Smoked Johnsonville Brats
Smoked Johnsonville Brats - Ever since I was a child living in France I've really loved a multitude of different sausages. Being of Eastern European heritage one of my favorite sausage, if not my favorite, is Kielbasa but I must admit that a good Bratwurst, better known as Brats, is a close second. Most of us will admit that Johnsonville Brats are by far the best and most popular commercial sausage on the market. Here in Northern California there are a few great Butcher shops in the area. Two that come to mind are Lakewood Meats & Sausage in Lodi and Lockford Meats and Sausage. Both make a scrumptious Smoked Dakota Brat - but I digress!
Notice the beautiful smoke ring and juiciness of those brats. Each bite provided that nice touch of Hickory and an over abundant amount of rich savory mouthwatering flavor. To die for if you're a lover of a good sausage.
Fired up my MAK 2 Star wood pellet smoker-grill to 225ºF with Hickory barbecue wood pellets and smoked the Johnsonville Brats till the internal temperature of the brats reached 170ºF. Took a little over 2 hours to reach temperature.
