Another post on Wisconsin bratwurst but I can't help myself, they are so good and I must spread the word!
This time I used Usinger's bratwurst. Usinger's is located in downtown Milwaukee on Old World Third St. It started as a butcher shop in 1880 and has grown into a family-owned sausage-making factory offering everything from bratwurst and hot dogs to blood sausage and head cheese.
Here is their historic television commercial.
I love beer brats like anyone who has had them but smoking the bratwurst over low heat brings a whole new flavor to it. Hence, the self-pinned name Smoke 'Em for 60 Bratwurst. Smoked and cooked for 60 minutes over indirect heat turns the Usingers into snappy, juicy, delectable goodness. Condiments go well with them but they are so flavorfull, it tastes great on an undressed bun.
Usinger's sell their brats fresh in the stores, uncooked and not frozen. The bratwurst are made of finely-grounded lean pork. Oh yeah, real nice!
