Orlando Food Truck Finds: Caro-Bama BBQ


I attended the Great American Pie Festival in Celebration, FL. Did I indulge in the all-you-can-eat Pie Buffet? Heck no, I had BBQ! Stuck in my love of Kansas City bbq, I was never drawn to Carolina or Alabama style. Never a quitter,  I knew it was time to try. I’ve been anticipating the first bite from the Caro-Bama BBQ food truck since I read about it on Twitter. The timing was never right for me to catch up with them until they participated at the Great Pie Festival.

Nothing was more appropriate to order than the Kitchen Sink. I wanted to try it all and taste everything. This was it! A mix of pulled pork, beef brisket, pulled chicken, bbq baked beans, coleslaw, Sweet Home Sauce, Bama White Sauce, banana peppers, jalapeno, all on a delectable open bun.  *Take a breath. That’s a big load! OMGeez Louise. This was incredible…you could hear moaning by the lake (sorry) ha 😉 This hit every salivating note and flavor you’d want in your bbq.  Meats were spot on tender and smoky and the addition of baked beans and coleslaw was sinfully good. Send it over the top, the peppers added a kick if you need it, and their sauces…..you know I’m a sauce junkie and these gave me a happy high.

Bama white sauce is a creamy tangy bbq sauce from North Alabama and the Sweet Home Sauce, another Bama fave, has a sweet tomato-base. Just hook a BBQ sauce I-V up to me now.  They have 5 sauces to choose from, so pick your delish poison and get on with it! I can’t wait to eat thru the entire menu. Doesn’t look like a bummer in the bunch.

If you’re in Central Florida, find this truck. I mean it, find it!  http://caro-bamabbq.com  for their schedule.

You can thank me later.

5 out of 5, a high I Q
