Going smoked is the best way to prepare beer brats! A few ingredients, a few beers, and a few hours will make the best brats you’ve ever tasted. We enjoy our brats with Amber ales best, so we hit up our friends at Oakshire Brewing for their award winning Amber Ale.
Amber Beer Brats
GMG Gold Pellets
1 Sweet Onion, thick slices
3 tbsp Brown Sugar
8 oz Salted Butter, in 8 pieces
6-8 German Brats, uncooked
22 oz Amber Ale
Preheat the grill to 250.
In a large cast iron pan, add in thick onion slices, brown sugar, butter, and 6-8 German bratwurst sausages evenly spread out.
Pour a 22oz Amber Ale in the cast iron pan to fill it up around 80% of the way. You want it to cover most of the sausages.
Once finished, we prefer it on a bun with added sauerkraut, beer battered onions, and bit of spicy mustard on top.
