Beer Bathed Brats

Yields6 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time25 mins

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...

 6 bratwurst
 24oz beer of your choice
 6 hoagie rolls
 toppings of your choice

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
