Tonight is a milestone. First sausage and first smoke.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Made 2 batches of sausage tonight, some Jalapeno, Habanero and cheese chicken sausage and some basil, sun dried tomato and cheese chicken sausage. I have been struggling at keeping my smoker between 160-165 but I am managing. Excited to see the out come. Someone told me I should post pics of my sausage, Q something or the other, as soon as I figure out how I will.

 

First attempt at sausage!

First time smoking meat!

Darren, morning and welcome to the forum....   Yeah, pictures are very important.... (Q-Views).....  reading about food is one thing.....  Seeing it in pictures is a whole other thing and a big deal....  Get handy with the camera....

A win and a fail all stuffed into one.

 

Sausage came out great! An even stuffing, great flavor, nice moisture!

 

It all went down hill with the smoke. At first I was to hot at around 200° then I couldn't get the temps above 150°. I moved the smoker into a brick corner and I gained control of the temps. In the end I over smoked it and gave it way to pungent of a smoke flavor. Live and learn.

Glad to hear that the sausage came out good but sad to hear you weren't happy with the final result.  Do you have any pics of the sausage?  What wood did you use for smoking?  Don't get discouraged - at least you now have a good reference point for your next batch  thumb1.gif

Maybe a few regrets but not discouraged at all. Seeing it was my first time I wish I had only smoked a few links to get a feel for it. I used soaked apple wood. I will be at it again! I am hooked!
