a little unsure

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
If I dry my summer sausage or linked sausage hanging then smoke them laid on their side will I be able to get it smoked right or am I better off not cutting corners and hang em both to dry and smoke. Any help is appreciated

They will smoke fine. You might get marks on one side though. That is only if you care more what they look like than taste like.

As timberjet said. It will work just fine but leave marks. 

I look forward to seeing you sausage.

Happy smoken.

My last batch of kielbasa I smoked laying on the rack, and I actually liked it better; much easier to deal with. I ended up with very light grill marks, which from an aesthetic standpoint I feel are much more acceptable on a sausage than the unsmoked contact points I was getting from hanging.

Laying down will work, however I find I can fit a lot more in my smoker if they're hanging.

Yeah, I had fully intended to hang my sausages but found the height of my smoker is a challenge so wind up laying them out. I do spray the racks well with some Pam, or similar product to avoid the 'stick' that seems to occur after a long time in there. Just keep them separate so they don't have pale marks where smoke doesn't get to......Willie
