They've been called the bachelor's answer to Martha Stewart, so who better to share tips on cooking the best barbecue this holiday weekend than the "Feasty Boys?"

Chefs Jon Mayer and Jim Stump, whose cooking show can be seen on ESPN and other cable networks, joined "Good Morning America" with grilling tips and recipes for beer-basted hot dogs, bodacious burgers and hickory smoked pizza.

Feasty Tip: Submerge your brats in a pan filled with beer, butter and sliced onions on the grill. The brats will stay warm and juicy in the liquid for hours. When ready to eat, simply remove and flash grill the brats as need be. The alcohol completely cooks off, making this dish safe for picnickers of all ages.


  • 10 hot dogs (or bratwursts)
  • 10 hot dog buns (or hoagie rolls)
  • Gas or charcoal Grill
  • Medium-sized holding pan
  • Holding Sauce
  • 3 cans domestic beer
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 stick butter
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat grill to medium/medium-high heat.

    Place beer, butter and onions in a metal holding pan on grill and bring to a boil.

    In the meantime, place hot dogs/brats on grill, approximately seven to nine inches above the coals, and turn often until done, approximately 20-25 minutes. (Internal temperature of 150°F.)

    Turn brats often using tongs to both avoid puncturing and charring on the outside.

    When brats are done, place in the "holding pan" until ready to eat. Serve on bun, dressed with your choice of favorite condiments.

    Top with ketchup, mustard (preferably brown), chopped onion, sauerkraut, grilled onions, peppers, and whatever else you like.
