Pit Fiend Barbecue

Pit Fiend Barbecue
This barbecue joint, which was started in 2022 by Michael Graunke and Juan Pablo Llano, former employees of the now-closed Owlbear, has continued to bring the smoke (and D&D references) to RiNo, but with its own spin. Along with staples like brisket and pulled pork, you’ll find such vegetarian options as jackfruit and mushrooms, plus a rotating sausage of the week that highlights global flavors and other specials that emphasize different techniques, including smoked confit duck with a wide variety of sauces.
