To our supporters, staff, family, and greater DC,

2020 has truly been a year like no other. Since this pandemic took hold of life as we know it, all of us here at Smoke & Barrel has fought to continue serving great BBQ to our community as well as doing everything possible to preserve our livelihood. We are truly grateful for all the support we have received from you all and it has definitely helped keep us in the fight up to this point. Sadly, we have come to the realization that with the pandemic back on the rise and such limitations on dine-in service and our need to survive almost purely on carry-out and delivery, we cannot survive the winter with our existing format. Therefore, we have made the painful decision not to re-open after the Thanksgiving break but instead work towards finding a more functional and financially viable way to move forward.

I want to personally thank all our staff for risking their health by coming in week after week during such challenging times all in an effort to keep Smoke & Barrel alive. Without them, we could not have made it this long. I truly appreciate everything they have done and I hope we can all come back together in the near future as we work to find a way to navigate such uncertain times.

-John Andrade, principal
