Grill Tips

1.pngParboil with beer

In a pot placed directly on the grill, add your favorite beer and Queen City sausages.  Before they even touch the grates of the grill, allow the sausages to simmer in the beer for about 5 minutes.


2.pngCook Slowly

Once the grill has warmed to a medium-low temperature, and the sausages have been heated throughout, remove them from the beer and place them right on the grill.  Cook each link slowly over low heat to preserve its juices and optimize flavor.  High heat leads to burnt casings, overcooked sausages, and flame flare-ups; grill slowly and carefully.


3.pngUse tongs

Forks pierce sausage casings and allow juices to escape.  Avoid flare-ups and dry sausages by turning them often with tongs.


Note: More cooking time may be necessary when cooking raw sausages.
