OK the advertisements pulled me in. I had never tried them, but oh man I've found a new favorite. Brats and Cold Beer. So far I have just grilled them, but a buddy of mine takes a pan with onions and melted butter, and after he grills the brats he puts them in the pan to simmer. I have heard that brats are a "yankee" thing and not a southern thing. I don't know but I'm open to other ways of cooking these things. Any ideas? I hear they are "heart healthy" too.
