Yield: 12 servings

2/3 cup stone-ground mustard
1/3 cup beer
3 (6-inch) links sweet or spicy Italian sausage, cut into 4 pieces each
½ medium onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
12 (6-inch) skewers soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1. In a small saucepan, combine mustard and beer. Bring to a low boil over medium heat, and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

2. Thread sausage, onion, and bell pepper pieces onto prepared skewers. Heat a cast-iron griddle with ridged side up over medium heat. Brush skewers with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place skewers on griddle. Cook until sausage is no longer pink, 15 to 20 minutes, turning skewers occasionally. Serve with mustard sauce.
