    From wikipedia:

    Bratwurst is a common type of sausage in the United States, especially in the state of Wisconsin, where the largest ancestry group is German.[10] Originally brought to North America by German immigrants, it is a common sight at summer cookouts, alongside the more famous hot dog. Wisconsin is also the origin of the “beer brat”, a regional favorite where the bratwurst are poached in beer (generally a mixture of a pilsner style beer with butter and onions) prior to grilling over charcoal.

    In the area around the upstate lair we have a number of small, organic meat providers, so it is quite easy to find fresh or smoked local sausages, and the lair is quite close to “Little Poland” in Brooklyn, so finding good quality sausages is quite easy. It may take others a bit of effort to find these, but the taste more than makes up for the trouble. If all else fails get a GOOD quality commercial product.
