About us

bringing homestyle flavors

Owner and founder James Woodard established Smokin Woods in 2013 at the encouragement of family and friends. Humbly beginning as a catering and pop-up kitchen, he transformed his passion for pairing good vibes and mouthwatering barbecue. Enlisting the help of his two brothers, James settled in the vibrant neighborhood of North Oakland and opened his flagship restaurant with one goal in mind – create smiles through food.
