HOPE, Ark. (AP) - Authorities in southwest Arkansas say they found 160 pounds of marijuana stashed in an unusual hiding spot: a barbecue smoker.

Hempstead County Sheriff James Singleton says authorities discovered the drugs this week after a state trooper stopped two men in a pickup truck hauling the smoker down the highway.

Some of the marijuana was tucked away where ribs and pork usually cook, but the sheriff says it didn't look the like smoker had been used for barbecue in a while.

The two men are being held in the county jail on drug-related charges as authorities continue to investigate.
