Secondhand Smoke Serving The Community With Love And BBQ

Secondhand Smoke NWA

Do South Magazine featured a story on Nate Walls, owner of Secondhand Smoke, a Fayetteville-based BBQ caterer with a mission to serve the community. 

  • Bring it to the table: Walls shared about the ups and downs of his past and commented on the power of food on a table to bring people together for reflection, support, and nourishment for the soul. 
  • Feed people: When COVID shut things down, Walls used the last of the company’s resources to distribute meals door-to-door around the community, not realizing this would turn into Second Helping NWA, a nonprofit to which he dedicates three days a week to feed the community.
