Sausage, Peppers, and Polenta – OH MY!

Italian sausage, red & green peppers, onion, and polenta (a corn meal based ‘patty’) all done over a two zone natural lump charcoal fire.
Poached or parboiled first on a bed of peppers and onions mixed with vinegar, salt, & beer, the sausages are then finished up over directly over the hot coals.
