Big Hoss Bar-B-Q , at 3961 Tennyson Street, has been hot since it first opened back in December 2006, and earned raves from Jason Sheehan a year later. But this is ridiculous:
After a cook left the smoker open on Saturday, the Big Hoss kitchen caught fire -- and the restaurant had to shut down this weekend.There was no damage to the dining room, though, and owner Hoss Orwat promises to open back up by July 6.
