Genuine Irish Bangers are about the same as bratwurst. You can get good bratwurst here but I've never found good bangers. The only really good bangers I've had I brought back from Ireland.
However, during my time in Germany I became a bratwurst gourmet. My favorite ways to eat bratwurst are mit brochen (like a hard roll) and mit bratkartollen (home fries) .
Although, due to my travels I like a good chorizo or andoullie (sp ?) sausage. Ethnically, good Kielbasa (we always said kielbasi) is high on my list.
Don't know what I might bring. Been very busy with travel lately.
I'll look forward to brats!!!
