What's a Brat?

These are brats. They're on the grill. Don't they look great?! If you don't like the way they look, then I guess you don't like brats. Why wouldn't you like brats? I really have no idea why anyone would not like brats. But if you like the way they look, then you've come to the right place, because this is BratFry.com – the place to find out everything you need to know about bratwurst, grilling bratwurst, eating bratwurst, and talking about bratwurst. In fact, before you know it, you won't even be referring to them as bratwurst anymore. You'll just be calling them brats. Why? Because that's what they are! So welcome to my backyard – and now let's go fry some brats!

What's a Brat Fry, you ask?

Ah yes, the Brat Fry . . . The ultimate backyard culinary experience! German-style bratwurst from Wisconsin sizzling away on a grill, friends and family in the backyard on a lazy, hot summer afternoon, a cold brew or two (or three), and lots of musings about really important things.

Brat Fry is an attitude, a way of life

Did you ever notice there are no Brat Fry competitions on tv? You can find lots of cut-throat cooking contests or hot under the smoker BBQ competitions,, but you won't find a Brat Fry tournament on tv. Why's that? Because Brat Fry is an attitude and a lifestyle, not a competitive sport. It's all about friends and family. It's all about good food and good fun. And it's all about doing good to others around you. That's why many a Brat Fry are put on to benefit a local school, church or community organization. So, if you want a taste of the good life and make the world a better place – one brat at a time – you need to become Brat Fry. Here's how!
