    I wouldnt go that high personally. If you are planning on eating right away, then pulling at 165 is fine. If you are planning on storing and re heating later, I would pull them at 150, and chill. Gives you a little cooking room when it's time to re heat. Brats in beer is like cheese and crackers. they just go together. I like to start brats in a pan with a little butter then deglaze and braise in beer to finish.

    Didn't happen!

    What kind of smoker do you have? I don't think the smoker has been made that someone on this forum hasn't modded, and hanging racks is a common mod.
  9. just did 4 Jimmy Dean sausage "rolls" regular and the maple on the smoker [​IMG] it turned out great .........i smoked them for four hours but it also will depend how hot your smoker is i try and keep mine around 220 degrees i could not even begin on the taste and the smoke ring in the sausage is real good ...........never did it before a friend tried it and told me about it so now i have a freezer with at least 2 ready to eat !!!![​IMG]
