    Got some italian sausages in the smoker but not sure what temp they need to get to? Was thinking 160-170??

    165° is good, so you are correct. Should take about an hour and half or so assuming 225° pit temp. Enjoy!

    Thanks guys, I took them to 170 since I wasnt sure. We had a big foil pouch with onions and red, green and yellow peppers with some seasoning and butter that I had put in the smoker before the sausages went in. The peppers and onions were still a little too crunchy so I put the sausages in the foil with all the goodies and turned the heat up a little, which help crisp up the bacon on the ABTs also. Best lunch we have had since, well since last week when we smoked turkey, meatloaf, fatties and ABTs! HA[​IMG]

    That sounds really good. I'll have to try some sausages in a pouch after a little smoke with vegetables like that.
