Needing some help

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by bcox321, Oct 12, 2016.

  1. So I've never made sausage before. Im looking to get started. I'm new to the site and I've been doing a lot of research and looking at old threads and I still seem to be slightly confused. I would like to make some sausage as you would find at a BBQ joint. I've seen recipes for cheddar and jalepeno stuffed sausage and would like to try. My question is with making this type of sausage am i going to need a cure? Also what's the best method for cooking a sausage like this? Smoking it slow? Higher temp smoke? Direct heat? Any advice or pointers would be highly appreciated

    BC321, You need to use cure if smoking a sausage. Low and slow is the way to smoke .Leave your dampers wide open for an hour or more at 110-120 to dry your sausage so it accepts smoke. Add smoke after drying and bump up the temp every hour 10-15 degrees. cook until you reach the proper internal temp ,don't exceed 160-170 in smoker temps. This is just a quick guide ,check out the search box above for more in depth ideas and recipes !
  3. Awesome that's what I'll do!
