    Im new to smoking and we are planning on doing some chicken for dinner, I thought I could use the leftover space for some small breakfast links, Temp? Time? Im thinking about going at 250 for the chicken.

    Hello Mr. Wolf,

    Looks like you're new around here, so first off, welcome aboard!

    250 is a good temp for cooking sausage. Time is hard to guess, but breakfast links shouldn't take too long. Main thing is to cook them until they reach an internal temp of 160-165*.

    The links came out tasty but a couple of them were dried out, I was sneaking them between chicken breast and thighs. Is the bottom rack maybe not the opportune location for small meat?

    Did you check them with a meat therm, sounds like the dry ones were overcooked.
