Monk: Towards the end of this video, Daniel Castillo talks about how barbecue has given him a purpose in life and kept him out of trouble. And now, he has the first offset smoker that has been NSF certified in the state of California at Anaheim’s Heritage Barbecue. Check out he has fed the community and brought his spin on Texas barbecue classics to Orange County.
Description: When the pandemic hit, Heritage Barbecue pitmaster Daniel Castillo opened the “O.C. Smoke Kitchen”—a part of his restaurant dedicated to hosting events to serve hospitality workers who lost their jobs due to COVID-19. At this one specific event, he’ll make 800 smoked pulled pork tortas, and we’ll also see how he brought classic Central Texas barbecue dishes like brisket roulade, Texas bourbon smoked ham, red and green chorizo sausages to California.
