We replaced the electric smokers with a Lang Smoker and an Ole Hickory Smoker. The BBQ has been improved dramatically. Also, Drew Kirkland is our new chef/pitmaster. Drew was the chef de cuisine for Kevin Rathbun for four years. Recently, he has been serving BBQ at the Albert. The Lang smoker is Drew's, and he is very passionate about his BBQ. We are very excited to have the kitchen in such capable hands.
