"You know the great Italian Sausage sanwiches that you have to pay four bucks for at the County Fair? Well, you can make them *better*, much less greasy, and a lot cheaper. On this recipe I happened to use a total of 30 franks and sausages but you can make as few or as many as you wish. You can use either a small or large charcoal grill or an open campfire. This is an easy partially-outdoor recipe. I always use combinations of peppers and chilies. For this batch (pictured) I used green bell peppers, Anaheims, and red chilies."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

If you are making both franks and sausages, boil the franks in the beer first (or otherwise, your franks will taste like sausage.) Boil each batch for about 15 minutes.

Step 2

Clean and slice the peppers into large chunks. Fire up your charcoal grill and while it is flaming good from the charcoal lighter, use a wok or cast iron skillet to fry the blend of peppers, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, basil, and liquid smoke (if using), all in the hot peanut oil. Do not cover or your peppers and onions will be rendered to slime! Cooking time on the peppers and onions is about 10-15 minutes over high heat, depending upon how tender you want them.

Step 3

When the onions and peppers are done, lay out the boiled franks and sausages on the grill and turn them frequently to prevent excessive burning. Some black tips are normal. When they are browned on all sides, make your sandwiches by placing a frank or sausage on a bun and then spooning on onions and peppers. Some folks may want mustard and some diners might rather have some drained sauerkraut instead of the onions and peppers.
