Chorizo Sausage Links....Just in time for Football Sunday!

  1. Happy Football Sunday............woo-hoo!

    It's me...... Josie aka SmokinVegasBaby checking in.  I know, It's been a long time since my last post....I've been busier than a one legged woman in a butt kicking contest LOL. Working sure does get in the way of my playtime.  Anyway, I had a couple of days to relax so I made a 5 lbs. batch of Chorizo Sausage Links.  I normally make Chorizo using MY season blend.  For this batch, I tried the LEM Chorizo Seasoning. I must say it was super tasty and the flavor is pretty darn close to my Chorizo recipe. I will use this product again SOON. This whole package will make a 5lbs. batch.  I ground up a 5 lbs pork shoulder and used the entire package of Chorizo seasoning, mixed with 5 oz. of cold water.  I stuffed all of my links and placed them in on a wire rack lined baking sheet pan.  I put them in the fridge UNCOVERED. and will leave them in there overnight.  This will help the flavors meld together and it will help the sausage casing to dry out. 


    I purchased a small Masterbuilt Electric Smoker just for smoking sausage.  I love this little smoker.  I smoked my Chorizo with hickory chips.  I smoked it until it reached an internal temp of 155-160. I removed my Chorizo sausage from the smoker and put it into a large container full of ice water to stop the cooking process. My Chorizo Sausage Links are insanely delicious with a nice bite thru snap. 


    Here's how I made my Chorizo Sausage Links with Sautéed Onions and Roasted Peppers

    I sautéed some sliced yellow and green onions in a small pan with some olive oil - I cooked just until softened


    I added some roasted bell peppers to the mix also


    Then I added 2 of my Hickory Smoked Chorizo Sausage links to the pan.  I cooked my Chorizo sausage until it was warmed thru and slightly browned.


    Finished Chorizo Sausage Links with Sautéed Onions and Roasted Peppers - finished just in time for my Steeler game....

    It's a good thing my Chorizo Sausage Links were amazing because my Steelers are getting whooped!  I'm about ready to throw my "Terrible Towel" at the television screen

    Hi Josie! Great to see you here!

    Excellent Chorizo! I'm sure those chorizo sandwees were fantastic!

    Seems everyone's football teams this year aren't doing well. At least we can all still eat great food to drown our sorrows!
