Title says it all. I picked up a package of fresh brats last night at the grocery store and want to try smoking them in the electric smoker instead of my usual "boil 'em then grill 'em" routine. Any of you guys have any tips?
Sure sounds good, and that is why I just remove the casings. They may help with moisture, but not had an issue with them being dry with all the fat they have in them. They get to be more like breakfast sausage in consistency/firmness, which is what I usually make the garlic version for.The casing was a little tougher than the usual boiled & grilled version, but they were sure tasty.
Well,I went with 220º to an internal temp of 180, with a mix of apple and mesquite. They came out great, but for some reason the pics I took didn't get saved. The casing was a little tougher than the usual boiled & grilled version, but they were sure tasty.
