For Isaac Arellano, Pitforks and Smokerings isn’t just a business, but a home. Arellano, the owner and pitmaster of the Pitforks and Smokerings took over the business from his father, who had run it as a gas station and breakfast burrito stop along with a car repair shop for almost 30 years.

After taking over the business, Arellano went out on a limb starting a barbecue restaurant.

Arellano hadn’t had any professional experience with barbecue but decided this is what he wanted to do, and he knew failure was not an option.
