A sign on the door says "closed until further notice."

 

According to an Irving fire report, Post Oak Smokehouse had a grease fire inside one of its smokers on the evening of Jan. 24.

 

Fires can be a concern for restaurants with smokers. Smokey John's Bar-B-Que in Dallas, for instance, just reopened this week after it was closed for over a year from a grease fire. Its owners ended up gutting the restaurant. Also this week, Baker's Ribs in Grapevine closed after a fire. The venerable Franklin Barbecue in Austin was the victim of a fire in 2017, too.

 

The owners of Post Oak Smokehouse have not responded to requests for comment, and it's unclear how long the restaurant will be closed.
