Parts

Beer & Brats

Step

Grill the brat and kielbasa on the green egg or charcoal grill. Place some hickory wood chip to the charcoal for additional smoky flavor.

Step

After getting a nice char on the brat and kielbasa, place them over the onions and peppers in a large foil pan.

Step

Cover with beer and add your old bay and red pepper flakes. (And crack one open for yourself to drink while your cooking!)

Step

Over medium heat simmer the brat and kielbasa for 15–20 minutes covered.

Rosemary Flat Bread

Step

Line 2 baking tray with some parchment paper.

Step

In a bowl combine the olive oil, rosemary, garlic, and yeast. Add the water to dissolve the yeast.

Step

Add the flour and salt. Mix and knead by hand until you have a smooth ball of dough.

Step

Spread the cornmeal on a flat surface. Place the dough on the cornmeal and cover with a warm, damp kitchen towel.

Step

Allow the dough to rise until double in size, for about 45 minutes.

Step

With a rolling pin, flatten the dough. Cut into 12 equal pieces.

Step

Flatten each piece with your fingers, pounding it out very thin.

Step

Brush each piece of flatbread with remaining olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt.

Step

Place the rosemary flatbread on the green egg or grilled about seconds per side.

Step

Serve with the beer and brat and enjoy.
