Okay everyone I learned a valuable lesson over again!
When you are grilling don’t let yourself get distracted!
Really, how simple is this? I guess not too simple this is the second time I let myself get distracted! The second time!
Needlessly to say I killed the brats not in a good way either. I was doing really good up to the moment of distraction. I started the Treager with alder pellets set temp to 350°F and waited for 30 minutes for the first turn. So far so good. I opened the Treager took a peek and a photo and rolled the brats for their final cook to temp. (See photo)
That’s when I got distracted and over cooked the brats! They split wide open exposing I hadn’t pricked them before placing them on the grill, and turned the casing into what can only be described as vinyl that one would use to upholster a fine piece of furniture.
However, the inside of the brats were very tasty and delicious given the fact they survived the near pending inferno. Believe me somehow they were still a little juicy and I managed to eat two before my jaws gave out chewing the vinyl casing.
Yes, I’m embarrassed but I may have finally learned once again to grill is to be attentive to the art if you expect a great outcome. So everyone, I post this in trust that I’m not the only one that has done this, but pray you all don’t follow or repeat my misfortune.
