Got this idea from FSR402 at the Predators Homebrew gathering:

Slice your brat lengthwise, almost all the way through.
Spread Cream Cheese on both halves.
Lay sliced or diced jalepenos inside brat.
Wrap brat in bacon and pin in place with toothpick.
Grill or smoke until bacon is done.


So I try this last night with some leftover jalepenos in a jar. I like my heat mild, so I only used a little.

OMG! These were awsum! Even my daughter liked it, which I didn't expect. Only problem I had was the cream cheese wanted to drip out once the brat started swelling. It was still delicious, just wish there was a little bit more cream cheese. Maybe if I didn't close it up so tight when wrapping the bacon.

Sounds really good. I am assuming these are pre cooked brats right?

The ones I made last night were precooked beer stadium brats from like Hillshire Farms or something. Not sure why you couldn't cook them for a while on low, but brats can be difficult on their own, without having greasy bacon dripping more grease onto the grill.

But I will more than likely try fresh brats this summer.

something my friends came up with a few years ago: split a hot dog, and insert a slice of cheese, then encrust it with hamburger, and wrap the whole deal up with bacon. Heart attack on a bun.

For brats, this is my favorite way to cook em:
sear each side until well colored. then, place a cheap foil pan filled with beer, chopped onion, ancho chillies, fresh garlic, and pepper on the grate over the coals. Toss your brats in there and let them finish cooking. It lets them keep the great char flavor, but never lets the sausages get dried out. If you toss in some potatoes and let the liquid cook into them, it makes an awsome combo.

You could add the cream cheese and bacon when you're ready to eat.

OIC.

Well, don't try it then. And I'll keep an eye out for the Brat Cops. Wouldn't want to get arrested for doing anything immoral to my food again.

Wow - you are really living a narrow state of being, my friend.

Placing restrictions on bacon? Sacrilege!
