Dextrose is a sugar.  No surprise there.

 

About 70% as sweet as regular sugar.

 

That can vary if using raw or refined sugar.

 

Maybe Joe or one of our other sausage gurus will check in.

 

If not, I would ballpark replacing about 1/2 of the recipe amount of dextrose with regular sugar?

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Yeah 1/2 would be good, as long as its not a fermented sausage.

Dan is one of our sausage gurus.

 

Thanks for weighing in Dan.

 

Good luck and good smoking.

To expand on this, dextrose and table sugar should not be used as a replacement for each other. When making a fermented sausage, the chemistry is of utmost importance.  With a cured sausage, less of a difference, with a fresh sausage, even less.  But having said that, if a recipe called for dextrose, even if a fresh sausage, there is probably a reason. If you can, don;t substitute.  You can order and get dextrose in 2 days.
