Smoked Johnsonville Hot Italian Sausage

  1. I've seen alot of home-made sausage smoking done here but i decided to go the easy route and purchase some store bought sausage links!..

    To my suprise these things turned out pretty great with a decent amount of smoke flavor.. I think my new amazn smoker helped!

    Well no amazin smoker for me, just the GOSM propane conversion. Just finished up some Real Tree Hot Sausage smoked with Cherry wood. Took around 1 1/2 hours @ 225º.

    Hey! Good job there, Edmonds! Always glad to see more smoke from our neck of the woods.  There's plenty of good butchers in our area who make sausages  - go find a favorite and you'll really be glad!  I used to drive to Silvana Meats from Everett just for their fresh bratwurst. I want to make my own sausage, but until I get around to it, I LOVE my butcher's! Cheers!

    Once you start to see them wrinkle, they usually are done.

    I was thinking about trying this and decided to look and see what others have done, glad I did. This forum has lots of good tips, I thank everyone who shares!

    Has anyone stuck a meat probe in one for temp or just watch em to not dry them out, but still get a little smoke flavor from them?

    I usually stick an instant read in one down the middle before consuming just to be on the safe side....looks can be deceiving

    Not sure, but if those are the ones Mrs Bear gets, I love 'em!!

    I finish them on the grill, until they crack all around.

    Then I take them inside, and line em up on a bunch of paper towels, and roll them back & forth to suck up a mess of grease.

    Them's some good tasting brats, for store-bought!!!

    X2 -- & I don't have any problems drying them out.  If you're worried about it, put a pan of water in the smoker to keep up the moisture.
