I know this question has been asked before, but I am getting lost in all the threads as for what to do. My sons birthday is this weekend. I was going to smoke some ribs in the vertical smoker for the event. (I will be using propane instead of charcoal for the smoke to more easily control the temps) Then my wife asked me me to smoke some sausage (we get great smoked sausage from a local bbq place near us). The question is, can I do both at the same time? I am not going to be making my own sausage so it would be some store bought brand. I am guessing that it won't be cured, and am assuming there is no way to cure it once it has already been made into a sausage. What would be the best way to go about doing this? Or Should I skip the sausage altogether? I don't want anyone getting sick.
