What's this?

Whether you've got German roots or not, everyone loves a good brat. Smoked bratwurst seared and tucked between a solid bun, topped with sauerkraut and homemade mustard.

Ingredients

  • 4 bratwurst

  • 1/2 Cup brown and yellow mustard seeds

  • 1 Cup cold beer

  • 3 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • Pinch salt

  • 4 hot dog buns

  • sauerkraut, for serving

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Place the bratwurst on the grill and smoke for 1 hour.
  • 3

    While the brats are smoking, pulse the mustard seeds in a spice grinder until ground into a coarse powder. In a small bowl, combine mustard seeds with beer, vinegar and salt. Mix well and set aside. Don't worry if it starts out a little runny, the mustard seeds will absorb moisture as they sit.
  • 4

    Pull the brats off the grill after 1 hour and increase Traeger temperature to 500℉. Allow to preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 5

    Place brats back on the grill and cook until internal temperature reaches 160°F.

    To build, place the brats in the buns and top with mustard and sauerkraut. Enjoy!
