Y'all? I don't recall hearing that word in either Johnsonville or Sheboygan.

With all due respect, Rusty, Johnsonville doesn't make very good bratwurst. You need to get those from a small meat market anywhere in Wisconsin.

A bratwurst (German: [ˈbʁaːtvʊɐ̯st] ( listen)), also known as a brat in English, is a sausage usually composed of veal, pork or beef. The name is derived from Old High German Brätwurst, from brät-, which is finely chopped meat and Wurst, or sausage. Though the brat in bratwurst described the way the sausages are made, nowadays Germans associate it with the German verb “braten”, which means to pan fry or roast.[1] Bratwurst is usually grilled or pan fried, and sometimes cooked in broth or beer.

The first documented evidence of the Bratwurst in Germany dates back to 1313, and can be found in the Franconian city of Nuremberg,[2] which is still an internationally renowned centre for the production of grill sausages.

Great lesson RtE. I didn't know any of that. Today is not wasted. I can go back to bed now.

Barbequing or grilling over coal? Really? Never heard of that. Sounds nasty. Charcoal or wood coals yes. But coal? No thanks.

A brat ain't worth eating until it's had a good beer bath.
Johnsonville, my favorite, + darkest beer I can find, + boil for 15 min, + grill = best brats ever!:thumbs:

Plenty of German heritage in Texas, especially around New Braunfels and Muenster.
Yep and I'm one of them. Got German and Irish in my blood. Probably why I like beer and a good fight so much :lol:

All due props to Rob - he meant nothing more by his contribution than the facts he presented. As pointed out - many of the German heritage ended up in TX also. I just always remember some of the best brats coming from small meat shops with a similar heritage in the grand state of Wisconsin.

In the North East, Schaller & Weber and Karl Ehmer butcher shops still make the best Bratwurst. Either of these brands are great simply grilled.

When I only have access to grocery store Bratwurst, I can "save" them by pan frying with butter and onions plus the proper Musie.

All due props to RTE, but he has been known to cut and paste verbatim from the wikipedia entry on an item by item basis from time to time, without giving credit to the source.

Being from Wisconsin old heritage, I'm somewhat partial to the Usinger brand of bratwurst, and my wife makes a wonderful cheesy bratwurst stew that is to die for.
