Macona BBQ in Collingswood will close its doors at the end of January

The boy in the cartoon mural on the wall inside Macona BBQ may no longer have a gleeful expression on his face when his father, dressed in his chef’s hat, lowers his ax.

Chef Cory Reuss will close the doors of his beloved Collingswood barbecue restaurant at the end of the month, tentatively on January 31st.

Reuss used Facebook on Monday to share the news in a video message.

Macona BBQ in Collingswood closes at the end of the month.

“As difficult as it is, we’ve held out as long as possible, but it’s just not a sustainable business right now,” he said as the snow fell around him. Reuss’s “kitchen” is the huge Macona smoker in the backyard of his restaurant, where guests dine at picnic tables in fine weather.

“As much as I and everyone else would love to keep cooking and bringing out the food we love, it’s just not going to be in Macona right now.”
