Fans of Kristin’s Hook’d on Smoke Food Truck in Ashe County — Blue Ridge Energy territory — can’t seem to get enough of her delicious food, and the accolades keep rolling in!

In addition to this year’s Carolina’s Finest, she has won best breakfast, lunch, dinner, wings, burgers and BBQ in Ashe County since 2013. Kristin Howell is part of good-cookin’ royalty. She grew up watching her great grandmother and grandpa run Shatley Springs Inn and Restaurant, a favored stop on any NC mountain sojourn, and she has run several restaurants herself. Kristin’s specialty is smoked meats and wings, but she prides herself on making sure her entire menu is amazing. 

“Best food with the best smiling faces preparing it. Their food melts in your mouth and makes the soul happy!”

—Rebecca Neaves, Jefferson, a member of Blue Ridge Energy
