And now some tidbits about brats:

Bratwurst is a common type of sausage in the United States, especially in the state of Wisconsin. Originally brought to North America by German immigrants, it is a common sight at summer cookouts, alongside the more famous hot dog.

The bratwurst was popularized in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin in the 1920s. Each local butcher shop would take orders and hand make bratwurst fresh to be picked up on a particular day. The fat content of the sausages was substantial, making daily pick up necessary to avoid spoilage. Some of the fat is removed as a result of the cooking over charcoal.
The bratwurst (or “brat”) also became popular as a mainstay of sports stadiums around 1954.

So hey, fire up that grill for your Superbowl Party and make all your football friends your ‘bratwurst best friends’!
