Was much warmer than expected so I decided to grill some brat burgers to test my thuringer style brat recipe. Approx 1Kg pork butt and a single grind through medium plate. Mix was based on Marianaski's with added NFDM and a little MSG. https://www.meatsandsausages.com/sausage-recipes/fresh/german/thuringer-rostbratwurst

Turned out well but might dial the whole caraway down a bit. A little blurry but absolutely ecstatic I remembered to take a money shot, I usually forget! Might try some thinly sliced onion on some leftovers...

I think I would like that recipe, cause we like the flavor of caraway seeds.
And your Pattie’s really look good!
Nice job!

Great looking burgers. A cold beer and a couple of those and this fat boy would be set.

THANKS. We like caraway too. I am my own worst critic... Wish the buns were homemade like your wife makes!

Looks tasty. I like the concept of not adding a bunch of stuff first time out so you get the full impact of the burger without the flavor being muddied up with a ton of stuff. Now you can decide what, if anything, you want to put on the burgers next time.

THANKS. Totally agree. A good burger should shine mostly on it's own. On that note, this brat tastes NOTHING like midwest/Johnsonville brats. VERY happy I gave it a try.
 
Looks great from here! thats one of my favorites. Like Al, I love the caraway too.
THANKS. First time for me but not the last time that's for sure. Gotta stuff some!

Man that shot of the grilled up patties looks amazing. Nice work bud
THANKS. That's my favorite shot too.

I'm with Jake! Those patties look great! Great grill marks!
Ryan
THANKS. Not as sexy as a Weber and charcoal but the old gasser just works.

Damn those look good. Nice work man!
THANKS

That's one fine looking piece of work right there, Like! I like to boil up my brats when linked in beer and onions right before grilling them. I'd think some thin sliced onion would go just fine, maybe even some caramelized onions, put some on most every burger I make. RAY

THANKS. Love me some onions but agree with Robert tx smoker tx smoker I wanted it mostly straight up at least the first time around.

I got to agreee with Jake and Ryan. Those grill marks...mmmmm! Nice work.

THANKS. We're big fans of a good hard sear. You should see how my wife likes her hot dogs! :emoji_laughing:
