LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Smoketown USA, one of the most popular barbecue restaurants in Louisville, has announced it is closed.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, owners of the Smoketown neighborhood staple say it's time for "new adventures."

Eric, who most of you know as "The Redneck Jew", has a mind that constantly churns out ideas and inventions. He has decided to close the restaurant in order to pursue new adventures. (of course, it is now bow season so he will likely spend the rest of the year hunting and fishing, lol)

Smoketown USA has been open for more than nine years, and the Facebook post goes on to say that Eric will continue to do events in the community that will feature his famous food.

Saturday was its last day of operation.
