Amazing content again. I cannot wait to try this. Tortillas as a hatch green chile ranch always goes good on brats. Prost!

Holy crap that looks good. Jalapeño mustard, first I've heard of that, I'm off to buy some.

Oh great…now I have to make my own brats?! Haha! Aside from my lame store-bought brats, this is the exact recipe I use. Right down to the Fat Tire & onion braise. Love it! Go Chef Tom, kill that Fat Tire. One of my favorite beers. To anyone that has not had brats this way it will be hands-down the best you've ever had. Excellent video.

Brilliant! I love the.fact you're exploring new cuisines Tom – and avoiding becoming to pedestrian with the same old 'safe 'recipes everyone else does. Not only is it diverse – but you'll get tasty outcomes like this!!

Nice job once again Tom,
In the future I would love to see your take on pepper stout beef sammies!!
Also, what is your KCBS team name and how often do you compete?

Have y'all ever done any 'baked beans' on a smoker? I'd love to so that from dried beans to finished product.

Great instruction on this video. Been a brat fan for years but never made them from scratch. Thanks for the how-to on some of the techniques, (pinch and roll). Don't see that on very many videos.

Two questions… three…
-where is you're restaurant?
-What is the pelicle (couldn't find it with a search)
-how do you smoke your brats so they have a nice bite through the skin mine occasionally are chewy (skins)

Thanks for your help. Love your videos.

OK… Wisconsin born and raised here… Packer fan to the core. If there is 1 thing I know its beer brats. This is a ligit video, you have got it pretty good. There is only thing Id warn…. I own a bicycle shop, and people always think that Fat Tire is what we (bike gods in WI) like…. it isnt. I am sick of it… overrated! Fat Tire is to beer what Vanna White is to quantum physics. Do yourself a favor… find out what beer we here in Wisconsin use for beer brats… Colorado is about as respected for beer as Vegas is for snow shoeing. We consider Fat Tire a joke… Beer for people who dont know beer, but want to look like they know beer. If your in a pinch you can use Super Club… but then again… why waste Super Club on Kansas.

In Wisconsin we grill the brats first and then let them soak in beer, butter and onions for a while, plus the only way to eat a brat is in a double brat on a Sheboygan hardroll

Since you are making beer brats, could you have used some beer when soaking the casings? If so, would that have enhanced the beer flavor in the end product?

Would patting the brats dry with paper towels after the braising help with process of grilling to get color on them?

Great vid, I live in MILWAUKEE WISCONSIN, and I have been making sausage since I was a kid, of coarse I use Pabst in mine, we cook ares both ways, boiled in beer then grilled, or vice versa, both are good and different have textures, any way its home made and way better than the over rated Johnsonvilles. man i'am Hungry !!!!!

So you have the same technique for bratwurst and andouille sausage, but the difference is the seasoning?

Chef Tom, you have a great channel here, I really like watching the videos you post. Do you have a video showing how to wet brine and dry cure a pork loin for Canadian bacon? My next question is about the amount of pink salt/cure salt that is used. I understand that you use 1/4 tsp per pound or 1 tsp for 5 pounds. Where I get confused is when I watch a video on youtube some say that when you are calculating the amount of pink salt for your wet brine that you need to add the water weight to the weight of the meat to determine the correct amount of pink salt to add to your brine, is this method correct?

Another awesome video! I have only made sausage a few times, so it still takes me a while, but the results are totally worth it! I can’t wait to try this out. I would also love to see you make and cook some jalapeño cheddar sausage
