PROVO, Utah (AP) -- There's a beef over the smell coming from a Provo barbecue restaurant.

The city has ordered Lon's Cookin' Shack to quit using its outdoor smoker because a nearby tailor says the smell of hickory-smoked meat is seeping in to clothing that's being altered at the shop.

The restaurant's owner says his options now are smoke the meat elsewhere, use only indoor smokers at the same location or move.

Lon Allen says he may also add another indoor smoker. But he says that wouldn't generate any less smoke.

Allen has 30 days to appeal an order from the city's board of adjustment to shut down the outdoor smoker.
