slow smoke summer sausage?

7 posts in this topic

Does anybody have a recipe for a slow smoked summer sausage?

I have had some from a butcher shop before and I love the way the skin gets cooked and the taste of it. I recently purchased a smoker and would love to give it a try.

Thanks

If you use the recipe from the butcher that will work fine. The key is how large of a batch are you making and how big is your smoker. My group has a smoker that is an 8x8 walk in, so a little larger then what I assume you have, that being said the principals are the same. We stuff the sausage the night before and smoke with hardwoods for 8 to 10 hours and we don't let the temp of the smoker get above 120. We then raise the heat for the next couple and it is done. We keep constant smoke for the whole time. Check the internet or talk to your butcher for the final internal temp of the sausage so it is fully cured and ready to eat the next day.

Good luck.

I have been using my Bradley smoker and it seems to heat up very slow. Is that normal? 250 after 2 hours of smoking. Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks Keith

Professiolal Edge, to smoke at 250 is rather high. I do not let mine get above 180 at all. If it does go above 180 i have other reasons for that. Slower the better!

If your temp gets to high you'll melt the fat and then drip. End resul,t you lost your sausage.

Sorry about that guys...I should have said from the beginning that I was doing some chickens and it required the temp to be 250 for 4 hours. It just seemed like it took a long time to get to the temp even on high.

They did turn out awesome though.

Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.

    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
