How to make Grilled Jalapeno Popper Sausage Skewers

Begin by getting your grill setup for direct cooking. I used my Nomad Grills for this cook and loaded it up with a full charcoal chimney. 

For the brats, you can really use whatever your favorite type are. I have made this recipe many times using some beef jalapeño cheddar brats and some regular pork brats. The options are endless and the great thing is, each one can take on a different flavor profile. 

Line up all of your brats flat in a row, then place 2 or 3 skewers through all of them ensuring they are highly secured together. You want to avoid any gaps because later on in the cook you will add toppings and you don’t want them falling through into the fire.

Once all the brats are on skewers, place them on the grill grates over a medium heat. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip them over and let them cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Keep a close eye on the outside of the brats to make sure that they do not burst open. If they burst open, you will lose your juices and they will dry out quicker.

When both sides have some char on them, move them indirect of the heat source and let them cook for 5-7 minutes. 

Next, add the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon and diced jalapenos on top of the brats. Let them cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until the cream cheese softens and the cheese melts. 

Remove the skewers from the grill then slice in between each skewer. Serve them up on a skewer or remove them from the skewer then place a toothpick in each one.
