Our Story

In 2019 Rodney had an idea to  buy a food truck that served smoked meats, sandwiches, and fresh sides in a gourmet style. He always loved cooking for friends and family, hosting special occasions, and having people over. He wanted feed the city and create a spot where neighbors met and friends gathered. 

In 2020, The Taste of Smoke food truck rolls curbside and serves at events of all occasions and sizes. 

"Man, I just love feeding people"

I was just a boy who gained a love for food from the first time I was able to help out my grandmother make biscuits. When I saw a powder substance transform to a fluffy biscuit that dissolved in my mouth and stimulated an amazing buttery taste, I knew at that moment that I had to share more in helping people experience what I had just experienced.
 
I have a story, but who doesn’t! I feel more successful from the many smiles, quiet looks of heavenly bliss, and compliments from those I have had the pleasure of cooking for, than any struggle I have overcome to get here.
 
Everyday, my goal is to have a positive effect on at least one person’s day with just one bite and every bite of my food that was made with love and joy.
 
The kitchen is the heart of any home, my goal is to bring MY heart to the people with Taste of Smoke foodtruck!
