The Bucks and Usinger’s will once again be searching for Milwaukee’s tastiest brat recipe, with the winning creation served in the BMO Harris Bradley Center during the April 12 game vs. Brooklyn

The snow is finally melting, and nothing says springtime in Milwaukee quite like the sound and smell of brats sizzling on the grill. Cooking the perfect brat is something Milwaukeeans are known for, and something we undoubtedly get right.

The Bucks and Usinger’s, in partnership with Pick ’n Save, are once again looking for Bucks fans and Milwaukee foodies alike to share their best Usinger’s brat creations in an online contest that runs now through March 25. Brat experts can submit the name of their “Best Brat,” how they cook it, and what ingredients and condiments they put on it through a form at

From those submissions, five finalists will be chosen who will receive two tickets to the April 12 Bucks game vs. the Brooklyn Nets (2 p.m. tip). The one grand prize winner from the bunch, as determined by online and in-arena voting, will receive courtside seats to that game vs. Brooklyn, a year’s supply of Usinger’s brats, and the chance to have their winning creation featured at the Usinger’s stand inside the BMO Harris Bradley Center on game night.

A timeline for the contest is as follows:

Now-March 25: Fans submit the name of their Bucks Best Brat, what’s on it and how it’s prepared online at

March 26-29: Bucks mascot Bango and Usinger’s mascot Fritz the Elf will determine the “starting five” brats.
