Barrel & Boar began as Yoho’s Catering in 1983, founded by Art Yoho after his father began distributing the first Southern Pride smokers in Ohio. Yoho’s became one of the first commercial BBQ restaurant and caterers in Columbus. The Yoho’s developed a passion for smoked meats becoming well known for smoking brisket and locally raised whole pigs. The restaurant was located on Westerville Rd. in the old Dog and Suds building the family ran in the 60’s and 70’s.
