Bacon wrapped stuffed brats! Help!

Ok, so Easter Sunday, I took my grill with me to work, to cook up lunch for us, since with only 2 employees in the store, we couldn't leave for food... I had this genius idea of taking johnsonville jalepeno brats, cutting a "v" notch out of them, stuffing them with cheese and a pickle spear, and wrapping them in bacon, and grilling them up (on foil, to catch the cheese and grease)... Well all was good, until the bacon grease caught fire, and burnt the bacon so bad, I couldn't really tell if I was eating brats or charcoal... How do I prevent this from happening? Seriously, I want to know! Anyways, I brought some steaks with me too, just in case.... But please help!

I love the thought of some bacon wrapped goodness, and I want to perfect it, but I'm not sure how...

That sounds like the best bbq meal ive ever heard of. Sucks your bacon burned. Maybe try cooking the bacon some in a pan before hand to get some of the grease out. Gonna have to try this one myself

I, too, have always had issues with grilling bacon.

Hopefully someone has the answer...

You grilling with propane or charcoal? I grill stuffed burgers and wrap the outside in bacon and have never had any issues. I grill on a Hasty-Bake charcoal grill

Charcoal... Maybe I'll have to try to be a little more indirect with it... In my mind, it was an excellent concept, but with poor execution... Plus, I felt like a let down to my co-worker... Lol

Any help on reducing the chance of burning bacon on the grill?

Agree...when I grill anything with bacon, I put the coals down real far away from the rack. Saves your and allows for more

When you put the foil down, you are letting all the grease build up, then when the foil breaks it's a massive fire.

No foil and just on the grates it slowly drips grease with minimum flare ups, as long as you keep the lid on.

I never thought about it that way with the foil.... I think I'll try again this weekend, thinking I'll stuff them with smoked Gouda cheese, and peppercinis...

I would suggest soaking them in beer for awhile before grilling...definitely adds to the flavor. In the op you said that you stuffed them with cheese and then a pickle spear. I have to ask, how was the grilled pickle? Can't say I've ever done that

Aside from the BURNT bacon, once a got the bacon off the rest was pretty good. I liked the grilled pickle. However, if you prefer the hot/cold contrast in every bite, you could put the pickle on last... And I must say, burning the cheese just enough to make it crispy was quite tasty!

Wow this is better then the pizza thread. For best results I would wrap them up, soak them in beer, Gettem crispy delicious on the grill and finish in the oven. Or u could deep fry them. Hmmmm I'm seeing a new special on the board.
