You don’t win Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race without being an over-the-top group of badasses, and we’ll assume that attitude is what inspired the Grill ‘Em All Truck team to create The Napalm Burger. The special burger, a limited edition run for attendees of the 2011 OC Fair, is nothing to laugh at, combining cream cheese, a mound of pickled jalapeños, juicy burger, pepper jack cheese, deep fried jalapeño and cheese poppers, and a habeñero ghost pepper aioli.
We all passed the burger around for pictures, and the whiff of the habeñero ghost pepper aioli alone was enough to make us wince. Geoff, being the brave soul that he is, decided to take the first bite. Better him than me, right? #selfish #whitepeopleproblems

It’s been over half a year since the Grill ‘Em All Truck was crowned the champion of Food Network’s debut season of The Great Food Truck Race. Ever since their appearance on the show, we were dying for a taste of their expansive burger menu.
Our luck was good last Wednesday, when the truck swung by the weekly Lunch Truck It event in Long Beach, CA. That was enough coaxing for us; we hopped in our cars and drove over. We got down on a variety of burgers, here’s a look:
The gourmet food truck craze has swept across Los Angeles, Orange County and is creeping across the rest of the nation. Come May 4th, the food truck movement will find its way to Long Beach for the first time ever. In our continuing coverage of Food Truck news, best believe we’ll be in attendance:
When Food Network aired its original season of The Great Food Truck Race, it was major airplay for a Gourmet Food Truck revolution that we all happen to be a part of. From that show, two contestants definitely got some great trickle down effect, spending many hours on the road together, competing, eating and forming friendships. One was the Nom Nom Truck, the consistent favorite throughout the competition, while the other was a rag-tag group of burger-making badasses, The Grill ‘Em All Truck, who consistently faced elimination but ended up edging out everybody to become the champions by the end of the season.
Prefaced enough for you? With these two trucks appearing side-by-side at various events since their appearance on the show, there was bound to be some unofficial mashups from some hungry fans of both trucks. In this case, we’re looking at a recipe from our new friends at the Burger Conquest blog, who have paired the ingredients and menu items from both trucks to create a super burger: THE BANHEMOTH BURGER.
Seven prominent food trucks entered the race, only one made it out the other end as the winner. With $50,000 on the line, this Food Network show kept us on our toes for seven weeks! For the first six weeks, the Nom Nom Truck led the way dominating the challenges, leading us to believe they would capture the goal on The Great Food Truck Race. It wasn’t until the final week that we saw the scruffy, lovable and crazy grillers from the Grill Em’ All Truck get a final push in sales and take home the coveted $50,000 prize money! Congratulations boys!
