SOUTH SIDE BBQ CO. ROLLS OUT TRUCK
Pat Joyce recently debuted the South Side BBQ Truck, which he runs with his brother Mike. We're predicting that an offbeat menu item will become the company’s claim to fame: the BarBCone — a homemade waffle cone stuffed with pepperjack mac 'n' cheese, pulled pork, cole slaw, barbecue sauce and jalapeños. South Side BBQ Co. also offers other "basic things," such as chicken, ribs and brisket. For the brisket, which is smoked on the truck, the brothers use their grandmother's recipe, locally sourced meat and applewood. Find them at Coffee Buddha March 29 during the food-truck roundup.
