CHARCOAL GRILLED BRATS
Not much of a story really. I was first introduced to this recipe by a longtime friend and very early Quad supporter, David Hesse, a Wisconsin native. These brats were love at first bite.
The need to include a brat recipe was reinforced when Eric Fenzl, also a Milwaukee native, came on board as our engineer.
12 Fresh Brats
12 Crusty Small Sub Rolls,
Sliced & Buttered
2 Large Yellow Onions
(1 Quartered, 1 Chopped)
2 Bottles of Beer
(Schlitz, the beer that made
Accompaniment & Sides
Great with a nice German coleslaw or hot German potato salad. Although Herr Hesse would disagree, I would serve Warsteiner Pilsner with the brats.
Full chimney of coal, hot fire, Quad with the grill in place. Do not use the dome.
3 hours before you’re ready to serve, place the fresh brats in a sauce pan.
Combine enough beer and water to cover brats in 2 inches of the mixture, then add the quartered onion to the pan with the brats.
Bring brats to a slight simmer for about 3 hours. Place simmered brats from the sauce pan directly to the Quad grill.
Grill the brats for 2-3 minutes, or until they have a nice char.
Place the buttered sub rolls face down on the Quad grill and lightly toast.
Serve the brat on a toasted roll.
Assorted mustards, chopped onions, jalapeños, relish, and ketchup.
