Grill 'Em All won the first season of The Food Network's “Great Food Truck Race,” edging out Nom Nom to grab a $50,000 grand prize. The truck's name is a play on Metallica's “Kill 'Em All” album and the logo has a heavy metal theme. Chef Ryan Harkins and ex-pro wrestler Matthew Chernus have been allies and bandmates for more than 20 years. Ryan's fine dining background and strong Midwestern roots left him hankering for a gourmet take on the hamburger, his all-time favorite food. Of his several seven-ounce burger creations, the Molly Hatchet (seared fennel sausage gravy, bacon, maple; $8), Witte (cream cheese, deep fried bacon, beer and Sriracha-soaked onion, malt vinegar aioli; $8) and Behemoth (grilled cheeses for buns, cheddar, bacon, beer soaked onions, pickles and Grandma's Mosh Pit BBQ Sauce; $12) are fan favorites. While a bit steep at six for $6, their handmade cheddar- and jack-filled tater tots, called “H-100s,” are worth every penny and come with a choice of delicious dipping sauces.
