Porkroll or Taylor Ham? I'LL be the judge of that! Tuckerton Seaport's TRUCKerton Food Truck & Brew Fest is BACK!
This Saturday May 6 at the Tuckerton Seaport is this year's fantastically themed Porkroll vs Taylor Ham TRUCKerton Food Truck and Brew Fest!
If you're from New Jersey, you either call it porkroll or you call it Taylor Ham. There is no in between. I have always called it Taylor Ham because I grew up in north Jersey. You get a "Taylor Ham on a hard roll" for breakfast. Now that I live in south Jersey, I hear "porkroll and cheese" constantly and I STILL can't get used to it even 16 years later.
Regardless of what you call the meaty treat, it sure is good. This year's food truck lineup promises several Taylor Ham/porkroll dishes to satisfy everyone's palate whether you're from north Jersey, south Jersey, Timbuktu or wherever. There will also be great beers, live music, a pork roll eating contest and more!
Check out the list of vendors and what's going on throughout the day:
I am very honored to have been asked back as a judge this year to determine which among the 11 food trucks has the best dish of the day. This is going to be hard, because having already sampled most of these trucks' delights over the years I know the competition will be stiff. But trust me, I'm up to the task. In preparation, I'll be attending a Cinco de Mayo party the night before because what tastes better than some Taylor Ham after a night of margaritas?
Hope to see you there!
