Tips for Cooking Brats on Blackstone:

  • Cook Different kinds of Brats – You can easily use this recipe to cook Italian sausage or any flavor of bratwursts that you prefer or love.
  • Place on Low Heat Side – We recommend starting the bratwurst on the indirect heat side. This allows for the brats to cook nice in slow to achieve that crispy texture and juicy on the inside.
  • Cooking Temperature – Make sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure your bratwurst is cooked. But it needs to be inserted in the right place so you do not release any of the juice.

    Insert the thermometer at the center of the brats through the end of the casing.

We like to toast the bun so it is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Add mustard then your brats for the perfect weeknight meal.
