Thank you for the link!
Both of my parents were from Sheboygan, so brats have been a part of my family life forever. My father tried for years to get a brat recipe right, and the last I heard, the secret ingredient was sage. Unfortunately, I never got the amount from him. Last batch I made, I put 1 tsp in 8 pounds, but it was still missing something. I hope your recipe will get me closer.
