The Dothan Fire Department was called to the new barbecue restaurant in downtown Dothan yesterday after smoke was seen coming from the pit.
Fire officials say the pit at Hooks Barbecue was clogged and caused it to smoke.
The screen at the top was cleaned and the health department inspected everything.
Sherry Siano, Hook's Barbecue Manager says the restaurant is open for business as normal.
Siano says the restaurant has been doing better than expected in its first few weeks.
