    When the bratwursts are ready, cut them lengthwise and place them on the pretzel rolls that have been spread with mustard. Top with some of the sauerkraut and enjoy. 

    Helpful Tips: 
    1. If you use canned sauerkraut, then make sure you rinse it very well for better flavor.
    2. If you can't find bratwurst, then you can substitute kielbasa. 
    3. After removing bratwursts from the grill, place them in the sauerkraut to keep them from drying out.
