Hi everyone! I'm fairly new to making sausages but I really love it. I've made a few smoked sausages with great results both finishing in the smoker and with a hot water bath in a pot on the stove. One requires a lot of time while the other requires a lot of tinkering and monitoring temps to make sure the water doesn't get too hot and the sausages don't fat out. I have seen some sausage pros on here use a turkey roaster for the hot water bath and I have some questions. 1. What is the reason for this? Are you able to just dial in a temperature? 2. Do you have to guess at first because the turkey roaster is designed to create an oven or air temp of whatever the dial says since you don't cook a turkey in water? 3. Will any type of turkey roaster do the job? 4. Can a slow cooker work for a water bath? Haha I think that's it for now unless I think of something else. Thanks everyone!
