The deer season so far has been a success! I am wanting to try a few things this year with the meat such as bratwursts. I bought the Hi Mountain bratwurst kit. Is Bratwurst a "fresh sausage" ? or does it need to be cured and smoked? Which leads me to my third question, what flavour of smoke would you use with bratwurst sausage? Any help or guidance would be helpful. Thanks!
