    I would smoke them just like we smoke our fresh (uncured) sausage.

    Maybe around 225˚ for however long it takes to get it to a safe to eat temp.

    Check "Smoking Fresh Sausage" in the search bar above.

    Your "snags" may be a little less fatty than our fresh sausage, but that shouldn't hurt anything.

    Hope that helps,

    Australian "snags" cooking on a campfire

    English style sausages, known colloquially as "snags", are popular at barbecues and are made in Australia using traditional meats such as beef, pork and chicken.

    If the're fresh uncured then smoke them at 225 to 160 internal temp.

    We do it all the time.

    They only take a couple of hours to cook.

    That's Great Ricky!!!

    The ones I read about they said could be lighter on the fat, but they were talking about Beef, Pork, Chicken, Roo, and other wild game---Might have been the wild game that was light on fat. So yours should be just about like our regular fresh sausage.

    Can't wait for the Qview!!

    A coonass asking someone to speak American English.   Snags = Sausage

    Like others have said if they are fresh you want to go ahead and get them done.  If cured you can go a good deal slower and really get a good amount of smoke in them.

    Let me see Snag = sausage

    Grill = grill

    coonass = good guy (atleast Al is)

    Beer = Fosters

    well I guess I'm learning here. Sausage needs to be grilled or smoked till it about 160° internally so I would say till it's really really hot on the bar bee.
