    All you should have to do is get it there. You want to pull it at 156 according to the directions I have on the sausage.

    Pull it as soon as it reaches that temp and give a cold water shower or ice to stop the temp form rising once you pull it.......Good Luck

    I think most call to shower it in cold water until the internal temp is around 100 or so. This stops the cooking process. Hang at room temp to bloom.

    I did not understand what the heck bloom was but it does make sausage look good.

    Bloom is the colour that develops when beef is cut on the block. It is the combination of oxygen and hemoglobin that produces it.
