Samuel Thompson opened his barbecue eatery, Porkys Hot Dogs and Ribs in Marysville, for a variety of reasons: culinary, financial, vocational and spiritual.
"There are two things I like — hot dogs and ribs ... and Porkys is born," said Thompson. "I wanted something different, to fill a need, something flexible and economically profitable."
"I was tired of going to Sacramento, Chico, Roseville for barbecue. There was no food in this area that catered to my tastes," he said. "(On the other hand), I had my faith that told me that faith without works is dead."
