Im smoking my first summer sausage today and wondering if these temps will work
stuffed last night now out of fridge for 2 hrs to come to room temp then to smoker at these temps
130 for 1-1.5 hrs no smoke
140 for 2 hrs w/smoke
150 for 2 hrs smoke opt...check IT of meat..smoke opt
160 for 2 hrs..check IT again...smoke opt
170 for 2-3 hrs check IT again. You should be in the high 130 to low 140s here.
If neede to reach the meat IT of between 150-152 bump heat to 175. Try not to exceed 180.
When you have reached target IT, a cold water bath is your call.
