I was just wondering if anyone out there had a decent bratwurst recipie. The wife makes amazing pretzel buns for our burgers and sausages but I was wanting to do something that would blow her mind.

Best brat recipe I use comes from Cooks Illustrated.  Unfortunately, requires a subscription to their site.

Here's one I like. It's a variation of a recipe from a forum member named Nepas. I changed a couple things to suit my taste. The nutmeg and ginger give it a really nice "bratwursty" flavor. Most recipes call for marjoram and mace, but I like this better.


5 lb pork shoulder or butt

3/4lb fat back, as the pork I got was pretty lean.

1 cup powdered milk.

2.5 T kosher salt

1.5 T rubbed sage

1 TB black pepper

1/2t ground ginger

1/4t nutmeg

1/4 t ground celery seed

3/4 cup ice cold distilled water

Hog casing
