A favorite childhood recipe gets a makeover.

The Best Campfire Beans & Weenies

5 (12 ounces) Johnsonville Stadium Brats (or your favorite cooked brats), cut into 1/4” thick slices

1 medium onion, roughly chopped

1 green bell pepper, roughly chopped

1 clove garlic, peeled & smashed

2—15.5 ounce cans beans, drained (I use Great Northern & Red Beans)

1/2 cup beer (or water)

1/4 cup barbecue sauce


Ground black pepper

Set a cast-iron pot over high heat on the stove. Add the bratwurst slices and let cook until they begin to brown and some fat is released, stirring often, 4-5 minutes.

Add the onion, bell peppers, and garlic to the pot and cook until softened and starting to turn golden in spots, 5-7 minutes.

Add the drained beans, beer (or water), barbecue sauce, and a big pinch of salt and pepper; stir to combine. Move it to indirect heat (or lower the heat on a stove) and let it bubble until it has thickened up and the flavors have had time to come together, 10-12 minutes.

Taste and adjust seasoning as needed before serving.
