Want to cook sausages for a crowd? Use the Anova Precision Oven to cook without needing to flip or worry about burning. While these traditional beer brats are perfect for game day, you can swap the beer for stock or non-alcoholic beer if you prefer. You can also use these time and temperature settings to cook sausages without any additional liquid.
