    Going to grill some up today and wanted to try a new recipe. Nothing too complicated since the main meal is buffalo shrimp over pasta.

    while grilling them have a pan with beer in it on the grill, when they are done put them in the beer for awhile. YUM!

    I boil them in beer and onion for about 20 minutes and then grill up just a bit to make them crispy. I do it with the Italian sausage as well.

    How can anyone eat before a game like this without throwing up?

    I like to cook them until they are almost done. While they are cooking, put one of those disposable aluminum casserole trays on the grille and into it melt 1 stick of butter. Add one onion cut into slices and let it saute until the onions are soft. Pour in a can of your favorite beer.

    Once the brats are nearly done, move them into the pan and let them simmer for a couple of beers (my preferred time measurement). Some people like them right out of the pan, although I prefer to put mine back onto the grille to get them a little crispy.

    Note: When cooking brats on the grille, NEVER pierce the skin. Always turn them or flip them with tongs. If you pierce them while cooking it lets all of the juices out. Occassionally I have pierced them before putting them into the beer bath to let the flavor in, but never until I was just ready to do so.

    Man, I'm one of those people who eat when they are nervous or upset. Or practically any other time, too. :)

    This one kicks ass!!!!! Only I grill them first them boil them. Instead of grilling peppers and onions separate just cut em up and through em into the beer and boil with the brats.

    This is THE ONLY WAY to cook brats or sausages. Tried many different ways, but none have come close to this.

    Put brats on grill. Pour beer on while cooking. Enjoy.
