Do you boil your brats before you grill them?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have always boiled my brats before I grill them. My girlfriend never does. How do you cook yours?

We never boil them first and neither does my brother (who makes the best brats!). Of course, we like them browned on the outside, so keeping them on the grill extra long to make sure they are cooked through, is not an issue.

No, dh just cooks them slow and low on the grill.

Yes, we usually boil them in beer with onions, then grill them.

No, but I don't usually grill mind outside. I just made yummy Johnsonville brats a few days ago browning them on the stove with onions and green peppers.

We par boil them to get some of the fat out & then grill them.

We do the same, and grill the onions as well. I always get compliments on them.

I never knew you should or could, but it makes sense. Next time, I'm going to try it this way.

My Dad tells me it helps to get rid of some of the fat so when you put them on the grill you have less of a chance of the fire flaring up due to the grease dripping. Plus, healthier (which is hard considering it's a brat). My Dad used to be a butcher so the one thing he knows is his meat.
