The Bacon Truck
Sam Williams and J.J. Frosk debuted their Bacon Truck at SOWA in September, and these food truck alums (Williams managed Lobsta Love and The Paris Creperie and Frosk managed Grilled Cheese Nation) certainly didn’t skimp on any of the ingredients in their first original project: homemade habanero garlic pickles, whole brined turkeys, slow roasted and basted in bacon fat, and original condiments like their spicy Dijon.
The concept might seem gimmicky, but with a menu that includes something like The Bacon Truck’s tater salad, a riff on a Williams family recipe with bacon drippings in place of butter, it seems that every detail has been well thought out. No doubt, The Bacon Truck’s signature item will prove to be the turkey bacon brie sandwich or their candied bacon dipped in Nutella (the pair said these have been the two most popular items at catering events), but I anticipate hunting down their turkey club, served on Iggy’s sourdough, during the weekday lunch rush.
In lieu of unnecessary sourdough (they consciously leave off the third slice of bread), Frosk and Williams pile on extra arugula, avocado, tomato, Blackstone bacon, a chimichurri aioli, and turkey.
