Pit and Barrel Owner Changed Hot Rod Grille Name

In what could prove to be quite a branding problem, restaurant owner Chris Ferrell, who over the weekend shot and killed country music singer Wayne Mills at Ferrell's bar Pit and Barrel on 2nd Avenue downtown, also changed the name of his upcoming restaurant near the fairgrounds, Hot Rod Grille, to Pit and Barrel. The switcheroo came about in September when Spike TV's Bar Rescue came to town to help resurrect the restaurant formerly known as BoondoxXx BBQ.
