I hope they're serving something a little more hand-crafted at Sheboygan Brad Days than Johnsonville Brats.

Excellent! Then you can tell us... is their brat better than the Brat Stop's?
(The reason I ask is, I may be headed up there in a couple of days - and
would like to stop, but probably have to choose between the two

From my conversation at the Brat Stop it's my understanding the grill man gets there at 8am mostly. I'd say 8:30am, maybe even a little later on the Brat Stop brats, if you want bar grill brat certainty.
Looking forward to the brat face-off results. If you think of it, please ask at Star Bar how they cook the brats.
G Wiv wrote: I learned yes indeed Brat Stop brats are made by Usinger's, but only, and this is the very important fact I missed, the specialty brats, ie jalapeno, onion, cajun etc. The all pork Brat Stop brats are made to their original recipe specifications by Busch in Silver Creek Wisconsin.
