By Chuck Sudo in Food on Apr 13, 2009 5:43PM

The smoke rising from Honey 1 BBQ Friday was no joke. TOC broke the news and Mike Sula went to report from the scene. A spiral fire broke out in the venerable Bucktown barbecue joint's chimney and worked it's way down. Owner Robert Adams, Sr. told Sula that it's uncertain when Honey 1 will reopen, depending on the damage to the pit and whether insurance puts up a fight. Adams remains optimistic. "People ain't gonna be able to do without my barbecue for that long, so I'll be back open in a hurry."
