Though the website says otherwise, Keith Taylor tells me that he is out of Holy Smoke, 473 Leverington Ave. in Roxborough.

Last spring, the BBQ specialist set up shop in the former neighborhood bar, Farley's.

Taylor says his now-former partner is "in love with the Pabst Blue Ribbon crowd and college-age kids [who are] more interested in drinking than dining. We have parted ways amicably and I have retained and retooled the Holy Smoke concept."

He'll surface in March at a new location, 363 W. Browning Rd. in Bellmawr, now Smoke'N Dudes BBQ Co. A rep of the Bucks County-based BBQ company confirms that Taylor will take over that location and that location only.
