1st cook on the LBGE - Bratwurst

Figured I would start with something easy and hard to screw up, gave me a chance to get comfortable with the temp control.

Smoked em for a little more than an hour, about 260 dome temp.

Turned out delicious, juicy, some good smoke flavor.

Up next, a pork shoulder I rubbed and froze when plans broke down couple weekends back.

    Looks great!  I whipped up some Publix brats last night.  They didn't impress me too much.   Yours look much better!  What brand were they?  Congrats on your new egg and welcome to the cult!  :D

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    Welcome. I do brats in a beer with some sliced sweet onions in a CI skillet. Get them going at about. 350 for about 30 minutes, until the beer burns off a little, then put them directly on the grate for a while. Bun and then carmelized onions on top with some good mustard.

    Welcome to the cult. I cook locally made brats a couple of times a month. Do 'em with beer. Great place to start the learning curve. Have a blast, you have a great grill to cook on. Look forward to reading your posts.

    I recently tried Brats and was disappointed. The quality of the meat was the problem. Finding good meat here is difficult as the nearest butcher shop is an hour drive away and the grocery stores here suck. Store bought Italian worked much better. I think this speaks to the obvious issue of meat quality first.
