According to local food writer J.C. Reid, this post on Yelp that Pierson and Company Bar-B-Que may return in September reflects the sincere wishes of owner Clarence Pierson, who closed the restaurant after knee surgery made it impossible for him to tend his pits. However, Reid tells Eater that he's viewing the news with cautious optimism, as Pierson has made similar statements before and been unable to resume his duties. [Twitter]
