Going picnicking or potlucking? Check in with the food truckers first

Food trucks and the people behind the wheels get some love in Wednesday's Food pages. The cover story is on successful picnic fare, and who better than these mobile maestros to tell us what sorts of foods travel well.

Gaztro-Wagon's Matt Maroni (above), perhaps the most enterprising of them all, shares a recipe for smoked pork shoulder, while Joaquin Soler gives up a version of the Thai-ish brisket he sells on his Brown Bag Lunch Truck.

For those looking at the print version of Soler's recipe, there is an error. The recipe calls for 2 cups brown sugar, but the correct amount should be 1/4 cup.

We also felt it prudent to include with the story a current list of trucks up and running, what they're serving and where you can find them. One more revision to the story: Food Truck Tuesdays, on the northwest corner of North and Halsted, has been extended to run through August.
