Just roll down the window and follow your nose!
Andy's Smokehouse Barbeque

   Hello folks, Andy Popejoy here for Andy’s Smokehouse Barbeque in Walsenburg” is how Andy’s familiar radio ads begin on various radio stations across the region.

   Since opening in July 2004, Andy’s Smokehouse has become a very popular stop for locals as well as tourists and travelers passing through Walsenburg. Andy is by no means a newcomer to the barbeque trade. He's spent years refining his smoking skills, and its popularity has grown tremendously in just one year. He just added another concession trailer and two more smokers to his operation in anticipation of another outlet at Lathrop State Park just four miles west of Walsenburg. Plans are in the works for his new ‘sit down place’ as he calls it. Construction should start by mid-September. “It’s just going to be beer and barbeque in a simple western atmosphere,” is how Andy puts it. “A fancy building isn’t going to make my barbeque taste any better,” he says. When asked what is good, he says “all of it”. But what is becoming a trademark for his business is his smoked tamales. If you want the best in slow-smoked traditional barbeque, stop by and see Andy at his location next to Safeway in Walsenburg, or as Andy puts it, “Just roll down your window and follow your nose — you’ll find us.”
