It could be hard to stuff under the tree, but the BYO Jefferson Park barbecue joint would make a great gift. But you might need an IOU. Low and slow is a barbecue mantra for joints, but that philosophy could also apply to real estate deals.

Smokey's is up for sale, as one of the partners in its ownership plans to retire. But, like the patience a smoker needs minding over brisket, ownership will need to wait before any sale happens.
