Looking forward to reading lots of good tips here!
Wichita Kansas here!
I have been grilling my whole life, in the last few years I have started getting into processing and smoking more.
My favorite snack stick seasoning is the BBQ/Habanero Summer Sausage/Snack Stick seasoning. It is amazing as a Summer Sausage too!! With Habanero in the title you might think it would be too hot, but its not, the sweetness from the BBQ balances it very well.
For Brats…its too hard to pick one, for pork/beef it is probably Habanero Mango or Cheeseburger Cheddarwurst. We also make a lot chicken Brats and for that the best one I have tried so far is the Raspberry Chipotle. However we are going to be doing some Hot Buffalo Wing Brats with Hit-Temp Blue Cheese once that comes in stock. I will definitely give everyone an update on how those turn out!
Also the patty mixes Roasted Garlic and Onion, Jalapeno and the Montreal mixes are all VERY good!
I have a Green Mountain Daniel Boone grill, using mostly Pecan and now Cherry Pellets.
