    Aloha, competition and tourist downturn has hurt all of Hawaii. Not sure if it is still there, but the name was changed to Smokehouse BBQ at the small location on Wainee St. The big guns in BBQ are now Dave's Famous BBQ on Front Street in Lahaina and Fat Daddy's Smokehouse BBQ in Kihei at the Kalama Village. With the economy being down, who knows who will stick around and who will go. :-(
