IT’S SMOKIN’: Louie’s BBQ Pit in West New York turns tragedy into triumph Texas style

Louis Morilla’s life was cut short in 2010 from a gunshot during an altercation in Passaic. In 2015 Luis Morilla opened his signature Louie’s BBQ Pit, in honor of his late son.

One day Luis says he was so depressed after his son’s murder that he wanted to do something that he likes and when he cooks he always remembers him.

Louie was a catcher for the LA Dodgers, but also a great hitter, his father says.

Despite his success, Luis says his son was very humble and giving.

“I remember there was a kid in high school that was getting beat up, and my brother totally defended him — that was the kind of person he was,” adds his sister Jen Morilla.
