Hello all! I am ready to make an investment. I have been smoking sausage successfully for a couple of years now with my share of trials. I have made several batches of sticks and have had one good batch. I am ready to take it to the next level to make my sausage better and to make good sticks more consistently. So like I said I am ready to make an investment to make that happen. I have been going back and forth between the Auber PID controller for more Bradley smoker or going down the water cooking road. I like both options, I like the tradition of finishing in the smoker but I am attracted to the speed of the water cooking, 1 because I have a family and time is tight and 2, I can make a lot of sausage in one day. By the way does using a PID speed the cooking processes in the smoker? So I don't really care which direction I go but I want to hear what you are doing, and if you are water cooking what are you using, a pot on the stove, roaster oven etc.
