Grilled Brats Recipe

July 26th, 2010

Last evening we enjoyed a great dinner of grilled brats off the BBQ26S Meadow Creek Grill and our special topping of cooked peppers and onions. I like it so well, I just have to share it with you. So here are some pictures to start it off. The recipe is below.

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups sliced peppers
  • 2 cups sliced onions
  • Favorite barbecue rub
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 10 brats

Lay the brats on your grill grate and season them with your favorite rub. Grill the brats over direct heat until they are well browned on two sides.

Once the brats are cooking on the grill, put a skillet on the stovetop or an outdoor burner, such as your grill side burner. Brown the butter in the skillet, then add the peppers and onions. Stir these often to keep them from burning. After it cooks down add a liberal sprinkling of rub and the barbecue sauce. Mix it well.

Serve the grilled brats on hotdog buns or homemade bread with the topping and sliced cheese. You may also enjoy ketchup, mustard, and other condiments with your sandwiches.

Extremely easy and edible!

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

    I used my BBQ42 to put out 60 brats at one time at an event a couple of weeks ago. The double sided grates are the only reason I even thought about doing so many at one time. I truly don’t think turning this amount would have been possible without contracting Carpel-Tunnel syndrome in the process. The brats turned out wonderful and were cooked to perfection! Marlin had told me this was a “chicken cooking machine”, but it is really an all-around BBQ delight!

    Hey Lavern

    This recipe sounds good. We are in Germany eat a lot of Brats. We have a lot of different kind of Brats, but we eat it without anything or only with sauerkraut.

    Nexttime I will make it.

    Do you ever boil the brats in beer prior to grilling?????


    Lavern Reply:

    No, have you?


    Dave Reply:

    Yes, with butter and onions, it takes less time to grill them and it keeps them moist. You can also keep them in the beer after they are done grilling if you need to cook more or need the gril for something else.

    I boil mine in beer for about 30 minutes…then drain…fill pan with a good maple syrup…bring to a boil let simmer for about 30 minutes or so…drain and head to the grill….the best brats you’ll ever eat!!!
