    Bye Big Daddy. Can’t say I’m a big fan of Carolina style either. I prefer KC style Q too. BTW, we would love to hear your thoughts on BBQ joints in Boulder County (Lulu’s, Rib House, etc) and who has the best sauce. It’s about that time! ;-)

    In late 1968, my wife, Candy, and I lived at the Rainbox Court next door to what is now Daddy Bruce’s. I can’t remember the name of the people who owned it before the Randoph’s bought it, but it was wonderful and they had a great jukebox. After the sale to Daddy Bruce, his daughter, Vickie Randolph, ran the place for a long time – she was a good friend. Hate to see it go.

      Hey David,
      I’m writing a historic cookbook about lost restaurants across America, and I’d love to include Daddy Bruce’s. Would you be willing to speak with me about your memories of the restaurant? If so, please contact me through my website at jayasaxena.com. Thank you!

    As a youngster, i lived in Boulder between 90-92…i dont care what style BBQ youre partial to, this man made some of the most delicious BBQ i ever had and I still remember it/think about it to this day…More so, the generosity and kindness they alwayd showed me as a little boy..Nearly everytime I went either by myself, or with my Mom or brother, they would give me free ice cream after devouring the BBQ. You will be missed dearly, Bruce. I always hoped i could pay another visit.
