One method of cooking bratwurst we have seen has you actually steaming the brats in beer and then finishing on the grill. In our recipe we skip the initial steam bath and simply bathe the brats in beer while they are on the grill. GrillGrates are the only grilling surface that allows you to pull of this technique due to the unique flavor catching valleys between the raised rails.

Preheat grill to medium high


Remove brats from package and place on grill


Turn/roll occasionally allowing brats to gently brown


Bathe brats on grill with half of the beer about 10 minutes into the cook


When brats begin to split roll them split side up and pour more beer into the opening. Enjoy the aroma!


Cook for another 5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160F


Toast hoagie rolls lightly on grill while brats are finishing up


Finish brats with second half of beer. Brats should have the casing starting to break open and little geysers of brat juice should be spewing out


 6 bratwurst
 24oz beer of your choice
 6 hoagie rolls

    doesn’t the beer run out the holes in the grates?

  2. Chef Michael

    Some of the beer makes it past the grates but the vast majority evaporates.

    Sounds good, but I like to bathe my brats in beer. Pour beer into roasting pan and add grilled brats, (sautéed) peppers and onions
