Decided to throw some brats on the smoker tonight while I was makin Chili Rellenos, found room for a fatty too...imagine that cool.gificon_lol.gif

Did nothing to them, 225 for 2 hours.

did you find the casing kept out the smoke flavor? I did some brats and was not impressed. They were good but the not much smoke flavor added. I pulled the casing off the next batch. They were better but were dryer.
I think if I would have simmered them in beer and onions after smoking them like you are supposed to they would have been better

soak or simmer them before smoking & they take the smoke better(as it opens up the pores in the casing).plus fresh butcher's bratts work a whole lot better than commercial(johnstonville) bratts.

smoke flavor

Actually the smoke flavor is excellent. We left the casings on and did nothing to them. I had read several posts going either way so wasn't sure what would happen. I wish I could tell you what kind they were but I buy everything in bulk so that means they were cheapos from Costco....no clue. They were very juicy.

WD, I haven't tried others for brats. We've got a german sausage place here, but I don't get by there often. As a rule, I grab the Johnsonville, and they work great for me.

Yum! I've done hotdogs, I guess brats are next. Thanks for the idea!

Take care, have fun, and do good!

I don't like casings I peal my off before I smoke, but I use colegen castings they come off easy.
