Only 20 minutes east of Monticello, along Route 491, is the small town of Dove Creek, Colorado. Sinclair of Dove Creek may look like an ordinary gas station/convenience store, but they hold a foodie secret….smoked meats. Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork and Ribs with meat so tender and delicious; you could swear you’ve gone to barbecue heaven. The owners of the... More

Really delicious smoked meats cooked fresh 3 weekdays, had the special 'Oinker' a smoked baked potato with pulled pork BBQ sauce cheese and sour cream - enough to split or save for later. Big TX smoker outside smelled great. Not a restaurant but the gas station store has several clean booths and outdoor stone patio area which was friendly.

They make some awesome meats. And they don't charge you an arm and a leg like most places. The place is very clean and pleasant to eat in even though it is a gas station. They have a great baked potato. You have to try it. I only wish they had their meats 7 days a week.

Laurie and Mike are the new owners/operators with a history of successful restaurant/businesses. On this visit a pound of pulled pork for $3.25 with a side... More
