I gave this three stars because even I know how ridiculous it is to prick your brats. And they don't explode if you don't either. I'm guessing that I'm like a lot of people that don't have a sausage monger around the corner and are using Johnsonville or other readily available brat from the grocers. This recipe is a good start as is, sans the pricking. Made it as written (again, no poking) the first time. I think if you want to elevate this, change your choice of beer, buy artisan brats, etc. The beer and onion broth is great. Tonight we're going to simmer the brats in that liquid first, then grill, then place back in the pot until everyone is ready to eat. Just whatever you do, DON'T PIERCE YOUR BRATS. :)
