Vegan Barbecue Kickstarter

Vegan Barbecue Kickstarter

Vegan food cart Homegrown Smoker seeks funds to expand to a second location.


Portland-based food cart Homegrown Smoker is looking to open a second cart with the help of donations collected from Kickstarter. The cart, which specializes in gourmet vegan barbecue, has seen growing success since opening in April of 2009, and seeks $5,000 by March 15 to assist in handling costs of kitchen appliances—such as stoves, grills, sinks, and a hood system—for an additional location. Homegrown Smoker has been winning over Portlanders with menu items such as apple-smoked “pastrami” sandwiches on grilled rye, gluten-free cornbread, and mac-n-cheese relleno burritos. The operators have already been offered more than $3,000 from 65 donors, but 20 days still remain for the Kickstarter project.
