I'm looking for a good smoked sausage recipe, like Eckrich. Any suggestions?

  1. I've tried different recipes, and none are what I'm looking for. Would like to find an Eckrich copycat recipe that will be tender, moist, and flavorful,  which is not what I've  found so far.
     
  2. Bonedigger I am looking for the same thing. Have been looking for over a year. If you find a recipe please let me know.

    Can't go wrong with the Texas hot link.. it is a Chef Willie recipe.  Everyone loves this recipe in my group.  Just adjust the cayenne level for the amount of heat.  I even throw some high temp cheese and jalapenos in with the mix.

    TEXAS HOT LINKS

    5 # PORK BUTT
    Beer
    2 Tbl black pepper
    2 Tbl red pepper
    2 Tbl cayenne
    2 Tbl paprika
    3 Tbl kosher salt
    2 Tbl mustard seeds
    ¼ cup garlic, minced
    1 tsp tender quick
    1 tsp ground coriander

    Mix all spices with enough beer to make a slurry. Grind pork through coarse plate. Mix spice slurry well into coarse grind. Grind again through fine plate. Stuff in casing. I did 150 degrees for 1 hour to dry casings, no smoke. Bumped to 200 degrees using 3 rows of pecan dust in AMNS. Pulled at 160 IT.

    This is a combination of a hot sausage and traditional kielbasa recipe.  Sounds pretty good to me. I would do a course grind though. Personal preference.
