Ingredients

  • 15 beer bratwurst
  • BBQ rub of choice
  • 1 bottle mustard based BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Start by generously seasoning your bratwursts with your favorite BBQ rub. Place brats on smoker for an hour at 225 degrees.
  • Remove brats after an hour and cut each one into 4 equal sized pieces. This will allow them to soak up more of the delicious sauce!
  • Pour your bottle of BBQ sauce over brats, then sprinkle brown sugar. Lastly, distribute pats of butter evenly.
  • Cover with foil, and place back on smoker.
  • Increase temp to 350 degrees and allow to cook 1 hr covered, stirring once. Enjoy!

Notes

These are an amazing appetizer or side dish.  Feel free to use a reg BBQ sauce instead of mustard based but I just feel like brats and mustard go together like peas and carrots.  A BBQ rub with a little heat really goes a long way as well!
