Great lesson RtE. I didn't know any of that. Today is not wasted. I can go back to bed now.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. 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, which is still an internationally renowned centre for the production of grill sausages.
Barbequing or grilling over coal? Really? Never heard of that. Sounds nasty. Charcoal or wood coals yes. But coal? No thanks.Picture says it all. I saw this at a food vendor stall at a car show on LI today. Its made form a real '57 Chevy. There is a coal burning grille in the hood and another in the trunk. Very cool!!!!
Plenty of German heritage in Texas, especially around New Braunfels and Muenster.That's a Texas sized grill Yall that's for sure but I didn't think Texans ate bratworst.
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:Plenty of German heritage in Texas, especially around New Braunfels and Muenster.
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.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.
