While on our Lincoln Lodge vacation I learned that although the Madison Brat Fest is officially the World’s Largest Brat Fest, the World’s Best Brats are made at Trig’s Smokehouse in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Trig’s Smokehouse brats are sold at Trig’s Grocery Store in Minocqua, Wisconsin, which is where we shop while visiting the Lodge. Lucky me, getting to enjoy the World’s Best Brats and the World’s Largest Brat Fest all in the span of six weeks!
In case you were wondering, the World’s Best Brat is determined during the annual World’s Best Brat Competition, held each October in Watertown, Wisconsin. If Tom’s gig as a professor doesn’t work out, he’s seriously considering a change of profession to that of Brat Taster/Judge.
