PM BBQ has announced it will shut doors at 161 Long Road No. 103 in Chesterfield this week, but co-owner and pitmaster Paul Lammers said the popular restaurant will return in some form. The last day of service will be Saturday, Dec. 2.

Lammers said he and co-owner Mark Ruck, who have been in the space for almost nine years, were trying to renegotiate the lease on the space for the past eight months, but they were only able to get an extension through the end of the year.

“You get to a point where it’s a losing proposition, as far as price per square foot,” he said. “We’re sorry to leave the (Chesterfield) Valley, but we’re looking forward to the next chapter.”

Though the dining room will close this week, Lammers said PM will continue to use the location for its catering business through the end of the year. After that, the business will move its base of operations to The Creative Cookery in Fenton and continue as a catering business with no retail carryout service.

Lammers said he and Ruck plan to re-launch PM BBQ in either a new brick-and-mortar location, or perhaps hit the road with the concept.

“We’re looking pretty seriously at a mobile component,” Lammers said, though they have not decided if that would entail a trailer or a food truck.
