Pre-Autumn Brats

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Even though we've had an extraordinary summer here in the Seattle area, lately I have been feeling a little chill in the air in the early morning and late evenings. That makes me think about Autumn, and Autumn makes me think about brats. I greatly admire those on here that can do the job themselves, but I don't have the equipment or skill level to make bratwurst myself. Fortunately, I have a local butcher who does a very good job with them, so please don't flame me for my laziness.


I like to sauté some onion in a little butter, then add the brats and cover with a good quality beer and simmer. I usually use a German-style beer, but I only had Boddington's on hand. It'll do.

 

When cooked thru, they get transferred to the Weber to be browned.

 

Plated with a good German mustard and cooked onion.

 

Tasted wonderful!

Lots of us went the store bought route until we had the funds to make our own. No shame in that. The hard part is once you start you will rather do without then buy from the store again. You can get a pretty good Kitchener #12 Grinder and 5# Grizzly Stuffer for about $200...JJ

Yeah, I discovered that with bacon. Can't stand the store-bought stuff anymore.

Got the corn from a Kroger store. I think the variety is spelled, "Olathe"? Comes from Colorado, and it is very good. Our local corn should be ready soon, too. Then I'll make some of that Pit Boys Corn Chowder!
