Brats Stopping at Mariano’s
The Johnsonville Big Taste Grill — the world’s largest touring grill — will be rolling into Mariano’s Fresh Market Saturday, Aug. 13, at the Northwest Highway store in Arlington Heights and Sunday, Aug. 14, for the Vernon Hills Grand Opening on Milwaukee Avenue. Brat proceeds will benefit the Elk Grove Village Rotary Club.
The semi-truck-sized grill weighs in at 53,000 pounds and measures 65 feet long, 20 feet high and six feet in diameter. It has the ability to hold up to 10 grillers, preparing 750 brats at a time — that’s 2,500 brats an hour.
