Starting today, we are asking for you to submit your favorite food truck for our 2019 Food Truck BBQ Of The Year Contest. In 2008 Roy Choi introduce the mobile food industry to something it had never seen before…Korean food truck BBQ.

Since then the industry has exploded with nothing but growth projected through the year 2020. Barbecue truck cuisine varies by region, with the four main US styles named after their place of origin: Memphis, North Carolina, Kansas City and Texas.

Will last year’s winner Gotta Q from Cumberland, RI maintain their title in 2019? Or will we have a new champion?

Like all of our other contests, this contest will open today and will be run in two stages. For the next two weeks (we will accept emails submitted by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Friday May 17, 2019)  we will give our readers the opportunity to submit their choices via contact form below or by email at: contest [at] mobile-cuisine [dot] com. Once the data has been collected and counted, we will open a poll (Monday May 20, 2019) that allows for voting for the top 10 email submissions.

Eligibility For 2019 Food Truck BBQ Of The Year Contest

To be eligible for the final poll, the vendor needs to have opened before April 2019 and must regularly serve bbq from their truck, cart or trailer. The vendors need to sell to their local community on a regular basis which means competition BBQ teams who own a trailer will not be considered. Vendors can be located in anywhere in the world so feel free to submit choices from outside of North America.

We look forward to receiving your submissions. BBQ vendors are free to submit their own carts or trucks for consideration. Voters may vote as often as you wish. The only request we have is that you submit one entry at a time. Please include the name of the vendor, as well as the city  or area the they operate in.

So let the voting begin. And remember, vote early and vote often.
