The numbers I see are all over the place for link sausage. I have books that say to smoke for 2-3 hours, but I'm reading threads on here where people are smoking sausage up to 20 hours! I'm doing a bunch of sausage this weekend, some link and some 3" summer sausage in the mahogany casings. At what point is too much smoke too much? Or should I just follow the 40 to 140 within 4 hours rule, and keep an eye on them after that? Once they reach the color I want go ahead and pull them?
The more I read and research, the more I lose faith in what I thought I knew! Thanks!!
