MINNEAPOLIS — Sunday afternoon, Twin Cities chef Thomas Boemer went to South Minneapolis to perform some routine maintenance on his smoker.

Boemer says the smoker had been secured with steel cables.

“Whoever took it cut through those cables like it was nothing,” Boemer told KARE 11’s David Peterlinz.

“It was a very intense level of defeat, especially at this time,” according to Boemer. His family encouraged him to put a call-out on social media and within hours the community responded.

Boemer says in addition to the messages of support that he was getting “showered with,” he said people went out to actively look for the smoker.

Late Monday afternoon, a tipster had called Boemer’s Revival location in St. Paul and told staff that they thought they had located the smoker in an alley in South Minneapolis.

One of his chefs relayed the message to Boemer who made a “beeline” to the location where the caller had thought they spotted the missing smoker.

When Boemer drove into the alley he knew right away that it was his smoker.

I was just glad to have it,” Boemer says.

According to Boemer, police have not charged anyone yet.

Boemer says he’s grateful for the community’s support and their help in reuniting him with his smoker.

When Twin Cities chef Thomas Boemer posted to social media that his 2-ton smoker had been stolen, the community rallied around him in a huge way.
