Marble is a tiny town truly off the beaten track and at the end of the road. The town’s claim to fame may be the largest single piece of marble ever quarried, but it can also claim some darn good BBQ.
My buddy Darrel and I went to Marble to hike up to the famous Crystal Mill. After checking out the marble debris along the Crystal River, the Marble Mill Site Park, and hiking to Crystal Mill, we were starving.
With the smoke rising from the smoker, the aromas of food, and an inviting porch, Slow Groovin’ BBQ was our late lunch stop.
First up – a celebratory cocktail! I went for the Paonia Purple Sangria. I love the small town of Paonia in western Colorado. It’s a wonderful wine area of the state. Slow Groovin’s sangria is local red wine from Paonia and local rum with orange, apple, lemon, lime, and soda water. It’s light, refreshing and a perfect post-hike cocktail.
