"World's Largest Touring Grill" cooking to benefit Old Orchard Beach fire department

OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- "The World's Largest Touring Grill"-- the Johnsonville Big Taste Grill is cooking for guests of the resort damaged by a freight train fire back in May.

"We will be donating a percentage of the proceeds to the local Old Orchard Beach Fire Department who will be in attendance as well," said Brian Kuchenbecker with the Wagon Wheel RV Resort and Campground.

Johnsonville Big Taste Grill is a semi-truck sized grill weighing 53,000 lbs. and measuring 65 ft. long.

When the entire grill is fired up, it prepares 750 brats -- or around 2,500 brats an hour.

Wednesday, grill masters are cooking for the brat eating contest happening around 5:30 at the Wagon Wheel Resort in OOB. The resort is open to the public, serving $1 brats, from 5 to 9 o'clock.

The grill has visited a number of major events including NASCAR's Daytona 500, the Kentucky Derby, and the Pentagon.
