    I was watching triple D and a BBQ guy in KC made sausage and then stuffed it in corn husks instead of casings then smoked it.

    I made the sausage with a piece of loin and some pork belly fat that I had left over from a belly used for bacon.  I only made a little over a pound.  

    Loin cut into cubes


    belly fat.  I also added 4 slices of bacon for a little more flavor.  


    Sausage is ground and corn husks have been soaked.  I rolled into a log and then rolled into the husks.


    I found that if you put to husks opposite of each other then they roll up easier and you can fold both ends over.


    Just put on the smoker. Only took a couple of hours at 225


    Little qview of the finished product.  I prefer a fattier cut of pork for sausage but all I had at the time was loin.

    The sausage was still really good. 


    We sliced it and served it over rice.  I like a little sriracha sauce on the side.


    Thanks for taking a look.

    Good looking plate!!
  4. Nice looks delicous, I recently made some tamales using masa dough and some chipolte chicken, and I put a few in the smoker to cook instead of steaming them, and they turned out pretty good, they were different then the steamed ones a little more dry but not bad

    Looks good.  I just had hot peppers stuffed with Italian sausage that had been roasted and then covered in marinara sauce in a restaurant in Cleveland.  If you change the husks to peppers, it is the same process.  I think it would be great done in a smoker or even on a grill.
