They are smoky, savory delights that are all but irresistible. The brat originated in Germany, and has since become popular the world over. They can be boiled, baked, broiled, grilled and smoked, and cooked with all kinds of ingredients, including the most popular: beer and onions. Bratwurst are simple and quick to prepare and, with a little patience, they will be juicy and perfectly cooked.”
