Smoked Bratwurst

Postby SteerCrazy » Tue Aug 19, 2008 4:38 pm

Recipe from Bruce Aidells Complete Sausage Book

2 1/2 lbs Pork Butt, or
2 lbs Pork Butt and
1/2 lb Beef Chuck
1/2 lbs Pork Back Fat
1 Tbl Kosher Salt
1 Tbl Coarse Ground Pepper
1 Tbl Coarse Ground Mustard Seed
2 tsp Minced Garlic
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Ground Mace
1 tsp Dried Sage
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 C Water

For this recipe I did the 2 lbs Pork Butt + 1/2 lb Chuck + 1/2 Fat

I soaked the 6oz of crushed pineapple in dark rum for only 3 hours then strained most of the extra liquid off.

I pureed the crushed pineapple with brown sugar and teriyaki.
For the 6lbs we made it was 6oz Pineapple, about 4 Tbl Brown Sugar and about 3-4 Tbl Teriyaki.

I added the regular sugar that the recipe called for too. These were not overly sweet. I would suggest experiment first to your liking.

My father in law who did not like the idea of a 'sweet' sausage admitted to liking these.

I will say I have used other Brat recipes and liked them better. This recipe alone is just OK but doctored up they came out great.
