Bar-B-Que Rush, the first in Caliente’s new Food Truck Spotlight series, was a trailer born for promotion.
Owner Jason Scott said the initial intent was to use the vehicle to push his line of barbecue sauces.
Scott and his partners sell their sauces under the Black Tie Foods Co. moniker. Their products are on store shelves in Tucson, Phoenix and in Mexico.
The sauce gives the menu a distinct flavor, but “it comes with the meal, so nobody buys any extra from the trailer,” Scott said in an interview earlier this year. “It really has become two businesses.”
Bar-B-Que Rush serves Texas-style barbecue and offers five types of meats: brisket, pork, ribs, chicken and sausage. You can order one meat with a plate of potato salad, coleslaw, beans and a soda for $10 or get a two-meat combo for $13.
