family half the group loved my mothers
chicken chop suey and the other half hated it.
To each his own, but keep on smokin Red Barn.

He is not a criminal you need to get your facts right before you slander someone. I think they can check your IP and find out who is posting slanderous info.

No he is not. It is his brother as my previous post has stated. Get it right before you go slandering people.

As far as Serious Texas the one in Durango is really good. The one in Farmington really stinks. Been there 4 time and everytime the meat was so dry you would get choked. No thanks.
Went to Red Barn and was thrilled, the pork was so juicy and flavorful I went back the next day and 3 days after that. The place has been clean everytime and only one of the cashiers is pretty slow but nothing that would keep me away. Spare Ribs is a tad on the boring and the last couple times the pork has to much hard end pieces mixed in. Way to go Red Barn, comin back soon.

Congratulations to the Dandruffs! The restaurant should do very well, especially when you consider how hard working this family has always been. They are kind, compassionate, and down to earth¯people. Their parents were some of the finest individuals I have ever known, and I have no doubt they would be proud of their children; I know we are.

"How much for one rib"? "Do you have change for a hundred"?

LOFL, that is priceless.
