About Us

BoB-a-Q Smokehouse officially opened for its first season in 2021. With 14 years of smoking experience, a passion for smoking meat and serving others, and some urging from our longtime friends and taste testers, we took the plunge into the food truck world and have not looked back since. After starting with my late father’s homemade smoker, I decided to design and build a smoker myself and we operated out of a tent for most of our first season.

With an enormous amount of effort from our amazing family, employees, and each and every valuable customer we have grown faster than we could have ever dreamed. Now we have the pleasure of working in a state-of-the-art custom-built BBQ trailer. Minnesota winters and our full-time jobs limit us to working on the weekends from May to October at fairs, festivals, weddings, and other events. We cannot thank everyone enough for the support and cannot wait to serve you out on the BBQ trail.



“Just finished indulging in the smoked chicken from Bob-A-Q. I purchased a whole chicken and I must say it was absolutely fantastic. The chicken was moist, the flavors were on point and a perfect amount of smoke to bring everything together.”
