Smoked Alligator Sausage ?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Okay everybody, I have about 15 lbs of alligator tail meat coming to me next week from a friend. I am going to make some smoked sausage with it. I have a couple of questions for anybody that may have done this. I have made plenty of smoked sausage with venison using a ratio 70/30 deer to pork. I am wondering if I should use the same ratio with alligator / pork. Any Suggestions ?

I have done this with gator 10lbs. I cut in 3 lbs of brisket trim .


Your 15 i would cut in 5 lbs of beef trim fat or some butt.


I did 5 lbs of rattler a couple years ago and used chicken thigh meat.

I have a friend coming over with some to smoke today. Never smoked sausage before.


I believe they are about 5/8" diameter.


How long, what temp?


Thanks for any help.

Dang Marlin that's a lot of gator.


What temp do you take the tail meat to so it's tender & not rubbery?

post #12 of 16

Only had the sausage and a few pieces of tail to try. I didn't check the temp, just went with when they looked done and tested them.


It is really good. A local meat market made the sausage.


About 3 hours at 200 to 225.

To be honest, I have eaten so little gator sausage over my lifetime I couldn't tell you real good gator sausage or bad gator sausage.  I know that at SELA BobDog will get us some real good gator sausage.  I'm looking forward to it also.
