About Us

We are The Sizzling Stick (Satay Redefined).  The Sizzling Stick is a food truck based in Edmonton, Alberta serving very tasty satay.

What is satay?

Satay (/ˈsæt/, /ˈsɑːt/ sah-tay), modern Indonesian and Malay spelling of sate, is a dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat, served with a sauce.[1] Satay may consist of diced or sliced chicken, goat, mutton, beef, pork, fish, other meats; the more authentic version uses skewers from the midrib of the coconut palm frond, although bamboo skewers are often used. These are grilled or barbecued over a wood or charcoal fire, then served with various spicy seasonings

In Singapore/Malaysia, satay is a popular dish.  It is often served with a peanut sauce along with pieces of cucumber, onion, pineapple and rice.

Our Mission

We want to bring flavourful freshly cooked satay with bright vibrant flavours to our customers.  A delicious peanut sauce that perfectly compliments the satay will be available as well.  This will be accompanied by equally tasty sides – including coconut rice and achar.

Nick
[Dr. Sizzle]

Doctor by training but a cook at heart.  Nick wants to bring something new to the Edmonton food truck scene – something from his roots – satay.  The tasty meat on a stick is something Nick loved growing up and he is hoping to share this with others through The Sizzling Stick.

Rosalind
[Expert on All Things Sweet]

The dentist with a sweet tooth.  If The Sizzling Stick has something sweet – you can be sure that Rosalind had something to do with it.  Our cool ordering window at the front of the truck was dreamed up by her – so multi-talented.

Steve
[Professional Satay Engineer]

A mechanical engineer professionally, he has chosen to apply those skills to helping you get the freshest, tastiest and juiciest satay around.  Out of his gifted mind comes the magical grilling machine.  You can thank him for the sizzling satay that is almost too hot to eat right away (told you it was fresh).  Anything mechanical will have Steve’s creative fingerprints all over it.

Recipe Testing

We intend for our food to be excellent, which is why we’ve played with cooking times, cooking temperatures, and different meats and their shapes in order to bring you the perfect meat on a stick. Here are some photos from our testing days:

We believe we’ve got it down to a science, and we’re excited for you to try it out!

Building the Grilling Machine (The Sizzle was Born)

 Steve, one of our partners, has spent the last year designing, creating, and perfecting the grilling machine that will be used in the truck to cook your satays from the ground up (how cool is that?!). Check out the photos below for the grilling machine in-progress:

Extreme Makeover: Truck Edition

Our story:

We started with a Snap-on truck…

thumb_IMG_2159_1024


Then we cut some holes in it…

thumb_IMG_2329_1024


Then we made sure it was up to spec, with ventilation…

thumb_IMG_2330_1024


…and food-making goodies! (can you spot Steve?)

thumb_IMG_2334_1024 thumb_IMG_2331_1024 thumb_IMG_2332_1024 thumb_IMG_2333_1024


Then we stripped her bare…

And wrapped her up!

We can’t wait to share our food with you!

Food Factory

Our team travels down to the Leduc Food Processing and Development Centre (FPDC) to prepare our satay, well before it hits the truck! This is where we put the sizzle on the stick.  The facility is CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) certified so our satay is made to the highest standards.

From meat that we cut up…

Our Apps

Some food truck ‘foodies’ are there for the food more than for our magnetic personalities. Apparently, standing a long time in a line with people you’ve never seen before while searching your pockets for cash to pay does not appeal to everyone. But that’s ok, we just want to feed you.

If you want things easier, have we got a game-changer! One of our partners, David, is developing a Sizzling Stick app for iPhone and Android users, which will allow you to keep up in real time with where the truck is located at during service hours, order directly from the app and skip the line, as well as possibly find some secret, special offers!

Click your respective logo to go to the App Store/Play Store and …

see how the apps aren’t ready yet.

(If you own an iPhone, your wait is almost over.  Whereas for Androids … you’re going to have to talk to David about that.  Hopefully it will be done soon.)


In the meantime, check out some of our app screenshots!

We know staying connected is important to you–that’s why we worked hard to find ways to let you follow us, without literally needing to run behind the truck.
