Ehm... I know children can be a big PITA at times, but grilling or boiling them seem to me a bit too extreme of a measure to take...

I thought the post was about bratty kids until I read the post.

I strictly grill mine. I haven't ever tried soaking them in beer but may give that a shot in the future. I serve mine with onion and peppers and lots of mustard.

Ah, Bratwurst!! thanks for the input, Sizzlin!! Never thought of that... yes, good stuff... personally I never cared for "boiling" any sausages, grilling or broiling is the way to go for me... also probably slitting them in half and pan searing would work, too, yes, onion and bell pepper will compliment them nicely.

I usually grill them first, then slice them and simmer in gravy (maybe not a way you could serve them in a restaurant, but this is the way to go when you have small kids! The only one in the family who doesn't like this is the dog who used to get some extra meat when the kids tried to handle their knife...

DH always said he didn't like Brats.....well I found out its because he had them broiled and never grilled. Turns out he does like them but likes them grilled.
