BBQ Smoker Stolen from Jack's Tavern

It didn't take but 10 minutes before someone came up to me and said, "Did you hear the news?"  I replied, "I must not have, what happened?"  It was then I was told of an unlikely theft that still has me shaking my head in disbelief.  

Last Friday afternoon, someone came up to Jack's Tavern and stole their BBQ smoker out of their parking lot.  I'm not talking an oversized Weber grill you throw in the back of your car, I mean a full-blown, competition pit that's built on a trailer.   How it was stolen still remains a mystery as the brazen act was done in daylight not far from a bank's security cameras that may offer clues - those are being reviewed.

It's been long known that people who frequent Jack's say they have the coldest beer in town.  If you can get over the fact they still allow smoking at the bar, they do have a great selection of food at very reasonable prices.  Truth be told, they have a chicken pot pie soup the first Tuesday of each month that's one of the best dishes I ever had.  


  1. This has all the makings of a crime for the new century. In thirty years people will be posting whatever happened to Jack's BBQ smoker?

  2. They had a smoker? This neighborhood could use a BBQ joint!

  3. now this maybe just a coincidence but i was on 452 in aston heading to 95 and i did see right past the applebees and before that shady used car dealership there is a house on the right hand side that a grill for sale in theyre back yard that seemed out of place... i do drive by there quite often and never have seen anyone grilling before and it was a big tow behind grill

    1. Call Jack's (or the police!) and let them know this info. It could potentially be the stolen one and you would have done a great service.

  4. T-man: is it true that you are skilled with the horses? Who do you like in the 12th?

  5. The 3, 4 horses in the 12th (exacta, box) and you'll by drinks for everyone all night.
