    What is the temp of the smoker?

    When I am doing it I usually go over several hours. I start the smoker at 100 then increase every hour by 10 degrees until I get to 170 then I wait for the sausage to rise. Depending on how thick the sausage is it can take 10+ hours.

    Pictures?

    Casings a bit tough but they taste good. Think they cooked to long. [​IMG]

    But the cut is there in the middle.

    They look good.

    What kind of casings did you use? Dry Packed?

    Also did you put them into a water bath when done?

    Also let them bloom over night and try them tomorrow. They will be much better.
