I've been there a couple times in the past and I thought I write a review now... still the food is ok, I had better. But the guy working there (a light ginger who I believe is the chef) is kind of full of himself.

From someone who didn't really enjoy Texas style cuisine, Smokin Barrel is more than a bang for your buck. It's beautifully placed near the Hamilton Ferry Terminal and the food truck more then adept to cater to large orders and quickly. Perfect lunch pick-up.

Hard to miss this place downtown in Hamilton by the ferry terminal. We took our meals in paper bags up the street to a park and ate at a picnic table. It was a little spendy for what you got but was good, honest fare. We got two types of meat chicken and beef brisket. It came with rice, very... More

The food is awesome, and the guys who work there even more so when it comes to food selection and giving local advice. Don't pass it up! Give these guys a raise, they earn it keeping... More

Call ahead and order or prepare to wait for the majority of your lunch hour for your food. BUT it is delicious so depending on how hungry you are, it is worth it.

It's chef had just won the top chef competition in Bermuda. Its a food truck, with a 4 star chef at the helm. I'm not sure what more there is to say. It's pulled pork is really amazing and one of my go-to meals. Lunch here is extremely popular in Bermuda and many corporate offices have Smokin' Barrel on speed... More

I went on recommendation from Trip Advisor and am happy I did. I had a small order of the truffle Mac n cheese and enjoyed it on the nearby bench overlooking the water.

The jerk chicken is amazing. Best on the island, hands down. A ginger beer (non alcoholic, real ginger, real sugar cane) is always a good way to accompany the meal.

If you're visiting Hamilton, Bermuda and you're anywhere near the ferry station, definitely stop by this food truck and order the jerk chicken (not sandwich) and French fries. The chicken was the most flavorful chicken I've ever had (and I have about 129 recipes at home on how to cook chicken). It's a bit pricey ($10 for a small portion... More
