How To Make Smoked Brats


Step 1 – Preheat Your Smoker

Preheat the smoker to 225ºF/107ºC and prepare the wood chips. Choose your favourite wood chips and wait until the smoker has reached the recommended temperature before continuing.


Step 2 – Smoke Your Brats

Place your brats on the grill and make sure there’s at least half an inch of space between them. Close the lid and let your brats soak up some smoke for 45 minutes.


Step 3 – Increase The Temperature

Once your smoked brats reach an internal temperature of 140ºF, increase the heat of your smoker to 350ºF.


Step 4 – Rest

Once your smoked brats reach an internal temperature of 160ºF, pull them off the smoker and let them rest for 5 minutes.


Step 5 – Serve

Crack a beer and enjoy the best tasking smoked brats you’ve ever had!


Tips For Making The Best Smoked Brats

  • BBQ Sauce. If you like BBQ sauce on your smoked brats, try adding some BBQ sauce onto your brats right before you crank the heat. The increased heat will help caramelize the BBQ sauce to the brat and give you a whole new mouth-watering flavour!
