How To Grill The Perfect Polish Sausage

Polish sausage, also known as kielbasa, can be made from pork, beef, turkey, lamb, or even chicken or veal. Every region in Poland has its own specialty and, depending where you go, locals will have a different opinion of which variety is best. Whatever type you prefer is fine, you can simply pick up a pack at the grocery store or challenge yourself by making your own. Take the sausage and place it on the grill over medium heat and allow the sausage to cook evenly throughout, getting the nice grill marks on both sides. Serve your grilled polish sausage on a bun with fried onion to stay close to Polish roots. Others enjoy their kielbasa with sauerkraut or yellow mustard, onions and pickled jalapeno peppers. This dish is a great addition to any cookout and is so easy to make that you won’t mind when people start asking for seconds. In this video, Chef Mark will give an online cooking lesson on how to grill the perfect polish sausage. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.

  1. How is it possible to use a towel to put oil on a hot grill????

    • Hi Marcella,

      We recommend using a paper towel. Lightly coat the paper towel in the oil of your choosing and, using large tongs, apply a very light coat of oil to grill irons. Make sure that the flames are calmed. We recommend doing it right before you add the food onto the grill. If need be, use a fire-proof grill glove to make sure you don’t get burned. Thanks for watching!

  2. Grilled polish sausages is one of my favorite food. Thank for sharing, but I think that you must boil the sausages first before grilling.
