Kyle is an Oklahoma based driver with 6 years of driving experience.
"He is super excited to be returning this year to drive the Big Taste Grill. One of his favorite parts about the tour is that he loves to travel the country sharing Johnsonville products with all the great people he meets. Kyle is looking forward to meeting even more people along the way this year, so don't be a stranger if you cross paths with the Big Taste Grill! In his free time, you can find Kyle on a golf course or hiking on a trail somewhere."
As the Grill makes its way across the country, be sure you give Kyle a honk or a wave!
Kris joins the Big Taste Grill team with enthusiasm and experience. He brings his international flavors as an experienced chef to the Big Taste Grill. A few interesting tidbits about Kris: he served in the United States Navy, he loves learning new languages, meeting new people, and sharing a meal with strangers.
"Food is such a unifier. I've been around the world, fed and have been fed by complete strangers. Nothing nourishes my soul more than creating a dish, and making friends over food. I am honored to join the prestigious ranks of Johnsonville Grillmasters. I truly believe in the Johnsonville Way and can't wait to bring joy to those we encounter on our travels."
When Kris isn't in the kitchen or behind the grill, you'll find him exploring national parks, brewing cider or gaming. If you do find him behind the grill, chances are he's making his signature "Smoked Scotch Eggs" using Johnsonville all-natural hot Italian sausage.
