Football Tailgating Fans,

Are you looking for great Tailgating Food Ideas? Well, in the famous tradition of Tailgating from the “frozen tundra” of Green Bay, Wisconsin home of the World Champion Green Bay Packers, here is a Championship Recipe for “Grilled Brats”.

First and foremost you need a good German Style Bratwurst, and I strongly suggest the “best Bratwurst” I’ve found is from American Grass Fed Beef. With the “Brats” in hand here is what you do:

Take a good German Style Beer like “St. Pauli Girl”, enough to cover all the Brats.

Tip 1: Buy two six packs, 8 or 9 for the Brats and 3 or 4 to drink while you cook plus a whole stick of butter and put in a big pot and bring the mixture to a boil.

Tip 2: Don’t use a Beer that is to Stout, like a Guinness, because it will overpower the flavor of these great tasting Brats.

Take a 5 lbs. package of <a href=””>American Grass Fed Beef German Style Bratwurst</a> (20 links) and put them in the pot with the boiling Beer & Butter.

Bring the Brats to boil and simmer for 15 minutes. While the Brats are boiling fire up your grill.

Once the Brats have simmered for 15 minutes take them out of the Beer & Butter and place them on the grill. Grill them for 8 to 10 minutes, browning them evenly.

Once you have grilled the Brats then put them back in the hot Beer & Butter pot to keep them warm.

Now take a Hot Dog Bun and spread it with some Spicy Brown Mustard, take a Grilled Brat out of the Beer & Butter Pot, put in the Bun and cover it with a good German Style Sauerkraut.

Enjoy! I serve these at my Tailgate Parties down in the “Sunny South” at The Citadel Football Games in Charleston, SC. Everybody loves them and they want the recipe.

Tell them the secret is the great tasting German Style Bratwurst from American Grass Fed Beef.
