Pappy's Smokehouse launches food truck, Pappy's Rollin' Smoke

Pappy’s Smokehouse's famous barbecue is on the move. The restaurant’s new food truck, Pappy’s Rollin’ Smoke, hit the streets for its first official day of service on Monday, Aug. 26.

“We talked about [a food truck] for a couple of years and now just seemed like the right time, so we pulled the trigger,” said Pappy’s co-owner John Matthews.

Matthews said initially the truck will serve ribs, pulled pork and possibly turkey and brisket, plus an assortment of sides. Food will be prepared at the restaurant and held on the truck for service.

Matthews said the truck should be on the road about five days a week, and it will be available for catering as well. If the first day is any indication, the public is ready for Pappy’s to go mobile – Matthews said the truck sold out during its first day set up in front of Wells Fargo.

Fans can follow the truck via Twitter at @PappysRollinBBQ for its schedule and location.
