Smoked Sausage with Sauerkraut on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I’m always looking for something new to make on my oil-less fryer. This time I roasted a few smoked sausage with sauerkraut on the Char-Broil Big Easy and made a fantastic dinner. I could’ve made this dish with fresh sausages, but I had a 3-pound pack of pre-cooked sausages on hand, so that’s what I used. You can use fresh too.

So, like I said, it’s easy… Just skewer the sausages…

Don’t be afraid to roast a few red peppers on your Big Easy to add to the kraut.
