How to make Beer Braised Brats on Pretzel Buns:
1. Place a disposable aluminum foil pan on top of a very hot grill. Add the butter, garlic and onion. Cook stirring the mixture occasionally until the onions are tender.
2. Place the sausages on the grill and cook until just colored and marked on the outside. Transfer the sausages to the pan with the onions (they will not yet be fully cooked).
3. Add the beer and peppers to the pan and continue cooking until the beer is mostly reduced (about 20 minutes) turning the sausages occasionally.
4. Warm the pretzel buns on the grill, spread with mustard and place a sausage along with some of the peppers and onions in each.
