HOMOSASSA - The Big Grill is coming to town.
The Johnsonville Big Taste Grill, all 53,000 pounds and 65 feet of it, will be at Publix, 3942 S Suncoast Blvd. (U.S. 19), from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 28.
On the menu: Johnsonville brats.
On the agenda: raising money for United Way.
The public is invited to visit, gawk, eat and donate.
The grill travels in its own semitrailer truck, according to a Johnsonville news release. "It is equipped with hot and cold running water, a prep station and a refrigeration unit. The grill has the capacity to cook more than 750 brats at a time - approximately 2,500 per hour - and can accommodate more than 12 grillmasters," the release says.
It runs on liquid propane and can be lit with the flick of a switch.
Johnsonville, based in Sheboygan, Wis., created the grill in 1995 to commemorate the company's 50th anniversary. Johnsonville hauls it to a variety of charity events nationwide. The grill has helped raise more than $2-million for charities.
