Prepare your barbecue grill according to manufacturer directions.  Grill sausage until heated through and charred on all sides, about 5-8 minutes.  Cool slightly and slice into bite size pieces.  Alternatively,  cut sausages into bite-sized slices. Thread slices on 3-4 long metal skewers.  

Cut tortillas into quarters and loosely wrap in foil.  Place tortillas on side of grill to heat through.   Place sausage slices on a platter.
