Meet Deb, May's Grillmaster!

About Deb

Deb currently lives in Arizona, but she’s travelled around for a good part of her life. From stateside adventures in Ohio, Nebraska, Kansas, California and Nevada, to stints in England, Germany and Japan, Deb has seen and experienced some of history’s most notorious events. Deb enjoys camping, picnicking, and having poolside barbecues with friends and family. Whatever her menu calls for, Johnsonville always has a spot at the table.

Why Deb Is Our Enthusiast of the Month

Deb knows what great sausages taste like. With her father in the military, Deb spent 20 years in Europe and spent half that time in Germany. At a very young age, Deb learned about the delicious flavors of authentic German food. When she discovered Johnsonville Sausages, she knew she found something special.


Deb loves to cook with the authentic flavors of Johnsonville. She uses Johnsonville Italian Sausage because “it tastes the closest to the flavor of sausage I had when I was in Italy.” Deb’s favorite things about Johnsonville sausage are “the texture of the casing and the seasonings which gives the sausages an authentic taste.” Deb’s new Johnsonville favorite is the breakfast sausage. Deb says, “Recently I got to try some Johnsonville breakfast links. Wow, what an incredible, perfectly seasoned flavor without all that extra gushy fat that most breakfast sausages have!”

“I was blown away by the great texture and flavor... I told everyone I knew that this was how brats taste in Germany.”

Deb’s Favorite Johnsonville Moment

Deb’s first Johnsonville Brat was love at first bite. “The very first time I had Johnsonville Original Brats with sauerkraut, I was blown away by the great texture and flavor! The memories of Germany came flooding back....and my taste buds were finally satisfied that I could find a great brat, outside of going to a fancy deli or specialty shop.  I told everyone I knew that this was how brats taste in Germany.”
