Farm & Ranch to Table – Steamboat Style

Farm & Ranch to Table – Steamboat Springs Style

How to throw your own Steamboat-style BBQ using fresh, local ingredients.

Screen Shot 2017-06-06 at 11.12.48 AM

Coloradoans live for summertime – those 3-4 short months from June to September when fresh local produce is in abundance. But one thing we have year-round when it comes to fresh, local ingredients is meat. With several working ranches that sell product direct to market, it’s a meat lover’s dream when it comes to preparing some of the best quality meats available anywhere in the world. The best way to celebrate the bounty of seasonal produce and to let local ingredients shine is with a backyard summer BBQ. With the BBQ season upon us, we met up with local chef Lulu Cox, owner of Amuse Bouche, for some advice on how to create the perfect Steamboat summer BBQ.

Even before the ski’s and snowboards are stowed, many Steamboat Springs locals are preparing for the summer running season. Road or trail, full or half marathon, recreational or competitive, whatever your running preference the town has something for you. I guess its not that surprising when you think of how many outdoor and athletic oriented companies are based here – Big Agnes, Honey Stinger, Smartwool, PowerICE, and Point 6, just to name a few.

If you are local or if you are thinking of bringing your running shoes on your summer vacation, here’s some events that might pique your interest:

Need some motivation? The Twisted Trails Beer Runs are a great chance to get a run in and enjoy a beer afterwards. Typically the run is about 3 miles on both the core trail and local area trails, depending on conditions. All ability levels are welcome as both a faster pace group and a slow group (including run-walk) set out.
