We have always loved the smoked beef brats and passed them on to friends, who also loved them. However, the last package is smaller, the links are smaller, and when grilled, shrink into hard tasteless links, smaller than a cheap hotdog. I understand raising the profit margin by cutting size, but ruining the product does not make sense. We are extremely disappointed!
Pretty good, but no match for Johnsonville's raw meat products
by T 3 months ago
I've used these a few times, and they are alright, but for me, it's more efficient to buy the raw meats and cook them myself for a better texture and fresher flavour. However, if you're just looking for simple hot dogs, these work swell.
I tried these the other day and they were awesome. My wife wasn't too sure about "brats" but these changed her mind. I won't be surprised if she has me grill these more often (which I definitely won't mind doing).
This great brat has been phased out by Kroger, Food Lion and Walmart in western Virginia. This was a warehouse decision,, not the local stores, so Johnsonville needs to commence direct shipping to consumers who are now deprived of this wonderful brat. What do you say Johnsonville....where's the love? I'm ready for a case as soon as you can ship them. Omaha steaks can do and so can you! Please help us!
Best brats I've tasted! But................the Wal-Marts here where I live (Baltimore, County, Maryland don't seem to carry them any more and they had the cheapest price. Only 2 supermarket chains carry them and they are very pricey #$3.99 and $4.79 a package). They really go well with the Secret Stadium Sauce a buddy in Mukwonago sends me periodically as that is also not found in stores here. Brats, steaks and chicken breasts are grilled weekly by me on my Smokey Joe BBQ and I do enough to feed myself for the week as I keep them in airtight containers in a very cold fridge! The only bratwurst that I have ever eaten that was better than these and the regular brats from Johnsonville were the Real McCoy a nd were consumed in Germany back in 1969-72 at the Schnell Imbiss stands located in the town of Bitburg. BTW, the regular stand I ate at was owned and operated by a fellow with a serial number tattooed on his forearm by those loveable National Socialist folks back in the 1930s and 1940s.
