Full Description
HI-BBQ is an off the beaten path food truck in Kahuku that offers pulled pork, brisket, and other barbecue goodies. It's difficult to find, and located on a farm, but our map pinpoint marks the exact location where you want to end up.

The truck is all to itself on a private ranch that few people get to see. That's what makes it unique. If Hi-BBQ is open, then you'll see signs on Kam Highway near the gated road indicating so. From the Kamehameha Highway, you'll need to turn onto Cane Haul 7 Road. You'll see a street sign for it and it only turns mauka (towards the mountains). You'll likely see the BBQ signs right where you turn as well. Follow this old and winding road passed the giant wind mills until it ends with a large building on a farm. Believe it or not, this is where you'll be eating even though it feels like you don't belong here.

The owner said the meat is sourced from the mainland, but they hope to have their slaughter operations in place soon to use their own grass fed beef. They are also making plans to import grass-fed beef from the Big Island.

There are a few picnic benches to sit and enjoy your meal while looking at the views of the ocean at Kahuku.

Perfect pretty much describes the experience. Some may find it pricey for a food truck but this is not your typical food truck by any means. Food is excellent. I like the brisket the best with the ribs coming in a close second. Just driving up to the ranch location is a worthwhile experience. Everyone, locals and visitors alike owe it to themselves...give it a try!

If you're a fan of BBQ, you'll feel right at home. We ordered the large combo plate for $25. It came with brisket, pulled pork, smoked rib, Sriracha cole slaw, rice, baked beans, King Hawaiian roll, and a pineapple slice. We also ordered the bacon-pineapple smoked sausage. The serving was generous - my wife and I split the combo, and we still couldn't finish it. I found it an excellent value for the quality of food and amount served.

My only complaint was with the rib. It had a strong aftertaste of propane, which took away from an otherwise delicious rib. Although the views are great, I wish there was a shady area to sit and eat. There are no trees or buildings to for shade. Hopefully, they will put out an awning or umbrella to make the experience top notch.

The ribs were tender but needed more sauce. The brisket was flavorful, but I got a lot of fatty portions in my serving, which was disappointing. With a little more work, this could be an excellent eatery. I am newly transplanted from Texas, so I know barbeque.
