Been lurking around here a long time, thanks for all the tips and tricks.

Made some brats from my Rytek Kutas book. I didn't use veal, I just used a 10 lb butt. They always turn out great that way, IMO..

And used dry milk for the binder. Only other thing I did is shred a pound of of cheddar and mixed in. Cheddar makes everything Better!!! :)

When they're almost done, I throw them in a sauerkraut foil pouch and let 'em steam for a bit..

oh my goodness...oh my goodness.

Oh, the kids insisted on some grilled hot wings too, little Franks and butter on those...

Well, thanks for looking. 

Thanks for the Pic upload help Al. :)

Jim, those brats look fantastic!  And yes, Cheddar does make every thing better, would like to have one of those one a steamed hot dog bun with some Dijon mustard, some onion, and some good home made chili.  They look like they would make a first class Southern Hot Dog or just a good sausage with kraut!  They also look good just as they are, especially with the Cheddar inside! Keep up the good work and keep smokin!

Your SMF Friend,

Barry

Excellent looking brats.  I've been wanting to try that recipe and since looking at yours, the time is getting closer.

I've mixed them with jalapenos before, but never tried bacon..

That sounds pretty darn good actually, will try that with next batch!

I know I am late to the game, but how do you mange to cut the brats into individual links? That is always the part I have the hardest time with. I usually just leave 4 or 5 connected together and cook them up at once.
