B’s Cracklin is one step closer to reopening.
The popular barbecue restaurant in Riverside has been shuttered since early March when a fire broke out in the pit area and left the building heavily damaged. At the time, owner-pitmaster Bryan Furman vowed to rebuild.
In April, Furman told the AJC that he was assessing two locations, and if either worked out, it would be a temporary measure while he continued to search for a new permanent B’s Cracklin’ location in Atlanta.
Furman has settled on a temporary fix for his barbecue joint. He has signed a lease at Emory Point, in the former Marcello’s Pizzeria spot at 1679 Avenue Place. This week, he will begin the paperwork process to seek necessary licenses and permits, including for a smoker.
Awesome news. I’ve been jonesing for some of his hash and rice. Can’t keep a good pitmaster down.
Feel free to discuss barbecue to your heart’s content in the comments. Try not to drool much.
