Truck Stop: Throwdown Edition on August 15, 2012

One of the things you may not know about our What the Truck?! events is that we seek to minimize menu duplication. We know food festivals such as this one are better when people have more variety and options, so we ask trucks to submit their menus in advance, and ask that similar items be changed or dropped.

But recently, we were thinking – why couldn’t we use this duplication to our advantage? Why not throw a bit of friendly competition into the mix? And with that, Truck Stop: Throwdown Edition was born.

Pulled Pork Throwdown

Join us on August 15, 2012 for a pulled pork throwdown, where The Act, Nomad and Smokehouse BBQ will be putting their best sandwiches forward in the hopes of winning your vote!

What: Truck Stop: Throwdown Edition
When: Wednesday, August 15, 2012
Where: Edmonton Public Schools Archives (10425 99 Avenue)
Time: 5-8pm

The three trucks will be serving up slider-sized portions of their pulled pork, so you’ll have enough room to consider all three if you so choose!

To vote, we ask that you donate at least $2 to the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation in exchange for a ballot. Given the location of this event, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to partner with a charity with a great cause – learn more about how the Foundation supports early learning and full-day kindergarten here.

Stay tuned for more details this week on what else you can expect at Truck Stop!

  1. ooo….so sad i cannot make this one!
    love the throw-down concept and the charity angle – you guys are AWESOME!

    su  🙂


  2. Seeing as how it is literally around the corner from my home, I guess I have no excuse not to tell people they make pulled pork wrong.


  3. Great initiative of the different trucks.  I remember only 3 years ago that I was reading about this phemonenon in the US, but not in
    Canada.  What a hoot!  let’s hope that trucks like Philistix and others are opting for other than sandwiches in the future.
