Cooking with Sun King: Campfire Style Sausage & Peppers


Friday, January 20, 2012

This is a great recipe for when you can’t sneak away to go camping.  Pairs well with Osiris Pale Ale or another hoppy beer.

1 lb smoked sausage cut into ½ inch rounds
1 red pepper julienned
1 yellow pepper julienned
1 red onion julienned
1 jalapeño pepper diced
1 cup of corn (fresh, frozen, or canned)
1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
1 cup of Sunlight Cream Ale or your favorite light body beer
1 TBSP worcestershire sauce
1 TSP cayenne pepper
1 TSP cumin
1 TSP granulated garlic
1 TBSP salt
½ TBSP pepper

In a mixing bowl combine BBQ sauce, beer, worcestershire sauce, & spices.  Add the sausage and veggies to your BBQ sauce.  Take a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil and fold into a pouch.  Pour everything into the pouch and place on a medium hot grill over direct heat for about 25 minutes, turning half way though.  Remove from grill and serve directly from to foil pouch.

Serves 4
