Today’s food truck Friday is all about the southern food that so many love… barbecue. In the south BBQ is king. You cannot go 10 minutes between Texas and the Carolinas without seeing a BBQ joint that probably sells “The Best BBQ in the Country.” While the love of BBQ does span most of the country do not think that that makes all BBQ equal. Even though it all goes by the same name, its styles are regional and loyalties run deep. Brisket or pulled pork? Is the sauce vinegar, ketchup, mustard, or even molasses based? Wet (sauced) ribs or dry rubbed ribs? Preferences and recipes change as you move around the country and depending on the region you are in, the BBQ can be quite different. Here’s where the food trucks come in.
Food trucks make regional BBQ a thing of the past. You have options… loyalties are given a chance to soften. With all sorts of BBQ food trucks roaming around you are sure to find the type of BBQ you grew up eating and then some. Food trucks, like the Love Bus, even put a spin on traditional BBQ by making BBQ egg rolls. If more traditional ‘cue is for you, then there is no shortage of options. Below we’re showing 3 of around 12 BBQ trucks that we have photographed. 12 trucks devoted to BBQ and that’s just the ones we have captured on camera. Don’t buy a plane ticket back home to Texas just so you can have some brisket; go out on a nice day and find a food truck. Spring is here and summer is just around the corner, so walk outside and follow your nose. I’m sure the smell of BBQ will be in the air.
