Once upon a time, there was a barbecue joint on Locust and Broad named The Smoked Joint. Then they closed down and the space eventually became Kaizan. We always wondered what happened to ex-owner Adam Gertler… then we read at Phoodie that he’s skedded to be a contestant on season four of The Next Food Network Star.
Here’s the network’s bio:
“Adam is an actor and server who has made the kitchen his stage! Adam is the former owner of The Smoked Joint — a BBQ joint he ran with his brother that brought ‘the barbecue experience’ to Philly. Currently starting up a catering company, he constantly searches for new ways to bring easy, approachable meals to the table with a side of fun.”
Do good representing Philly, guy.
