I've seen a lot of food trucks all over Washington, near and around the Mall, and several in our neighborhood on Capitol Hill. They come and go based on the time of the year and day of the week, but generally leave after the lunch crowd diminishes. We had an errand in North Bethesda today and as we were driving down Old Georgetown Pike road, I saw a food truck, but a really different looking one. It was the authentic barbecue truck, with the big barbecue pit off to the side. It looked like a log cabin, and almost a permanent structure, because it didn't have wheels. But it was on a platform in case it needed to move. It reminds me of the stories we hear our daughter in law tell about all the back roads barbecue places she visited when she was writing a story about it for a travel magazine many years ago. In spite of the awful weather, there were a few customers. I'm sure it's really good, just was in an unexpected place.
