FLINT, MI — The owner of a food truck in Flint that serves up beef ribs is adamant that the eatery on wheels has the best in the city.
The Slab Masters, a food truck stationed at a vacant lot located at Carpenter Road and Dupont Street in Flint, keeps customers coming back for it’s main dish -- BBQ beef ribs.
Owner Tyree Upchurch, 41, said customers can expect great quality food when they patronize the business.
“They fall off the bone, the sauce, it just melts in your mouth. You can’t find none as tender, you can’t find any with as much meat as I have on them,” Upchurch said of the ribs.
The slab master prepares the rubs with a “master” sauce that offers a sweet and slightly tangy flavor with a kick of spice.
Upchurch comes from a family of cooks with his mother, who loves to cook and his father, who has mastered the grill.
“I learned my way around the grill from my father,” Upchurch said. “Got a lot of recipes from my father, from me taking my father’s recipes and putting my own spin and twist to them.”
The business owner acknowledged there’s a strong sense of camaraderie around food and the best BBQ recipes on his father’s side of the family whenever there’s a gathering.
The ribs, which are more of a beef tip as opposed to a beef bone, can be purchased per half pound for $8 or one pound for $15.
The ribs can be paired with fresh cut French fries for a “tip fry” meal that consists of fries topped with the beef tips and the “master” sauce.
Customers can purchase this meal for $10 or $15. Customers can also order a side of fries for a small size at $3 or $5 for a large.
Another hot seller is the carne asada fries. The meal is prepared with the fries as the base and then topped with chopped ribeye, cheese sour cream, verde sauce and green onions. The meal can be purchased for $10 or $15.
The food truck is open from 2:30 p.m.-9 p.m. seven days a week. To keep up with The Slab Masters, visit their Facebook page here.
