  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. When hot, lightly oil grate.
  2. Combine the beer and onions in a large pot; bring to a boil. Submerge the bratwurst in the beer; add the red pepper flakes, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to medium and cook another 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the bratwurst from the beer mixture; reduce heat to low, and continue cooking the onions.
  3. Cook the bratwurst on the preheated grill, turning once, 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with the beer mixture as a topping or side.

I made this as a try out run to see if I'd want to serve it for guests this weekend. I halved the recipe since it was for just 3 of us. It was all gone and I only had one. I could have eaten ...

Why boil out the flavor? Try this, low and slow on the grill (I prefer charcoal or wood chunks), indirect heat is best for about 30-45 minutes. While the brats are cooking take 3-4 cans of bee...

I used this recipe to feed a very large group of patrons at my husbands bar/resturant for super bowl Sunday and let me tell you, Holy Cow. I prepared a total of 100 brats, following this recipe....

Perfect! We pricked the brats a bunch of times with a fork to allow the beer and seasoning to really soak in. And instead of hovering over a hot stove, we let them simmer in the crockpot for a...

I have used this for small and large parties. It has also become the recipie for my son's Boy Scoup Troop's court of honor. I just cooked 72 brats for the troop and they turned out great. Onl...

This was good, but the beer flavor was not quite as strong as I'd hoped. Next time, I will try a stronger beer, like Guiness, and cook it on the stove for a longer time to really give it time to...

We loved these. Bought store brand brats, boiled in beer and grilled until nice, dark grill marks appeared. Served with corn on the cob. Perfect summer meal!

I am brat lover...grew up eating them. In my opinion the best way to preserve the flavor is NOT to par boil them. Grill slowly and then place in beer mixture and soak slowly on low heat as long...

Good but we could not really tell a difference from how I usually make mine which is boiling them in beer before transfering them to the grill. Still good though.
