Traeger's Brats in a Beer Bath

Posted by Susie B. on June 7, 2013

Brats in a Beer Bath

We love brats. We love beer. This recipe is the love child of those two ingredients and boy, is it delicious! This recipe is perfect for having company over or tailgating because the brats can linger for a long time in their hot beer bath while you prep your other dishes.


Brats in a Beer Bath (from Traeger's Everyday Cookbook)


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25-30 minutes, plus 45 minutes to an hour in the beer bath
Serves: 10
Recommended Pellets: Hickory, Oak, or Pecan

3 to 4 12-ounce cans of beer (dark or light)
2 large onions, peeled and sliced into rings
2 tablespoons butter, plus extra for buttering the buns
10 brats, uncooked
10 brat or hoagie buns
Mustard for serving

Pour the beer into a saucepan. Add the onions and 2 tablespoons of butter. Bring to a simmer on the stovetop. 􀂄

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes. 􀂄 Put a deep disposable aluminum foil pan on one side of the Traeger. Carefully pour the beer and onions from the saucepan into the pan on the grill. Arrange the brats on the other side of the grill grate. Grill the brats until cooked through, turning frequently with tongs, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Transfer the brats to the beer bath and cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Let the brats simmer in the bath until the onions are tender, 45 minutes to an hour. 􀂄

Butter the cut sides of the buns and toast on the grill. To serve, lift a brat out of the bath and put it on a bun. Top it with onions and mustard, if desired. Enjoy!

I seldom comment, however i did a few searching and wound up here Team Traeger | Traeger's Brats in a Beer Bath. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Is it just me or does it look like a few of the comments appear as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

I don't know if it's just me or if everyone else encountering issues with your blog. It looks like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen before. Kudos

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

I believe what you published made a ton of sense. But, think on this, what if you wrote a catchier title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a post title to maybe get a person's attention? I mean Team Traeger | Traeger's Brats in a Beer Bath is kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create article titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

I have been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts in this sort of house . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site. Reading this info So i'm glad to show that I have a very just right uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most no doubt will make sure to do not put out of your mind this website and give it a glance regularly.

You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I find this topic to be really one thing that I think I might never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely broad for me. I am having a look ahead on your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the hold of it!

Building specifics include the nature of the establishment(s) it houses, the overall budget for its construction, and the level of interior décor it demands. Apartments are where just about all successful commercial real estate investors started out, so why try and fight the odds. Where single family homes generally start at a reasonable cost, an apartment building is a much larger investment, and thus is often too daunting or scary for the new real estate investor to even think about.
