Big Wheel Pig Roast a Success

I love how Big Wheel Truck always serves unique, gourmet food using local ingredients. On Monday night, at the Audubon Park Community Market in downtown Orlando, Big Wheel outdid themselves with a Pig Oyster Shrimp Roast, using shellfish from Cape Canaveral.

The pork - literally hot off the grill - was so tender, it was surprising. Even before adding sauce, it was very flavorful. The pork came with a side of oysters or shrimp - I chose the oysters, and was delighted with their flavor. Big Wheel also served up a plethora of delicious sides, including Potato Salad made with sour cream and cheese, collards, green beans, and roasted sweet potatoes. All were top notch. 

Big Wheel went to the trouble of a hosting this huge roast to raise money for its broken-down truck, which could cost $5,000 to fix. Chef/ Owner Tony told Flavorful Excursions that he really appreciates the line of customers who came out to take part in the Roast, which sold out. "The Audubon Market is our best stop every week - they always support us," Chef Tony said. Tony hopes Big Wheel won't have to do another fundraiser, but the truck may put on a Pork Roast again in the future!

Big Wheel also makes other stops around town. Follow the truck at
