This is one of our favorite places up here and they have cooked our Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for quite a few years now. We are going to miss them very much.

They have prepared many hams and smoked turkey breasts for us during the 19 years that we lived in Pine. I am so so sorry to see them close. We talked with the owner just before we moved and he is from Pueblo - I'm curious to know if they will be moving here!

Some have asked why. This is what I understand:
Their business is the busiest in the summer months and mostly with catering services. They have a hard time finding employees to work and then when winter comes, they don't need the folks and they have to start over every spring

Christi replied on my fb post this morning

Hello everyone. This is Christi and John with Cabin Creek Smokehouse. Thank you all for your comments and concern. We appreciate all of you that started out as customers and became wonderful friends. Thankyou Angela Sanders for trying to answer the question of why? What you've said is true, however, a lot has to do with just being tired! John is 75 and has wanted to close for awhile now. With our slow season upon us, rising rent, wages and costs in general along with new health dept and fire marshal regs it gets harder and harder for small business to survive in a small community. It's been a good run and we will miss all of you but we're not going anywhere so, see you around!

My bold. I so hate to see this over and over again - as in OVER-government regulation just killing small business. Pretty soon it wil only be Amazon, Facebook and Google able to afford to comply with all the regs.

I'd add rising rent as too many are charging Denver rent prices, look at what happened to the Crow Hill Cafe. Over in Delwood the rent is going up to ridiculous amounts

Costs are rising across the board. That's life in a booming economy. With increased operating costs come increased food prices. Some folks gladly pay the new prices. Others won't or will less often. So it goes. The restaurant business is a tough business. I commend all those who try.

Christi and John, job well done! Good luck in your future endeavors whatever they may be.
