We do have an ALDI. I will check thereWell, I'm spoiled, because I live in an area full of German butchers, so it's pretty easy around here.
National brands, though...not really. I don't know if you have an ALDI in your area, but they'll frequently get imported German brats - they come in a blue-and-white package (colors of Bavaria) and I've seen two varieties; regular and beer brat.
Other than that, maybe try to find an international market nearby, a smaller gourmet grocer, or maybe mail order. Somebody must sell brats through the mail!
Sometimes, the best thing to do is enjoy the memory, and then have fun exploring around, searching for something that may be different, but just as good.
Just a few...I believe there are a few German immigrant families scattered around Cincinnati.
I grew up in eastern Iowa. I am 100 % German. My grandmother made plenty of German foods but sausages were not among them. My wife is 100 % Irish.

Texas has a lot of German immigrant areas, not Dallas, but it's a big city, so we have that one German market. I believe there are a few German immigrant families scattered around Cincinnati.
One of my best friends is the product of a German-Irish marriage. She says, "That means I drink way too much Dunkel, and then try to kick everyone's ass!"I grew up in eastern Iowa. I am 100 % German.

I think you could cook them the same way, or indirect heat would be fine. Sometimes, I simmer them in a big pan of sauerkraut and sliced potatoes, then toss them on the grill for a few minutes to crisp them up.I bought some brats at Aldi today. Deutsche Kushe Bavarian Brats. I cook Johnsonville in beer, butter and onions then finish on the grill. Any recommendations on how to cook these brats. I’m thinking grill using indirect heat.
