    bratwurst is not in my wheelhouse.

    There are two schools of thought...

    1. Boil in beer with onions and butter and then finish on the grill.

    2. Grill low and slow, and carmelize the onions in butter and add beer into the onions.

    Any guidance will be appreciated.

    If you have a smoker, go that route. If not, go with #2.

    Done them #1 style, come out well. PRO TIP: Instead of beer, try boiling them in either hard apple or pear cider.

    It has been my experience that cooking them low and slow on the grill will make the skin tougher. If you boil them, then throw them on a grill for a few minutes, the skin won't be as tough.
