    Here they are going in the smoke. Using Pecan wood for this smoke.

    130 for 1 hour no smoke
    140 for 1 hour with smoke
    150 for 1 hour with smoke
    160 for 1 hour no smoke
    170 for 5.5+ hours until I hit an IT of 152.

    Cooling down

    Close up

    Money shot. These are really good!

    Thanks for looking.  [​IMG]

    Any idea how this jalapeno mix compares to using raw fresh jalapeno's? They look good.

    This was my first time making anything like this, so I don't have an answer. But I am going to try a homemade mix with fresh jalapeno's next. Also make the link longer, so they fit on a hot dog bun.

    Cool you will have to make  note in your next post which kind of jalapeno you like better, powder mix or fresh raw.

    Are those green things in the meat dehydrated jalapeno that came in the package or is it some other spice?

    Those are the dehydrated jalapeno's Ross. The mix does offer some heat.
    I'll be sure to take note between the fresh and dehyrated the next time. I'm sure fresh will be much better hands down.
  16. I am going to attempt a very similar recipe with an 80/20 Antelope/pork fat mixture over the next few days. I am going to do 15 Lbs of regular sausage (Texas style smoked links),  7.5 Lbs of jalapeno, and 7.5 Lbs of chocolate habanero links smoking with a pecan/mesquite mixture.

    After it's all said and done I'll post photos and results.

    Hey would I need to cure this even if I smoke it right away?

    YES !!!!!!.... When smoking meats, it is a very good idea to use cure.... without it, you may be creating botulism....

    Okay, thanks Dave. One more question; do you always use the same cure for sausage?

    Cure #1, Prague Powder, Pink salt..... all are the same... 6.25% Nitrite in salt...
