Sausage for my first smoke!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

So I am planning on doing my first smoke tonight (weather permitting) its snowing right now.  I have read some of the previous threads and from what I am reading I have some ????  

 

Can I just go to butcher and pick up some Hungarian/ red hots or anything that needs to be cooked? I am guessing because I am cooking in the smoker I need to get them to a higher temp? 160 internal?

 

Should I use water and smoke just water?

 

What temp should I be smoking at?

 

 

If I missed anything you think I need to know please let me know.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

No matter where you cook them, you need 165*F for fresh raw sausage and at least 140*F for smoked sausage.160 internal?

 

Should I use water and smoke just water? I'm not sure what you are asking here, but you can put the Sausage right on the rack or in a pan if you wish...If your smoker has a Water Pan, you can fill it if you wish.

 

What temp should I be smoking at? 225*F

 

 

If I missed anything you think I need to know please let me know. Don't forget some Qview.

 

 

Thanks, You are welcome...JJ

If your going to get pre made sausage that has not been cured for smoking then you will need a heat of 190 and above not exceeding 225. You can apply smoke to this and a water pan if you like.

 

Tip

 

Pre heat your smoker with the water pan before adding your sausage.

 

Qview is posting pics.
