Smoked Sausage with Sauerkraut on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.

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…

Into a fired-up Big Easy for about 20 minutes… The sausages came out moist and very flavorful…

Meanwhile I cooked up some kraut with onion and carrots. For the final dish I added a bit of our favorite mustards from Zatarain’s.

You could just as easily leave out the carrots and just serve the smoked sausage with sauerkraut on the Char-Broil Big Easy on buns topped with kraut and mustard. Yum!

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