After taping the show, Thompson, a North Carolina native, brought his talents to Jacksonville, NC, setting up his food truck and catering business just as the City of Jacksonville updated its ordinance for allowing food trucks to operate within city limits.

You can taste some of Legacy BBQ’s deliciousness at Humphrey Farms’ Eastern NC’s Battle of the BBQ Trucks event on August 28, 2021, in Hubert, NC, which will also feature a Mac ‘n Cheese cook-off.  A fun day with great food is in store!
