Did you know….

The process of smoking pork was created when the Spanish settlers first arrived in the United States. They watched natives building a smoky fire underneath their game, and took notice of how the process kept bugs away and preserved the meat. This is said to be the first known barbecue process. Over time, the process evolved, with the migration of Africans and Europeans to the South. Pigs became a main source of meat for people in the Southern colonies, due to their cheap price tag and easy maintenance.

Paired with a little barbeque sauce, cole slaw, and a bun, pulled pork makes for one of the best sandwiches out there. In Mexican cuisine, pulled pork is refered to as carnitas and is paired with onions, cilantro, beans, and guacamole, and makes for a delicious taco.(thedailymeal.com)

Ever since I engulfed myself in the wonderful world of Food Network Television, I have found myself lusting over the great tasting sensations that I see during the shows and envision those fantasy imaged meals in my mouth that those wonderful chefs portray. One of the shows I like to watch on the Food Network is The Great Food Truck Race.

Really cool show if you haven’t seen it and it introduces you to the world of the Food Truck Extravaganza! This world is a realm of divergent creations of foods that you may be used to eating but it involves a twist to what you do not commonly order on a regular menu. Well actually, those are the illustrious ones; you will find some trucks that offer a menu familiar to the eye but those I tend to pass up since I can eat that type of food anywhere.
