Our son-in-law makes all kinds of sausages and every year he fills our freezer with incredibly delicious summer sausages and brats. I've had trouble in the past getting the most out of grilling those brats until I came across this recipe from Kenji Lopez-Alt on SeriousEats.
I'm not even kidding how good these were. If you're into brats and you love to grill them, you HAVE to try this recipe. It's a total game-changer. Next time I do this I'll take some photos. The recipe may seem fussy, but it's totally not. Kenji tends to reduce his recipes to a science which has its plusses and minuses. Here it's a total plus. Try it... you won't ever go back.
