Summertime Essentials:Beer-Braised Smoked Sausages

Andy Anderson !


You got a warm, lazy Summer day, you got beer, you got smoked sausages… what could go wrong?

I am making these for my party-by-the-pond night. Well, not exactly a party; just some friends getting together on a Sunday evening, kicking back and having some food and “adult” beverages.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
