There are big grills, and there are BIG GRILLS. With more than 7 square feet of grilling surface, the Ranch Kettle by Weber is a big grill. On the other hand, any grill that is more than 60 feet long and requires a tractor trailer to pull it around is a BIG GRILL. The Johnsonville Big Taste Grill is a perfect example.
The Johnsonville folks rolled into Manhattan Beach a couple weeks ago for the American Volleyball Professionals (AVP) Manhattan Beach Open. Located at the corner of Valley and Manhattan Beach Blvd, the truck and trailer-turned-grill took up most of the Vons parking lot.
The “grill”, modeled after a barrel cooker, was fully equipped to handle just about any grilling challenge you could imagine. With several cooking surfaces, built in refrigerators, and even a kitchen sink, there’s probably no cooking challenge that this grill couldn’t handle.
I must admit; I have a little bit of grill envy.
