It's getting to be that time of year and I'm looking for a couple of things here locally. First, bratwurst. Yes, I know of Kramarczuk's in Northeast, but can anyone point to another worthy brat? I'm looking for something more like a German brat - fresh (not smoked) preferred, rather than the Northern WI / MN type of brat that's mixed with everything from jalapenos to apples. If there's a source for both pork casing (typical size of brat) and lamb casing (a bit larger than a breakfast sausage), that would be awesome.
Question #2 - is there a German bakery that sells pretzels? The big softer German style pretzel?
