NORTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

A popular mobile BBQ pit in Lehigh County is now no more. As of Thursday,Tex's Smokin' Bar-B-Q is closed for good.

Owner Tex Wells posted the announcement on his Facebook page.

Just Thursday night, the North Whitehall Zoning Hearing Board held a hearing on the issue.

It said it has received complaints about the smoke coming from the stand, which is set up on Route 309 and Shankweiler Road.

Wells said the drama of the hearings came to be too trying and he cited comments made by an opponent at Thursday night’s meeting.

Wells interpreted those comments as mocking his struggle with multiple sclerosis.
