Put an aluminum tray on the BBQ grill, put the brats in and pour a can of beer over them.  Simmer for 10-15 min until cooked through then transfer to grill top to crisp the skin.
Beer-brats the way God intended.

I am on paternity leave through mid October! So I have all the time in the world at the moment (in between helping my wife and holding the baby)...I am going to try that this week...perhaps use a fork to poke holes in the brat before putting in the beer!

Yes Sir! We just had a baby boy (four boys and two girls - heaven help me!) and I am fortunate enough to take five weeks off!

Grill. Indirect heat and a closed lid, mid temp. That's all they need IMO.
Edit: a little mustard (the real one with a pale color and tons of wonderful flavor) works well.

I usually cook them on the grill, or  butterfly them and cook them on a skillet.

Biggrin OK, I officially hate all of you folks who can eat stuff that tastes good! I had my first beef steak yesterday after 3 months. It was delicious despite only being pan fried and having no salt on it.

The food in the pix looks delicious.

In another life, or so it seems, one of my favorite breakfasts was thin sliced kielbasa and eggs scrambled in the same pan mixing the 2 together.

I cannot recall the current restrictions on your diet, but I am pretty sure that you could gorge all day on delicious food in Japan. Because of our family situation, I am there often and the varieties of (very) fresh fish and noodles of infinite varieties can go a long way.

Biggrin That's because I never wrote them out.

Near as I can figure if it tastes good I need to spit it out. If it's tasteless I can swallow it. But noodles (pasta) is on the restricted list, as are bread and potatoes, probably rice also. Yeah, it makes eating easy (written with sarcasm) but it's what I have in my older age and the sarcasm is not intended toward you or anyone but myself. For the record I now cook with spices and such and leave the sodium, fats, trans fats, and sat' fats alone. OK, starch and sugar is best left alone also. They are all risk factors for me. Basically what it means is that I am working on a much different way of cooking and eating. I still crave the old foods though. The other day I ate a tuna fish wrap and the wrap was made of a lettuce leaf. Now that is totally different for me. It still had too much sodium and I was thirsty for the entire afternoon. In years past I consumed 3g+ of sodium daily + the salt shaker (as does most everyone) and it wasn't a problem. Now I go anywhere near 1g for the day and I'm drinking all sorts of water and I'm uncomfortable with it.

Basically I'm trying to reduce my risk factors since I'm genetically predisposed to heart disease and in fact had a very mild heart attack and a triple bypass, while still trying to make life worth living... Like everyone, I like food that pleases me. Three months after my operation my latest blood work came back as 43 LDL and 72 HDL and I want to keep it that way. No, that's not a mistake, those were the test results. I've always had a high HDL and it hasn't changed. My Dr tells me that people would kill for those numbers. But I use oils that promote those HDL numbers. So I simply can't eat the foods that make me happy. But I do enjoy seeing them here and telling everyone, in jest, how much I hate them. It's actually envy on my part and designed to get more posts and pix.

That's how I cook 'em too, Lloyd. Cover them in Curryketchup too. The easiest to find in the USA is "Hela" and it's good. Werder brand in Berlin is worlds better and I savor the two bottles I brought home.
