I like that, all we are going to take 6 brats sell , and follow the package instruction with your Johnsonsville brat , they say it cook them indirectly, which is very important thing, because you don’t always want to split the casing before they heated through, we are going to quarter these because we want the sauce that we are going to make, to get in to the sausage, but strength them off, indirect , low heat because you don’t want them to burn and blister, nothing worse, then I burnt hot dog.
Sausage, you know burnt brat. What ever you cook and when it comes sausage just some dogs, take your time, don’t rush them, perfecting the hot dog in sausage, so you know the important part of your barbecue, if you can master that, then you can master anything. Lot of people, too high on the temperature, so you just leave him there. And keep an eye on, and now we are going to make our sauce that goes with this.
Take a little this is the just peachy sauce, so we need little Jack Daniel’s here, 1 ounce for in there, and half an ounce for the chef, oh that’s delicious, half of a cup of my peach and burbond barbecue sauce, absolutely delicious, and half a cup of my honey lager mustard and whisk that all together, so its nice and smooth corporated, lets have a look and what is going on over here. Just whirl them nicely like this, when you got the lively shade one the one side okay, and we are going to take our knife, and I am just going to score them half inch, on a buyers, little slashes, okay, and pop it up on the little top shelf, it’s like that. Whats amazing about this brat, its got this great flavor, high in flavor and are all already fully cooked, so you can take them on your picnic, make it for a quick and easy recipe that you can do, you right there with your kids going on a picnic, close the lid, and let them cook for about 2-3 minutes,

Just like that, close the lid let them heat up for about only 2 more minutes, and then we ready to serve, oh just take a peep, sauce is turning with all nice and sticky, that’s you what you want, they all are filled with sauce. Now we need a good one, but you don’t have to have the one, is good, onions and some tomatoes and pickles and sport peppers, little bit of shredded cheese, you dress your dogs and sausages and the brats the way you want to do it.
Take a bun, if you want toasted buns, you can toast the buns, put that in, and add couple of sport peppers, Lets turn on side there, few onions turn this side, to I want my red neck, al right so catch up and not a catch up guy, is like lots of onions, then we are going little actually add this peachy sauce, over top like that, and in there you have just peachy smoke Johnsonville brat Quick and easy, nice and simple.
