I like brats grilled, so I guess you know how I do them. Have fun making them. I usually make around 500 lbs a year. Not just Brats... I make many sausages.

How to Make Fresh Homemade Bratwurst sausage


  • 1Mix all the spices together in a bowl.
  • 2cut all the pork butt into pieces big enough for your grinder to handle. Spread the spices from the bowl on the pork chunks and mix well by hand.
  • 3Grind meat chunks with medium plate.
    (IMPORTANT) take a little piece of sausage and fry it to see if spices are enough, if not add and mix again.
  • 4My wife like brat patties. I like brat links. So i stuff half into hog casings, and the other half into bulk. I suck the air out of the packages, and freeze them.
