Expert Tips

  • Purchasing cooked bratwurst will trim time. Omit step 1 and the first 6 minutes of grilling in step 2.
  • Add leftover pineapple juice to orange juice for a taste of the Tropics!
  • Is the store fresh out of fresh brats? Purchase frozen brats, and thaw in the refrigerator the night before.
