The Big Taste Grill rides again! We’re revving up the Big Taste Grill to be part of your celebrations. We’re traveling to local events supporting great causes with great sausages. We’ll even be getting into the Brats-giving spirit and sharing samples of our new Sausage Strips. Stay tuned for more details and we hope to see you at the Big Taste Grill!
ABOUT THE GRILL
Providing more than just tasty tailgate sausages at special events and retail locations across the country, the Big Taste Grill also raises money for local charities. At each event, the Big Taste Grill partners with a non-profit organization to raise money for their cause through product sales.
To date, the Big Taste Grill program has raised more than $4 million for a variety of charities nationwide, many of them local community organizations. In 2018, we raised $100,000 for about 30 charities, and we also spent three weeks throughout North Carolina serving hot, grilled sausages for first responders, relief volunteers and victims after Hurricane Florence ripped through the south.
The Big Taste Grill is 20 feet tall, a whopping 65 feet long and 6 feet in diameter. Just to park it you need a space that is 20 feet by 90 feet!
The 6,000 pound lid with an 8-foot handle is opened using a hydraulic system, giving access to 440,000 BTUs, which is needed to grill the 1/2 ton of Johnsonville Sausages held in the onboard fridge
How many sausages can you eat? The Big Taste Grill can cook 2,500 sausages an hour or 750 sausages at a time on its 40 square feet of grilling surface. That’s enough to keep a festival satisfied for a while!
The Big Taste Grill sports hot and cold running water, a huge clean-up sink and a frosty cold refrigeration unit. Do you know any luxury cars that have that?
To give the chefs plenty of room to move about as they grill the flavorful sausage, the grill has a 4 foot aluminum walkway along its border.
