Last night on my show, I discussed a story I came across regarding meat markets in east Alabama selling out of duck. The reason being, Auburn played the Oregon Ducks in the national championship. Are you the kind of person that cooks a dish that is representative of your favorite team's opponent? If your team is playing the Saints, you might cook gumbo. If your team is the Saints, and you're playing the Eagles, you could cook philly cheese steaks. The opponent is the San Diego Chargers, and you can cook fish tacos. You get the point. 

What about last year's super bowl? If you're a Saints fan, you can't cook a horse, but you can cook Colt 45 brats! One of our loyal listeners, Kevin, e-mailed me this Colt 45 malt liquor bratwurst recipe last night when I posed the question, "What can you cook if your team is playing the Colts?" There isn't good food in Indiana, and (hopefully) nobody wants to cook horse. On the request of our great listeners, I've listed the recipe below. And below the recipe...another treat. The old Colt 45 commercial with Billy Dee Williams. The dude is just smooth.

Colt 45 Malt liquor Brats


  • 1 40 oz Colt 45 Malt Liquor Beverage
  • 1/2 a sliced or diced onion
  • 1/2 or whole green bell pepper
  • 1 tblsp. garlic
  • 2 tblsp. black pepper
  • 1 tblsp. salt
  • 1 tblsp. Worcheshtershire Sauce
  • 1/2 cup barbeque sauce
  • Buns of your choice, though I ate it without a bun, it was that awesome
  • 5 bratwurst (Or more)

Cooking Instructions:

  2. Heat Grill to high heat
  3. Bring Malt Liquor to a boil in a pot (You can sautee the onion and garlic before in a little oil if you want)
  4. Add Garlic, Onion, Bell Pepper, Salt, Pepper, Worcheshtershire Sauce, and BBQ Sauce
  5. Bring back to a boil, insert Brats
  6. Turn heat to Simmer (Around medium heat)
  7. Simmer until cooked through (They’ll be gray with no red remaining)
  8. Place on a plate with paper towels to absorb extra moisture
  9. Move to the grill and place the brats on there
  10. After about 3 minutes flip them, you just want good grill marks to seal in the moisture
  11. When they’re done Toss them on a bun
  12. Strain the onions and bell peppers from the beer brine
  13. Cover the bratwurst with onions and bellpeppers, hit with cheese or ketchup or mustard or relish
