    Has anyone ever tried grilling brats wrapped in bacon? not flattened brats, but whole brats to be put in hot dog buns.. ive been thinking this over and really want to try it...

    my questions.. do i cook the bacon first then wrap the brats? do i wrap both uncooked and throw it on the grill? 

    what do you guys think?

    I might try cooking the brats a bit, then wrapping in bacon, then throwing back on grill and letting them finish off until bacon is crisp.

    I'm just not a big fan of chewy or underdone brats

    Sounds good to me too! Anything wrapped in bacon has got to be good!

    Sounds like it might be worth a try.  Be sure to check the internal temp on the brats to be sure they are done. It will be interesting to see if the skin on the brats comes out tough.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I think grilling them wouldn't work, smoking them low and slow now your talking.

    Two things you can add to "almost" anything and make it taste better.......Bacon and Cheese!

    I would maybe pull the skin off the brat, then wrap the bacon and smoke away.  (Grilling wouldn't get both done at the same time)

    I say go for it!

    I would smoke them with thin cut bacon then finish on a hot grill. A little more work but so worth it.

    Yep, what cowgirl said. I always parboil my brats in beer before grilling. Have fun!
