Where’s the beef? Restaurant stunned by theft of 1,700-pound grill

Son of a brisket, they even took the brisket.

Albuqueque, N.M.-based restaurant Pepper’s Ole Fashion BBQ was shocked to find its 1,700-pound barbecue pit missing on Sunday morning, owner Daniel Morgan told the Albuquerque Journal, according to Time magazine. Morgan is understandably perplexed about the motives for the crime.  

“What on God’s earth do you think they would want with it?” he asked the paper, suggesting that maybe the person behind the crime enjoyed the “meat smell.”
