Brats'n Kraut w/Mixed Potatoes
Mar 04 2014
Finally we had a slightly warmer day with sunshine so I could cook out. I had bought a package of frozen brats from my butcher a couple of weeks ago to have with the little bit of homemade sauerkraut I had left.
In the afternoon I made some peach cobbler to have for our dessert. I heated up the smoker at 4:00 for a half hour and it was about 200 deg. grill level. I did the brats for a half hour then went to 250 deg. for a half hour, then 340 deg. grill level for the last half hour. I had put some potatoes on for 1 ¼ hours in my wire basket. The brats were on grill grates.
The potatoes were some Ore Ida olive oil and seas salt wedges and some Alexia sweet potato fries. When I do them on the smoker I thaw them out first. I had the oven preheated to 200 deg. to hold the brats and potatoes while I toasted the buns, well while I charred the buns! I over did them a little! I sprinkled some WOW on the potatoes before going in the oven.
My wife had some regular kraut and mustard on hers and I had S.A. style Curtido on mine along with some of my homemade spicy mustard. Pretty simple but pretty good even with a little char taste!
