Welcome to Bratfry Ferg's backyard!

OK, take a good look. 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 - 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, because that's what they are.


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. Did you ever notice there are no Brat Fry competitions on tv? You can find lots of cut-throat, hot under the smoker BBQ contests, but you won't find a Brat Fry tournament on tv. Why's that? Because Brat Fry is a lifestyle, not a competitive sport. It's all about friends and family, good food and good fun. If you want a taste of the good life, you need to become Brat Fry. It's as simple as that.

10 Years on the Web!

Imagine that - ten years of! Bratfry Ferg thinks that's a good reason to celebrate (if it were 11 years, he'd have to carry the one to add it all up, and that could get confusing). And the best way to celebrate is - you guessed it - with a Brat Fry!

Hope you enjoy - either for culinary inspiration or when you need a bit of pick-me-up relaxation. And check back every once in a while to see what's on the grill.
