How to Grill Italian Sausage, Onions and Peppers

There’s just no better football food than some Italian Sausages with peppers and onions. You can cook it all right on the grill… so it makes this recipe perfect for a tailgate.

This grilled Italian Sausage recipe is easy. You can prep all your peppers and onions at home – and all you need are a few simple ingredients and a basic grill.

To start cooking your Italian Sausage, first you create a two-zone fire in your grill. You want to have one hot side of your grill and a cool side. Next place your sliced onions and peppers in a half-size steam pan with a little butter, olive oil and some basic seasoning and put it on the hot side of your grill.


Next place your Italian Sausages on the cool side of your grill. This allows you to fully cook your peppers and onions while you slowly bring your Italian Sausages up to temp – keeping them juicy and delicious.

You’ll need to turn your Italian Sausages about 15 – 20 minutes after putting them on the grill.


Then at the 35 – 40 minute mark your peppers and onions should be perfectly cooked and your Italian Sausages should be almost fully cooked. Now you will switch your Italian Sausages to the hot side of your grill and move your peppers and onions to the cool side to keep warm.

Grill your Italian Sausages over high heat for about 2 – 2.5 minutes on each side. You want them to reach a perfect mahogany brown without burning or getting too dark.


Once your Italian Sausage, peppers and onions are all cooked it’s time to serve these Italian Sausages on a bun with some spicy brown mustard.
