- 5 brats
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 5 buns
- onions for serving
- sauerkraut for serving
- condiments as desired
Light charcoal and spread it evenly across one-half of the grill. If using propane, light burners only on one side of the grill.
Oil grates with paper towel soaked in vegetable oil to prevent sticking.
Place brats on grates directly over charcoal and grill on each side until browned. If the casing bursts or burns move brats further from the coals to reduce cooking temperature.
Cook brats for 15-20 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Cooked brats are firm to the touch.
Keep brats warm in a Brat Bath until ready to serve.
Serve on buns with onions, sauerkraut, and brat sauce.
