The thought of APEX’s custom high-end food truck touring around Hawaii is really cool! Let’s check out this project From Concept to Fruition: The APEX Difference to better understand why building with APEX is truly different from other job shops.

Customer Vision
The goal of this custom food truck is to replicate authentic Texas barbecued smoke house meats for the residents of the Hawaiian islands.

The owner o Sunset Q partnered with APEX Specialty Vehicles to design, engineer and build a custom southern-style barbecue food truck. The objective of the custom-built food truck is to bring the flavor of Texan barbecue to Oahu inWahiawa.

Design and Engineering Solutions

The objectives of this custom food truck align with the goals of the owner at Sunset Q. The owner’s earliest memories of barbecue began in Coppell, TX and spread to Austin, TX where he honed in on his pit master skills. He eventually moved to Hawaii, but always felt the need to bring Texas barbecue to the islands, so he began crafting the Texas recipes that won over his fellow Hawaiian neighbors. Sunset Q offers a unique cuisine, Texas-style barbecue without traveling the nine hours to Austin,TX.

This food truck was built with the intention of serving ‘craft meat,’ which is a way that all meats are hand selected and nurtured throughout the entire smoking process. Sunset Q utilizes a traditional method of slow-smoking beef brisket (and other meats) for a full 12 to 18 hours for that delicious ‘melt in the mouth’ flavor of true Texas barbecue.

An effective way to accomplish was for APEX to install the Ole Hickory Pits smoker, mounted to the rear of the food truck. The high quality and durability of an OleHickory smoker was the best solution for Sunset Q.
