Project Description

I’ve done everything I’ve ever wanted to do, seen just about every place I wanted to see. I realized that there is nothing we cannot get through together.

Parked in the heart of West Jefferson, Kristin’s Hooked on Smoke is a food truck run by a strong-willed mother and daughter duo. Locals and tourists alike come for the good food and personable vibes of the chef, Kristin Howell. A single mother, Kristin has battled through countless adversities to support herself and her child, including the fear of missing out on important moments in her daughter’s childhood. Her love for her 15-year-old daughter, Whitley, has been the force behind her unyielding perseverance.
