    I thought I'd share some views of a recent venison/pork sausage smoking. [​IMG]

    Still tasting pretty good.  Smoked for six hours in that little metal shed that wasn't much bigger than a gym locker.  Fire pit not shown was a cracked cast iron sugar kettle with a piece of corrugated tin on top of it as a baffle.  Started the fire, let it burn down and dragged the kettle into the smokehouse.  Used some 6 month old sweet gum for smoke.  I didn't believe it either, but my friend and co-sausage maker had prior experience and swore by it.  It's actually a sweet and mild smoke compared to hickory.

    It's a pretty primitive setup - you have to sit near it and drink beer - keeping a close watch on the thermometer!  But that's kinda fun.
