Bacon Wrapped Brat Boats

Bacon Wrapped Brat Boats

Embark on a flavor adventure with these savory, smoky, and cheesy Bacon Wrapped Brat Boats. An appetizer that combines the smoky goodness of sausages, the creamy richness of cheese, and the irresistible allure of crispy bacon.

You Will Need

  • 2 packs of Kosmo's Q Sausages
  • 1 pack of Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
  • 1 lb (12 slices) thin-sliced Bacon
  • 1 pack of hot dog buns
  • Kosmo's Q Dirty Bird HOT rub, to taste

The Prep

To get things rolling, slice the sausages lengthwise, creating a perfect pocket to hold the cheese. Once they are prepped, give them a generous sprinkle of Kosmos Q Dirty Bird HOT rub, ensuring that they are coated on all sides.

Next up, preheat your smoker for indirect cooking at 350°F (175°C). While your smoker is heating up, stuff those sausages with the Mozzarella cheese sticks. Insert one cheese stick into each sausage boat, making sure it's nestled snugly inside. Carefully wrap each sausage boat with two slices of bacon, and secure the bacon with toothpicks.

The Cook

Finally, don't forget to give your bacon-wrapped brat boats one last sprinkle of Dirty Bird HOT rub for that irresistible kick.

With your brat boats ready to set sail, it's time to place them on the smoker. Let them cook until the bacon achieves that perfect crispy texture, usually around 45 minutes to an hour. Keep a watchful eye on them to make sure they reach that golden brown goodness.

The Payoff

Once your bacon-wrapped brat boats are ready, comes the moment you've been eagerly awaiting. Serve while still hot, on a toasted hot dog bun with the condiments of your choice.
