I voted pork but the reality is I probably wouldn’t buy from either. My experiences of pork trucks (Even the so called higher end ones) is of over cooked greasy shreds in a dry bun with tooth breaking skin. Although now you mention sausages, lomo maybe.
As for the yank stuff, i find typically over smoked, too sweet and unimaginative.
personally I see both as problematic.
what’s you planned modus operandi for your meat wagon? A pitch on street markets, (food/music) festivals? or are you going to operate like an ice cream van?
Yeah, getting the dishes right is hugely important to me. I really detest the notion of serving bad food, whether it be fine dining style or much more rustic fare.
As far as exactly how it will operate, I think to a degree that’s going to be a matter of trying a few different strategies and seeing what works. There are plenty of different avenues to explore, from night markets, traditional markets, big events, and just rocking up at busy thoroughfares at meal times. I’m pretty sure that if I am in Bordeaux centre that I can do Uber Eats, Deliveroo etc.
Both of those options are based in no small part about things that I really enjoy cooking, and cook to a standard I’m happy to sell. Southern US cooking is pretty popular in France (a lot of it actually originated in France of course) and there are chains like Buffalo Grill that do the whole Southern thing, it’s just done really, really badly.
