  • ♫ I'm going to down to the house of sausage

  • ♫ I got my barbecue shoes on

  • Gonna find me a brat

  • And a red hot foot long

  • Gonna smoke me fatty brisket

  • Got my barbecue shoes on

  • - [Voiceover] Welcome to BBQPitBoys.com.

  • Today we're cooking up some brats at the pit

  • and it's real easy to do.

  • Now, as with every barbecue recipe, you must insist

  • on the best quality you can get and here

  • I have some Johnsonville brats.

  • You know all about these.

  • These guys have been around since 1945 for a good reason.

  • Their brats have the perfect blend of seasonings,

  • all packed in a natural casing for that bite.

  • You gotta have that bite for a good bratwurst.

  • Now, for today's recipe, I'm gonna show you our infamous

  • smoked double bacon brats.

  • They're fantastic.

  • Now this is how you do it.

  • You want to take one of these and you're going to split.

  • Take your old hickory knife

  • and you open it up just like that.

  • Do the other one just the same.

  • Now if you've never had these smoked double bacon brats

  • before, you're gonna have to check them out.

  • They're good.

  • Now, we've opened them up and now we're going

  • to interlace them, put both of them together,

  • just like that.

  • (moaning)

  • You're gonna have twice the brat in one bite

  • and these are real popular man.

  • I'm telling, when we're making these up.

  • Now take some regular sliced bacon, your favorite bacon

  • and just wrap em.

  • Just like that.

  • It may take two, maybe three slices.

  • Yeah.

  • Now what will happen is when we place these on the smoker,

  • the bacon will wrap itself tightly around the brats

  • and be sure to make a bunch of them.

  • They'll go fast.

  • Right.

  • See how easy it is to do?

  • No toothpicks required.

  • Now just in case you newbies had to go to the kitchen

  • and get yourself a peanut butter sandwich

  • before watching the rest of this video.

  • (laughs)

  • Let me show you again.

  • Take your knife, split that brat right down the middle,

  • open it up.

  • Now bratsgiving is coming.

  • It's August 16th is National Bratwurst Day.

  • This will go perfect for the big picnic

  • you're gonna have with family and friends right?

  • Again, here we interlace it.

  • Just like that.

  • And just take some regular cut bacon.

  • Don't use the thick bacon cause they will cook

  • in the smoke fairly quickly.

  • So the regular cut bacon works perfect.

  • Give it a good wrap.

  • There you go.

  • Ready for the smoker.

  • Now, let me show what we're gonna do with

  • that breakfast sausage that Johnsonville sent us

  • and this here's a pretty popular recipe.

  • We're gonna do a stuffed brat

  • and you take that breakfast sausage

  • and you stuff it inside

  • (moaning)

  • It's a great combination of flavors.

  • You definitely go to check this out.

  • The kids will love em.

  • Alright, now we're gonna smoke some of these brats

  • and of course our smoked double bacon brats are going on

  • and we're running a temperature in our smoker

  • of about 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Now if you don't have a smoker like this,

  • eh you can use your kettle.

  • Alright, just slow smoke it on your kettle.

  • Now no brat is complete with a good mustard sauce

  • and here we're using our honey mustard kraut sauce.

  • Easy to put together.

  • We got some sauerkraut, you got some honey, you got the

  • stone ground mustard.

  • We have some chopped onions.

  • Easy enough to do.

  • Put it together

  • and here we're also gonna make our IPA chipotle apple

  • mustard sauce.

  • This is good.

  • You just need some chopped apples, stone ground mustard,

  • I've got some chipotle.

  • You can add as much or little as you want,

  • depending upon your heat and here we've got some IPA.

  • Just little mix it and it is good.

  • And of course, a good bratwurst does real well

  • with just simply mustard or a simple chopped pepper

  • and onion.

  • Perfect.

  • Alright, now let's put these brats on the grill

  • and this is where it gets good.

  • We're gonna be using a medium heat.

  • You don't want a real hot fire, right?

  • You want to be able to control it, allow those juices

  • to slowly cook the brat inside, yeah.

  • (jazzy country music)

  • Now, Johnsonville bratwurst come in a variety of

  • sausages or brats.

  • Both fully cooked and fresh.

  • Definitely got to check them out.

  • Oh man.

  • Take a look at that.

  • Nothing like hanging at the pit with family and friends.

  • Especially on Bratsgiving.

  • You never, Carl the great brats giver just might show up.

  • Yeah.

  • Now, if you've never cooked a brat before

  • and there's some of you out there that haven't done it,

  • you just keep turning, keep a medium heat, give a thumbs up

  • and use an instant read thermometer to check the internal

  • temperature of your brats.

  • 160 degrees Fahrenheit is where you want to be.

  • Now, you can see here, the smoked brats are coming along.

  • (moans)

  • Yeah and also these smoked double bacon brats.

  • Take a look at that, huh.

  • We're gonna be eating good tonight, Martha.

  • (laughs)

  • Alright, it will take a couple hours for the smoked brats.

  • Now, you can see these are coming around real good

  • and they're cooked just the way we like them.

  • We're gonna pull them off the grill.

  • Yeah.

  • Yup, as most of you know, there's never enough brats

  • so be sure to cook up a ton of them.

  • (jazzy country music)

  • Yup, the younguns, they can help you too.

  • Alright, I say it's time to eat.

  • Yeah, thumbs up girl.

  • Now you can dress these brats up the way you want, right.

  • We've got all kinds of condiments and that's the best way.

  • Have a little a bit of everything, so everybody can enjoy

  • and that stone ground mustard sometimes is all you need.

  • Or add some sauerkraut, maybe some smoked peppers.

  • Or instead of using original Johnsonville brats,

  • you could use the cheddar brats, cheddar cheese

  • with bacon brats or buffalo bleu brats, beer brats.

  • They got it and it goes without saying,

  • there's nothing better to do than kick back

  • with family and friends, eating some bratwurst.
