Money Muscle BBQ food truck debuts in Maryland

The mobile ventures brings its BBQ to where customers are

Money Muscle BBQ food truck debuted in Silver Spring. The new venture, featuring American barbecue food, comes from married couple,Jennifer Meltzer and Chef Edward Reavis, who operate All Set Restaurant & Bar. During its initial phase, the food truck will serve Montgomery County and Prince Geoge’s County in Maryland, but will expand to Washington, DC and Virginia in its next phase.

One of soon-to-be standouts include Carolina Pulled Pork, a half-pound of pulled shoulder and butt meat slow-smoked for seven hours, plus Baby Back Ribs, served in one-third, two-third or whole rack sizes.

As a mobile venture, Money Muscle includes a menu of diverse barbecue styles and cuts of meat that also make their way to catered and private events. The food truck’s style reflects the background of Reavis, who hails from Emporia, a small town in Southern Virginia near the border with North Carolina.

The eclectic mix of barbecue favorites also hints at Reavis’ penchant for Texas-style barbecue. Expect to savor in Texas Style Brisket, simply slow-smoked with salt and pepper. There are poultry dishes, also: Applewood Smoked Turkey Leg that’s brined and smoked for seven hours, served with a BBQ demi-glace using turkey bones, in addition to the BBQ Rubbed Chicken, and Smoked Wings with a choice of Kansas City BBQ sauce, honey sriracha or dry rub.
