GRILL TIPS & RECIPES

How to Grill Brats in 5 Steps

1. Charcoal or Gas grilling works great. If you do charcoal, we suggest briquettes over hardwood charcoal as hardwood charcoal burns too hot for bratwurst.

2. Soak bratwurst in COLD water for 5-7 mins prior to cooking. This will make the casing more pliable and reduce breakage.

3. With good medium heat, gently lay the brats on the clean hot grate. NOTE: Use a water spray bottle for lightly dousing flames if needed. A fire too hot will split the casing which will make the brat lose flavorful juices.

4. Turn and rotate the Brats often on the grill. Brat’s only take total of 7-8 mins to fully cook.

5. To check if the brats are completed, slice one open and check inside to be sure it is not raw. Internal temperature should be 160 degrees.

6. BONUS: if you are not consuming the brats right after cooking, consider the Sheboygan classic brat “hot tub.” Put finished brats in a dish filled with ¼ stick of butter, 2 bottles of beer and 1 slice large onion, have it simmer on low heat.
