I see this is your first post. Would you stop by roll call so everyone can give you a proper SMF welcome.

If you smoke it you will have to get it out of the danger zone 40° - 140° in 4 hours. So it will take a lite smoke,

Happy smoken.

Nasty stuff (bacteria and such) loves the 40 to 140 degree range, and leaving the food between those two temperatures for more than 4 hours can make food inedible.  If smoking sausage with no cure in them, be sure to have the smoker up to 250 degrees and smoke them fast.
