Our Story

Our story started back in 2012, when Michelle bought Kyle a smoker for Christmas. Kyle and his late father, Jeff, found a shared love for barbecue and enjoyed feeding family and friends delicious barbecue that would "make you rare up, snort, and run your horn in the ground."

This hobby became a passion when we entered the competition world. Throughout the years, Woody's Q Shack has earned many awards on the KCBS circuit including Grand Champions of the 2018 SLV Beat the Heat BBQ competition, and we placed in the top one percent of the 465 teams at the 2018 American Royal, aka The World Series of Barbecue!

Our passion later became a family-run catering business then quickly expanded into a successful food truck, and now we are a full brick-and-mortar restaurant! It is our mission to cook never half-assed, championship winning barbecue in a super casual family atmosphere.

We've built our business by believing in faith, family, the product, the staff, customers, restaurant environment, our community, being the best, doing the best, staying humble, and continuing to grow. .

Thousands of miles on the road and tireless hours of cooking later, we are now one of Colorado's best BBQ restaurants and top competition teams.

Today, Woody's Q Shack includes a dine-in & take away restaurant, special-event catering for up 2,500 people, training events to learn how to make your own BBQ and, of course, we are still on the road several times each year competing with and learning from the world's best pitmasters.
