Bourbon, bratwurst, and Super Bowl. What more can you ask for? Well, besides your team winning, of course. Traditionally, grilled brats are nestled into a beer and onion bath until they are ready to serve. Our recipe steeps the uncooked brat in a warm bath before grilling, with the option of returning them to the liquid after. The reason for doing this is so the sausages can soak up as much bourbon flavor and aroma as possible. Fantastic! Get the recipe HERE.
