Broken Bones BBQ

Fast Facts:

Family owned and operated since 2011

Their Statement: Broken Bones BBQ offers a rustic upscale dining experience for you and your wedding guests.

Location: Monument, CO

Broken Bones BBQ was started with a passion to create the very best barbecue, period. Premium meats smoked low and slow with select hardwoods, savory spices, original house-made sauces, and tasty side dishes made fresh daily. Together with a passion to see people smile from ear to ear when they eat, they believe this is the best recipe for a great BBQ experience!

Their recipes combined with their slow wood smoking techniques have been perfected over millions of taste buds. Owner, Randy Jensen, began his quest by enlisting the taste buds of some good friends who have traveled the country experiencing some of the best and most famous BBQ restaurants. Teaming up with experienced pit master Robert Clark, Randy and his friends set out to taste different recipes and combinations of spices until they were just right. Great barbecue comes from patience, persistence, and a relentless pursuit of flavor!

Broken Bones BBQ is all about great food. While food is an important part of life, so are relationships and the communities they live in. They love helping local groups and organizations, and have participated in events for local schools, churches, and the Air Force Academy and of course, weddings! They love to impress with both their mouth-watering food and excellent quality of service.
