Tongsman

“All one needs on a Saturday is fine sausage, an icebox full of good beer and a hand-forged pair of grilling tongs.”

— Grover Cleveland

Welcome Tongsmen. We see you. We smell you. You have heeded The Call of the Tongsman and so here, we heed you. As a Tongsman, the proudest of the proud carnivores, you never forget sausage. And for that, Johnsonville owes you plenty. Starting with this, a woefully incomplete reservior of Tongsman truths and half-truth. We merely hope that you find this additional sau-sage wisdom herein affirming, if not downright useful.

Tongsmen Know Johnsonville. Do You?

SUBMISSION EXAMPLES

We’d never tell a Tongsman exactly how to be a Tongsman. They know.

However, perhaps some mad Tongsman skills are madder than others. For example:

          • Variety of Johnsonville sausages grilled at one time.

          • Tong tricks. It’s all in the feel. Show us your touch.

          • Sausage is ready. Now what? Do you go special platter? Toppings? What kind of bun? No bun?
