THE monster bakery truck has it all and the men behind the idea, Jim and Dennis Smith from Goondiwindi’s famed Gunsynd Bakery, are keen to make sure their home town is its first stop.
Jim and Denis will be launching Smith’s Pies Mobile Bakery at a family event in Goondiwindi Town Park from 4pm this Saturday (December 10).
The first pie to come the amazing bakery will be auctioned off, with the proceeds donated to Care Goondiwindi and the Cancer Council.
After its Goondiwindi debut, the Smiths say the mobile bakery will hit roads across Australia serving delicious pies up at major festivals and events.
Jim Smith said they decided to build the mobile bakery after lining up at an event for more than 45 minutes to receive a “measly piece of pizza costing $12”. Jim said he was also motivated after helping apprentice bakers at the Sydney Royal Easter Show and realising that people just loved the pleasure of having a freshly baked pie straight from the oven.
The 48 foot long monster mobile bakery with two built-in cold rooms and a freezer has the capability to feed 4000 people without restocking, producing 1000 pies an hour, cook 800kg of roast at one time, store 3000 litres of water on board.
Smith’s Pies’ flavours include meat and vegetable, pepper steak, curry, bacon and cheese, mushy pea and potato top.
