Which is better...simmering them in aluminum, or stainless steel?

I don't know if glass is better than plastic

I don't know, but even at 7:52 on Saturday morning, those brats in Ed's picture are looking mighty good!

I don't know, I used to believe the only way to do beer brats was to grill them then put them in the beer bath. But, I watched Bobby Flay (SP?) one day and decided to try his way. Put beer and other ingredients (Garlic, Onions, etc. I perfer a dark Ale) you like in pot. Put pot on grill, make small cuts in brats (I know, never cut the meat, you lose the juices). Place brats in said pot and heat (DONT BOIL) until brats float. Then, pull brats and grill till nicely browned. These are the best brats I've ever had and I lived in Germany for 6 years and ate a lot of brats! The beer flavor really gets in the brat. If you grill them first, that "seals" them up and the beer (and other ingredients) can not get in.
This is my new way to cook brats, and I truely believe, if someone trys this and is honest, they will perfer them too.

That's similar to what I do, but I'm going to have to try that whole process

I boil mine in beer (bud or some other stuff that only smells good when you boil the fcuk out of it). Then I put them on the grill.

Don't poke a hole in them. All the juice runs out, then you have a dry weener. Sounds good, unless you're talking about brats.

.............hey whitey, where's your hat.

I like to boil them in beer then put them on the grill with onions, absolute perfection.

I've never tried browning them first and then adding the beer, I'll have to try that this winter when I go back to making them on the stove.

The real question of course is, which beer to cook them with.
