    Very nice, 140-160 tell it hits 150, how long did that take and what chips did you use, thanks.
     
  3. I use the cheap Brinkmann smoker for my smoke generator. Hang in the smokehouse to start. The smokehouse maxed out at 160 and I smoked them there for about 3 hours. Then moved them to the smoker to finish. It was at about 175-180 by that time since the fire was dying. Took about 30 min to bring them to 150 internal. They were around 138 when I transfered them to the smoker from the smokehouse.

    I use the smokehouse for cold smoke. There is a hot plate inside that I turn on to get the 160 otherwise it would be between 80-100.

    Used pecan and a little oak. It falls out of the sky down here in Texas.

  8. Made Gumbo tonight with the Andouille. Great..... The best gumbo I have made in a while. Used the sausage and some crawfish.

  11. I used the one from Ruhlman's book Charcuterie and compared it to this one. Kind of tweaked my based on these ingredients.

    They were similar but Ruhlman had some extra stuff. I did not use any onions, just a lot of garlic. The test fry was very spicey and I thought I screwed up but after smoking it was very good. Spices mellowed plus I use it in other dishes, like gumbo anyway. The gumbo was the best ever.
