Backwoods BBQ, a food truck previously located at the old Chief’s building on Route 14 at North, has moved to Mathews Court House in the parking lot of the old Texaco gas station on Main Street.
Owner Doug Walker of Gloucester said he will continue to offer his signature ribs, Boston butts, St. Louis-style brisket, and North Carolina-style pulled pork barbecue with homemade barbecue sauce.
Aided by his longtime friend Randy Jack, Walker smokes his product for 10-14 hours in a smoker fired by hardwood, usually pecan, oak or cherry. Customers can visit the truck to buy a meal, complete with homemade cole slaw, potato salad, and macaroni salad made by Barbie Rens, or they can purchase by the pound or half pound. For larger orders, such as a whole butt, brisket or more than 10 racks of ribs, they need you to call a week in advance.

Walker said he will also take his truck on-site to cater weddings, birthdays, and other events.
