1'st I want to say hello to everyone. This looks like a great site to learn from. I'm smoking Venison summer Sausage without a casing and it's my 1'st time smoking summer sausage. Can someone help me with the external temp. I should be smoking at and also the internal temp I should have when it's done. I am using cure and I'm not using a casing. And also when I do reach my internal temp.will I need to give these 1lb. fattys a ice water bath even though there isn't a casing around them?. I am doing 14 - 1 Lb. fattys.
