Sunny's Currywurst With Quick-Pickled Peppers and Onions

Sunny says, "Some of my first memories of grilling — and hot dogs to be specific — were in Germany using bratwursts and shoving them in chewy, crusty bread called 'brotchen.' Currywurst is a famed dish there served with cooked and sliced bratwurst covered with a spicy-sweet curry ketchup sauce. This is my version of the dish that's summer- and grill-ready!"
