Smokin' Jakes BBQ in Irondale, ON
Just wondering if anyone knows what is going on with this "chip-truck" style bbq place - i really liked the pulled pork sandwich i had there last year. This weekend i drove by, the "truck" is still there, empty - but the store/gas station beside it is being renovated/torn down. There was no info.
Is he planning on opening again this year?
I must have come on a bad day. I found his pulled pork very dry and really needing sauce. He seemed knowledgeable and wanted to chat so I will try again this year. It was great to find a restaurant near the cottage that actually had promise. I am up there next weekend and will report back.
Dear Valued customers and friends, as some of you may already know 4 weeks ago there was a fire at the Irondale gas station. Thankfully nobody was hurt, but the health department had deemed the area unfit for business until the restoration of the gas station and general store is complete.
This was a bit disappointment for me as I was already to open a second successful season at that location. This left me to scramble and try to find another location.
I am pleased to announce I have found a restaurant in Gooderham and will hope to secure the lease June !st. I will update Everyone June 1, 2010 and give everyone a firm opening date at this time, but I am looking at a July 1, 2010 opening.
Thank You everyone for your concern and support....See You all soon!!!
I sure hope he is open this year. His pulled pork is fantastic. We weren't as struck by the ribs.He told me last fall that he would be opening "May 24th" w/e and had plans to build a restaurant in Gooderham ?next year. I think his business was quite good.
The general store burned late winter.
