In the show, competitors try to outsell each other in various cities while getting hit with tough challenges. In one show, truck owners are forced to make food without propane to power their grills and cooktops.

The ultimate champion earns a $100,000 grand prize. (Last year, the prize — which went to Los Angeles-based Grill ‘Em All — was $50,000.)

Other trucks competing this year include Café Con Leche (Los Angeles), Devilicious (San Diego), Sky’s Gourmet Tacos (Los Angeles), Hodge Podge (Cleveland, Ohio), Roxy’s Grilled Cheese (Boston) and Korilla BBQ (New York).
