First time sausage making

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Quick question. I got the fibrous casings. Will the smoke penetrate that casing or do I need to poke small holes throughout the casing. Thanks for your time.

You would have to check what kind of fibrous casings you purchased, most of them come pre-stuck.

You'll be fine with those.

Welcome to the dark side.  Once you get going with sausages, you'll never be able to stop!

Smoked up some summer sausage with fibrous casing a few weeks back.  

Smoke penetration was great.  Taste was even better. :)

If it was me this is how I do mine,,

 

pre heat smoker 130

put in sausage - NO smoke-run for about 2hrs till dry.

3rd hr bump to 140 and add smoke. 

every hour bump smoker 10* till smoker temp is 170,

pull summer sausage when IT of sausage gets to 160* 

(I pull mine at 152*) 

Put in Ice bath to stop cooking till IT Temp ins 90-110

Let bloom on counter for 2hrs, then to reefer of a overnight stay, slice and vac pac next day. 

 

 

A full smoker is a happy smoker - Stay happy  

 

Let us know how it comes out
