  1. i smoked italian sausage for the first time today. 250 degrees for 3 hours with a hot&sweet rub. came out great with an internal temperature of 180 degrees.i use a Masterbuilt electric smoker and i used a mixture of mesquite and alder chips. mouth watering good.

    Those look tasty!! How did you get the rub to stick to the sausages? I usually find that rubs don't stick to sausage very well.

    Looks good, - nice snausages 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker

  4. after i take them out of the packaging i put them in a tupperware container in the refrigerator for a couple hours before i apply the rub. they get moist and the rub sticks well. then i let them get room temperature before i put them on the smoker.

    I never considered putting a rub on sausage, always assumed the spices inside would be adequate. Shows what happens when you assume, and gives me something new to try!
