    Easiest way to cook brats and I love the smell while it's simmering. Don't bother mixing the ingredients separately. Just dump it all in, stir it, and forget it.

    These are so easy, we have these going at least once a month, and have used everything from a dark bear to a Bud Light. Whatever you like, try it! It's so easy & delicious!
