About Wild Hogz Woodfire BBQ

Established in March 2021, Wild Hogz BBQ serves the Oskaloosa area with mouthwatering catering options. Owner and BBQ-extraordinaire Jeff Anderson grills up his wood fired smoked meats with flavors of hickory, apple, cherry, and maple in a reverse flow smoker.

Jeff loves working with the wood fired flavors and seeing how others enjoy them too. His favorite part of the job? Seeing people light up after their first bite of Wild Hogz BBQ.


BBQ tends to bring people together and serves as a bonding experience year-round. It brings people back to their roots, providing a tasting experience that is often an escape from civilization and draws us closer to nature. Wild Hogz BBQ aims to provide a culinary experience that creates memories and brings people together.


Jeff has always had an interest in the food industry, but borrowing a large smoker for a work event in 2006 was the catalyst of his passion for creating great-tasting BBQ. After cooking up a particularly delicious set of chicken wings that day, he began to envision a place that not only provides good meals but also nourishes the body and soul.

Driven by that desire, Jeff embarked on a journey to bring his vision to life. He worked with experts to have a reverse-flow smoker built using recycled materials and began cooking for small events. His next milestone was the purchase of a food truck, and after a year of remodeling it, the 1968 P-30 Chevrolet box truck was brought back to life.

Jeff’s career with a large industrial company is in Health and Safety, making food safety a core value for Wild Hogz BBQ. You can always trust to receive a quality and safe product.

To this day, Jeff is steadfast in his mission to make a positive impact on the community one meal at a time — and his favorite Wild Hogz dish? Still chicken wings.
