Food trucks have given new meaning to the term “meals on wheels.”
No longer do cravings have toa go unfulfilled as a variety of delectable edibles are now literally in your work parking lot.
Moody is no exception.
At the Moody Professional Building located at 2603 Moody Parkway food connoisseurs’ taste buds will dance with delight as Colt and Stephanie Reese’s food truck, Little Bit of R & R BBQ, is on site Fridays through Sundays from 11 a.m. until sold out.
“I saw a competition on Food Network and thought I can do that,” said Colt.
Wanting to share their love of cooking the Reese’s brought their wagon of brisket, chicken and ribs (with the fixings) to the masses in Moody.
Serving dishes up since April, Colt is humbled by the word-of-mouth advertising he’s received from his customers.
Starting the barbeque competition circuit in 2008, they claimed many prizes, but in 2010 they secured their first Reserve Grand Champion in Backyard Division in Pell City. 
Recently the Reese’s took first place pork at the Sam’s Club competition in Chesapeake, Virginia and will be competing this weekend in Bentonville, Arkansas for a $150,000 prize.
Also making it through the first round of 750 teams at the Kansas City Barbeque Society, their next goal is to make it to the next round where they will compete to make it to the top 150 teams, then the top 50 until the winners are announced.
Including their three-and-a-half-year-old daughter Sadie in the fun, she loves to accompany her parents at the competitions.
By trade Colt shoes horses.
Growing up with horses, he is also passing this love down to Sadie as well as they currently have eight at their home in Odenville.
Graduating from Auburn University with a degree in Bio Medical Sciences, Colt’s made it his mission to do what he loves.
“I like to think of myself as an educated barbequer.”
Putting that knowledge to the test has scored big for Colt.
Not only has the Little Bit of R & R BBQ food truck received superior ratings on UrbanSpoon.com, the popular food website where greater Birmingham area restaurants receive reviews from friends, food bloggers and other critics, it also has a 100 health rating.
To skeptics hesitant to eat from a mobile restaurant, Colt says his food and the health rating speak for itself. The acceptance of cash and credit cards and Little  Bit of R & R BBQ on Facebook and Twitter are some of their ways of trying to expand their customer base.
Citing the brisket sandwich as the most popular menu item, Colt says he’s often out of them by 12:15 (they open at 11).
With the official start to football season kicking off within the next few weeks the Little Bit of R & R BBQ food truck offers catering for your tailgating and football party needs. All they ask is you give them 48 hours notice before ordering.
Thrilled to have the opportunity to serve in their home county the Reese’s invite you to stop by and try a little bit of barbeque.
“When we started out we decided we’d take our chances at it,” Colt said. “We’ve learned a lot.”
Proud of what they’ve accomplished in only a few short months he smiled as he said, “today was a very good day.”
