How to Grill Perfect Beer Bratwurst

Beer Bratwurst on the grill

Everyone has their own secret recipe perfect bratwurst. Not being from Wisconsin, I can not tell if this recipe is perfect. What I can tell you, this recipe is very tasty bratrurst created for me. I have heard people say that a large arbitrary secret is to cook them first in beer (really? Yeah, no kidding?), Or cook them slowly and make sure the fire is needed.

In my experience, the secret – just patience. How long of bratwurst grill, depending on how you grill them. You can throw them directly on the grill, which will take about 25-30 minutes, or boil brass in beer, wine or water for about 20 minutes. After boiling, they then grilled for 4-6 minutes. The first boil them in beer flavor improves so dramatically that almost a sin just throw them on the grill. Although the brothers need a little time to properly prepare. If you hurry, you can easily turn out to be a fool, who was burned on the outside, not the inside.

If not handled properly for a long time of preparation often burst thin skin Var & # 39; a madman, releasing all the glorious juices, causing parched happiness.

Due to the large number of German population of Wisconsin is known for its beer and quarrel. The Germans brought their recipes for sausages, if they are located throughout the area in 1800. One-third of Bratwurst is made from pork, although there are of bratwurst, and it's all beef or other meats. The choice of which brand brother cook, it's a personal choice. Johnsonville – a popular national brand, and as good as any, if you do not live around Wisconsin where you can find many delicious alternatives.
