One of our most popular brats - they have a sweet heat and a cheddar background - one bite and you'll be hooked! These links are made with pasture-raised pork and only the freshest ingredients.
The Preparation -
We suggest starting out sausages on low heat, then crisping them up at the end. The indirect cooking method will prevent the natural casing from exploding and drying out your sausage. Bratwurst also braise really well in beer. Fill up a pot with beer, bring to a simmer and cook until the Brats float. Once they're cooked, char them up in a skillet or on the grill. This is a great way to feed a crowd, you can keep the sausages in a warm beer bath until people are ready to eat, then just char them on the grill.
The Location -
We grab our sausage from a number of different places on the hog. The first off is "trim" - which is a term used for the trimmings on more select cuts like chops and bacon. After that we grab some fat from the hogs back - and then add in shoulder, picnic, ham, cheek, and shank!
