The countdown to Sunday's big game continues and as such we are turning to the sausage experts at Johnsonville to share the secret to perfect game day bratwurst -- the beer hot tub. By placing the grill brats in a warm mixture of beer, butter, and onions, you are not only ensuring that they remain moist for your guests but also soak up a whole lot of extra flavor!
BRATWURST HOT TUB
1 large (11-inch x 9-inch x 2 3/8-inch) aluminum foil baking pan
2 to 3 cans (12 ounces each) beer
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium yellow or white onion, sliced
Put the pan right on the grill, being careful not to singe your knuckle hair. Pour in the beer, and add the butter and onions.
Grill your Johnsonville Brats to a juicy, golden-brown perfection.
Serve immediately to your hungry guests and place any remaining brats into the steaming hot tub.
When folks are ready for seconds or thirds--or when stragglers show up late - grab a Johnsonville Brat out of the hot tub and enjoy!
