Going smoked is the best way to prepare beer brats! A few ingredients, a few beers, and a few hours will make the best brats you’ve ever tasted. We enjoy our brats with Amber ales best.



6-8 German brats uncooked

3 tbsp brown sugar

8 oz salted butter (cut into 8 pieces)

1 sweet onion chopped into thick slices

1 bottle amber ale 650ml (22oz)


-Preheat the grill to 121°C(250°F).

-In a large cast iron pan, add in thick onion slices, brown sugar, butter, and 6-8 German bratwurst sausages evenly spread out.

-Pour a 650ml Amber Ale into the cast iron pan to fill it up around 80% of the way. You want it to cover most of the sausages.

-Place the pan into your smoker at 121°C(250°F) for approximately 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

-Once finished, we prefer it on a bun with added sauerkraut, beer battered onions, and bit of spicy mustard on top.
