BBQ on the Go | 5 Barbecue Food Trucks to Try This Summer

There are so many delicious food trucks in our area, and nothing hits the spot quite as well as barbecue during the summer months. Whether you want to try something new or return to an old favorite, here are the mobile meals you should look out for this summer:

Jimmy G’s BBQ

Jimmy G’s Pit Smoked Barbeque, based out of Fremont, Ohio, began as a way to build the community. It started out with fundraisers for local nonprofits and through word of mouth they moved to catering, farmer’s markets and, of course, their popular food truck. Jimmy G’s certainly knows good barbecue. All of their meat marinates for 24 hours before being smoked over real hardwood for 6-12 hours. Keep up with their summer whereabouts here.
