Johnsonville rolls into town with ‘Big Taste Grill’ for Kiwanis Brat Days


Johnsonville Sausage Company rolled into town with a super-sized, “Big Taste Grill” on Thursday, ahead of this weekend’s Alpine Kiwanis Club’s Brat Days.

The grill weighs more than 53,000 pounds and is 65-feet long, and can cook more than 700 brats at one time at a rate of about 2,500 per hour.

Grillmaster Jay Whetsel travels with the grill, helping charities along the way.

“The great thing that we do with Johnsonville is that it’s all about giving and grilling up good will,” Whetsel said. “So, we grill up some brats and we usually turn over some of the proceeds, or all of the proceeds, for the brat sales that weekend, to the charity we’ll be working with.”

Alpine Kiwanis Brat Days runs Friday, June 20th to Saturday, June 21st.
