Chef Dad's Crock Pot Beer Brats
INGREDIENTS:
Bratwurst Sausage Links (up to 12 links)
1 Quart or 3 Cans of your Favorite Beer*
2 Cups (or one 15 oz. can) Chicken Stock
1 Onion (diced)
6 Stalks of Celery (sliced in small pieces)
1 Red Bell Pepper (seeded & sliced in long strips)
4 Garlic Cloves (minced)
---------------------------------------------------------
Buns & Condiments 

COOKING:
1)    Put your onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic across the bottom of your crockpot.  Now lay your brats on top of that.  Now add your beer and chicken stock.  Cover and set the crockpot temp to LOW. Cook brats for at least 4 hours and up to 6.  If you're in a hurry, use the HIGH temp setting and go for 3 hours.
2)    Use a pair of tongs to remove the brats from the crockpot and set aside.  If you want to use the cooked veggies as a topping for your brats, simply strain them through a colander then move into a bowl.
3)    The brats are fully cooked, but if you want to brown the skin before eating, feel free to finish them off in a frying pan, on your grill or in your toaster oven.  I would first rub them with some olive oil to get that nice brown crust.
4)    Serve on a fresh, soft hot dog bun with your favorite condiments on the side such as sauerkraut, diced cucumber, onion, relish, mustard, etc.

Cook's Notes: *I recommend using a good domestic beer like Budweiser, Coors, or their Light brand etc.  This adds a great flavor but won't dominate and ruin the taste like a heavy malt beer.  When shopping, don't buy brats that are labeled as "beer brats".  We want regular bratwurst from the package or fresh from the butchers department.
