A Slaton BBQ Restaurant Is in Serious Trouble & Needs the Community’s Help
Slaton is a community right outside of Lubbock, and one of the restaurants there is having a 'when it rains, it pours' moment and needs the communities help.
It all started back on May 17th when Pitforks and Smokerings BBQ posted that the West Texas wind took off their roof, it took out their gas and power as well. So due to that, they had to close for a couple of days.
They finally got to open back up and pushed through all the problems. Then, they posted on May 24th, 2022 that they will be closing again due to flooding of their floors.
That's when someone stepped up to get the community to help out Ashley and Isaac at Pitforks and Smokerings.
According to the GoFundMe, this is what Pitforks and Smokerings BBQ said:
"As many of you already know, Mother Nature was not nice to them last week and they have had to close temporarily. The winds ripped off part of their roof and they lost electricity and gas. Then another storm blew through and caused flooding inside part of the building. They have lost supplies and are in need of repairs to the building, which insurance will not pay for, in order to reopen.If you are a handyman and could help them out, that would be great! If you are in a position to help them financially, that would be a tremendous help.Ashley and Isaac are good people, that cook some awesome BBQ! Please help any way you can, prayers included!"
