Brats and Beer Repost

Here is a repost from a coupe of years ago. This will be dinner tonight, along with fried potatoes.

I guess that I am just missing an old freind.

With all this talk about brats recently, I picked up a bunch to serve at my little weekend party. I was unaware of Char-Woody's "firecracker" brat post and found a recipe I had clipped from the local newspaper a year or so ago. Went something like this. Pierce the brats a couple of times with a fork as you would potatoes before baking them. Coarsely chop up a couple of large onions and sauté in oil. I used a large cast iron skillet. When the onions start to brown add a large can of sauerkraut, liquid and all, to the skillet and throw in the brats. Add enough beer (I used PBR of course) to provide a depth about half way up the sides of the brats. Do a splash or 2 or 3 of Tabasco sauce, more if you dare. The recipe stated that the desired effect was flavor and not heat. Slowly simmer for about 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally, and the brats will be fully cooked and will have plumped up nicely. Now grill them to char up the outside. Drain the onion/kraut mixture and use as toppings on the brat rolls. Serve with course ground mustard. Yum, yum

    Hey Mike we also miss Kenny.


  • Beer brats are great and easy, good for tailgates. I like a dark beer for them. Amberbock has worked well, and now that I have been drinking Shiner more I'll probably give it a run soon.

    direct 325-350, you are looking to crisp up and put a slight char on the outside. The Brats are pretty much cooked by the time they meet the BGE.

    Hope this helps,
  • I think we all miss KennyG, Brats sound good tonight.

    I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Kenny but a lot of nice people have said great things about him. I'll add this along side his chili recipe.
