The Grill ‘Em All Truck, the mobile burger shop that serves metal treats like the Behemoth and the Waste ‘Em All, recently won the Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race! While the truck is Los Angeles-based, the finale of the show took place in New York, and the weekend it was shot was the only time New Yorkers could sample the truck’s wares. Until now. In celebration of their win, the most metal burger truck, well, ever, will be doing a “victory lap” in New York City next week. From October 21 through 24, chefs Ryan Harkins and Matt Chernus will be popping up at locations around the city to serve their famous burgers and a few exclusives.
In addition, the Grill ‘Em All Truck’s chefs Ryan Harkins and Matt Chernus will be debuting their new “Mosh Pitt” BBQ sauce at Metal Insider’s release party for the new cook book Mosh Potatoes. The party will be on October 21 at the Idle Hands Bar from 5 to 7. Metal and BBQ, how the hell can you go wrong?!
It’s not often that they go further than the L.A. area. The last time they were in New York City was for the show’s finale back in May. So if you’re in the NYC area, don’t miss out on the chance to try the Grill ‘Em All Truck! You can check out their entire itinerary for the weekend after the jump.

If there’s one food that’s lends itself to metal, it’s burgers. Anyone from Chicago knows about the amazing Kuma’s Corner (even Lady Gaga, who ordered a Judas Priest burger when she was in town). However, Kuma’s isn’t on wheels, so for the rest of us, there’s the Grill ‘Em All truck. Usually anchored in L.A., the truck features burgers like the Behemoth and the Waste ‘Em All. Even though they’re mobile, for the most part, if you haven’t in L.A., you’ve been out of luck.
However, as part of a reality show featuring competing trucks, Grill ‘Em All have made it to the finale, which is luckily taking place in NYC. Seven trucks started out in San Diego, winding up in cities where they had nothing more than their telltale spices, and were forced to find fresh meat, bread, etc. In each city, the truck with the least amount of profit was sent packing until it was down to the final two.
Our friend Rev, who knows a thing or two about burgers, gave the truck high marks on his blog, Burger Conquest. We’re looking forward to giving it a shot this weekend, when the finale is filming. While times and dates for you to get your own metal burger haven’t been announced yet, we’ll definitely update you as soon as we hear about it via Twitter (you are following us on twitter, aren’t you?).
