The barbecue revolution in Los Angeles just took a small step back after Brick Smokehouse called it quits late last year after a pretty solid opening and rave reviews. It's a bummer that the Westside couldn't support an ambitious barbecue joint in a prime location on Hampton Dr.
Founded by Glen Rogers and Chris Sturge, the place also featured some great craft beers in addition to the sustainably sourced ribs, brisket, and tri-tip. The smokehouse had opened in late October, only to last a few months under the agreement they had set up with Venice Brickhouse. According to their website, they're still available for catering, though their social media channels (with the exception of Twitter) have been closed down.
