"We used Yuengling brats for this recipe, and changed up the veggies a bit. I forgot to do the onion, but we used: tomatoes, mushrooms, red & green peppers, and summer squash. We had time to marinade it for only 1 hour. We enjoyed the flavor and could definitely taste the bourbon, but found the whole marinade to not be very strong. Next time I'll marinade it for longer than an hour and update my review afterwards. As-is, this is good, but we'd probably try some other stuff out there."

"Great marinade, upped the sugar by 1T. Omitted the mushrooms and used red/yellow/orange peppers. I had fully cooked brats on hand, marinated them with the veggies. Served over rice. Definitely will be made again and again."

"So perfectly yummy. My only complaint is that I have a really hard time getting the brats to stay on the skewer; but that's not really the recipes fault..."

"Great recipe! First time ever cooking Bratwurst. My boyfriend gobbled it up. He said he could have eaten the whole plate full. =) I used broccli instead of mushrooms. The yummy marinade really clung to it. I would definitley make this again for company!!"
