Directions

  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 at least 3 easily and that says a lot! Great recipe! I followed the recipe and did not change a thing. The spiciness was very good. I may take it up a notch when I serve it to my guests who happen to like spicy food. Just an f.y.i. though... without the sauce it isn't very hot for those who may not like heat. Thank you Zach!

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 beer and 1/2 to 1 stick of butter, thin sliced onion, salt, pepper and other seasonings to taste. Heat on the grill in foil pan. More or less beer depending on pan size, # of brats and thurst of the cook! Put brats in beer sauce and let simmer. Brats will stay juicy and flavorful for 2-3 hours. great for picnics, ball games, camping, etc...

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. They were the most delicious brats we have ever served!! This is the first year I have made them for our party, (6th year in a row, always doing brats for super bowl) and everyone RAVED! I was so happy and my husband so proud! I will nover make brats any other way!
