This is so easy that it's almost a crime. Ever hear the word 'Bratwurst' and think "oh no! a greasy, spiced, tube on a bun!" Not anymore. You've been doing it all wrong and its so easy to fix. This method prepares the Brats for the grill - keeps the brats moist and flavorful but, not greasy and prevents the skins/casings from splitting.
take one beer, pour into a sauce pan/pot and add in Brats (5 brats for every 8 oz of beer or so) Add just enough beer to cover the brats - bring beer to a medium-high boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered a good 15 minutes before transferring to grill to finish up cooking and charring.
Amen to Wisconsin for Beer & Brats!! Everyone knows they go hand-in-hand! or Hand to Mouth?!
