A new BBQ food truck is up and running in Clark County serving smoked meats on nachos and baked potatoes.
Scott Williams, the owner of Ol’ School Smoked BBQ said he decided to open a food truck after he bought a smoker and became “addicted to cooking all different kinds of stuff.”
He said that one of his friends suggested that he should start selling the food he smoked and “one thing led to another and I got brave enough to spend the money on a trailer.”
To make the food truck happen, he said that he partnered with his son, Bryant.
Ol’ School Smoked BBQ took about a year of planning with a few bumps in between due to the coronavirus pandemic. Williams explained that he was planning to get the food truck in March, but due to the pandemic he didn’t get the food truck until July.
The food truck, a 22-foot trailer with a 7-foot wide smoker on the back porch, was purchased in Georgia because no one around Ohio built a food truck the way he wanted it, he said.
Ol’ School Smoked BBQ officially opened at the beginning of September selling pulled pork, pork belly, brisket, chicken and bologna on sandwiches, nachos or baked potatoes. Williams said that customers can add “fixin’s” of their choice to their entrees. The food truck also has side items including baked beans, green beans, macaroni and cheese, potato salad and coleslaw. Williams said he also makes an armadillo egg that is pork sausage in the shape of an egg with jalapenos and cheese inside. Prices range from $6 to $9.
“All of the food is cooked on a wood-fired smoker,” Williams added.
The food truck, which is usually parked at 7510 Troy Rd. in Springfield, is open three to four days a week, Williams said. He added that they have also sold BBQ in downtown Yellow Springs.
Williams said Ol’ School Smoked BBQ is “slowly getting asked to go to different things.”
“It’s really good BBQ,” he added.
