If you’ve ever been to the Guthrie Green for lunch during Food Truck Wednesday, you know the flurry of activity around the huge selection of food trucks that abounds. Scattered among the trucks, food cart vendors are ready for business, too, and The Wurst is easily among the best. In 2011, Lyndsi Baggett, along with her two business partners – her fiancé and her brother – built a mobile food cart out of a trailer. A Tulsa native who has lived in New York City and Austin, Texas, Baggett is back home grilling delicious beer-and-butter-soaked bratwurst served with onions, curry ketchup, spicy mustard and sauerkraut wherever she can haul her cart.
“Currently, we have a regular white brat, a cheese-filled brat and also a spicy brat,” she says. “Eventually, we plan on making our own buns, too.”
The brats are from Siegi’s Sausage Factory in Tulsa, but Baggett has plans to produce The Wurst’s own specialty sausages. And to really drive home the local angle, the beer she uses to marinate her brats is from Oklahoma’s Mustang Brewing Company. In addition to the Guthrie Green, Baggett and The Wurst can often be found parked outside of Sound Pony and Cain’s Ballroom in the Brady Arts District on concert nights.
