  10. i just fired up a charcoal fire, rather that the 100 coals, 50 coals bs in the recipe..... Beer Brats done right!!! STEP BY STEP Four Steps to Better Bratwurst Whether you're tailgating at the game or just grilling in your backyard, here's how to get great grilled brats and perfectly cooked onions every time. 1. Simmer the beer, mustard, and spices in a disposable aluminum pan over one side of the grill. Grill the sliced onions on the opposite side. 2. Transfer the grilled onions to the simmering beer mixture and grill the bratwurst until just browned. 3. Submerge the browned bratwurst in the simmering beer mixture to finish cooking. 4. Once the sausages are cooked through, return them to the grill to crisp up while the beer mixture finishes reducing. STEP BY STEP The Best Beer for Brats We tested eight lagers in our recipe for Grilled Brats and Beer, and tasters overwhelmingly preferred the mellow sweetness of Budweiser. Miller Genuine Draft was our second choice, with tasters praising its mild, malty flavor. Expensive imported beers, such as Heineken and Spaten, were bitter when reduced in the sauce, so keep those beers for drinking. Grilled Brats and Beer Serves 10 Light-bodied lagers work best here. Depending on the size of your grill, you may need to cook the onions in 2 batches in step 2. Standard hot dog buns will be too small or the bulky brats. 4 onions , sliced into 1/2-inch rounds 3 tablespoons vegetable oil Pepper 2 (12-ounce) beers (see note at left) 2/3 cup Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon caraway seeds 10 bratwurst sausages 10 (6-inch) sub rolls 1. Turn all burners to medium-high and heat, covered, for 15 minutes. (For charcoal grill, arrange 50 coals over bottom of grill. Light 100 coals; when covered with fine gray ash, pour evenly over cold coals. Set cooking grate in place and let heat, covered, with lid vent open completely, for 5 minutes.) Scrape and oil cooking grate. Brush onions with oil and season with pepper. Whisk beer, mustard, sugar, caraway, and 1 teaspoon pepper in 13 by 9-inch disposable aluminum pan. 2. Arrange disposable pan on one side of grill and grill onions on other side of grill until lightly charred, 6 to 10 minutes. Transfer onions to pan and grill sausages until browned, 6 to 10 minutes. Transfer sausages to pan, cover grill, and simmer until sausages are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove cooked sausages from pan and grill until lightly charred, about 4 minutes. Transfer sausages to platter and tent with foil. 3. Continue to simmer beer mixture, with grill covered, until onions are tender and sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Place bratwurst in rolls and spoon on sauce and onions. Serve.

    An elderly man is stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and is asked where he is going at this time of night. The man replies, "I am on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late." The officer then asks, "Really? Who is giving that lecture at this time of night?" The man replies, "That would be my wife."
  12. officer pulled me over and asked me why i was going so fast and didn't pull over sooner. told him my wife ran away with a state trooper and i thought he was bringing her back! not even a warning..
  13. the pitching is so much better, kids seem to be very well coached, fun to watch.
  14. ding! ding! ding! ding! I believe we have a winner! Was beginning to suspect that also when he began demanding "factual" responses, didn't really care about the opinions of people here who have hundreds of man-years worth of experience...

    ‎5000 years ago, Moses said, "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." When Welfare was introduced, Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land." Today, the government has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land to China
