The Hot Box BBQ


Modern American B.B.Q.



About Us

The Hot Box BBQ started as a BBQ contest team that was led by BBQ master Abbie Rhoads. After several years of wins, the community began to demand a way to have Abbie's delicious smoked perfection year round. Her first cart was a tiny affair with only four items, the Original, the Maui Wowie, the Green Meany salad and the gound pig pork ribs. She was an instant success. People loved the use of only the finest ingredients and hours of preparation time that went into every mouth watering morsel of pulled pork or baby back rib. Soon Abbie's ambition to reach a larger audience with her award winning sandwiches overcame her and she, along with her husband Dan and daughter Cecilia sold the old cart and moved to Portland, the great grand daddy of the food cart scene in America. She added new, unique sandwiches that cater the palates of Portlanders like the succulent Sorta Torta and the blisteringly hot Volcano with new creations being added daily. After learning all the ins and outs of the food truck business they decided to bring their truck back home to California. The pandemic slowed that move down a lot but it gave them time to very carefully decide on a permanent home for their business and life. After months of research the choice was obvious, Guerneville on the Russian River! Bon appetit!
