Gobble Stop Smokehouse

This week, the Riverfront Times ventures out to Gobble Stop Smokehouse, a four-month-old Creve Coeur barbecue joint remarkable for two reasons, only one of which is that name. Here chicken and turkey dominate the menu — and you won’t find so much as a morsel of pork. Photos by Jennifer Silverberg.
