That's One Big-Ass Grill

comment
Just a few weeks ago, Memphians were treated to hundreds of grills of all shapes and sizes at the Memphis in Memphis Barbecue Festival.

Well, none of those can hold a candle to the Johnsonville Big Taste Grill. This rig — so large that it has to be towed behind a semi-truck — will be visiting the Kroger store on 240 New Byhalia Road in Collierville on June 9th. Forget all those puny backyard grills you've filled with charcoal and sweated over while you flipped burgers. This thing weighs more than 53,000 pounds and can cook more than 2,500 hot dogs per hour. (No word on the burger-cooking rate — this is a hot-dog company, people.)
