    Nothing fancy just a kit summer sausage mix. Safeway had 93/7 ground beef on sale so I grabbed 5 pounds and mixed it up.

    Stuffed using my LEMon squeezer into muslin sausage socks I sewed up using the wife's sewing machine. So far so good the seams appear to be holding!
    In the smoker for one hour at 120, no smoke. Then I'll add smoke (cherry) and up the temp to 140 and then 10 degrees every hour until I get to 180. I'll pull the sausage at an it of 156.

    Morning Dirt... I notice your muslin bags are soaking in water or something... That's the first I've seen or heard of doing that..

    Is that something you came up with or ??? ... It does make sense to me.... just curious.....

    It just seemed like the right thing to do. I washed them with vinegar yesterday and dried them. Just plain water this morning.

    Having a hard time keeping a consistent temp today! Had to open up the door to check my flame so I snapped a couple shots. The muslin is already turning a smokey color!

    Unfortunately the smoke from the forest fires is overpowering the cherry smoke coming out of the smoker. When you open the door, it's tasty!
