Barrel House Cooker Smoked Bratwursts with Beer-Braised Cabbage and Onions

Every tailgate party needs a cooker full of smoked bratwursts. These are made even better with smoked beer-braised cabbage and onions.



Spiessbraten is a specialty dish from the small German town of Idar-Oberstein. I was lucky enough to visit the town and try it once. To this day, I crave it regularly. Two flavor punches make Spiessbraten different from any other type of rotisserie pork: onions and beech wood.
