Baby Blues BBQ also has their own food truck which allows them to join in local festivals and bring the barbecue to you! Their most recent awards include “Beast in Show” Bacon and Beer Festival and “Best Overall” Sea Isle Food Truck Festival in 2016. Other titles include People’s Choice Award at Citizens Bank Park BBQ Challenge, “Customer Favorite” from GrubHub.com, and “Noteworthy Newcomer” from Zagat.
