I smoked these chubs for 8-12 hrs at 120F - 150F, and then finished them in a hot water bath at 200F, targeting an IT of 152F.


I really like the poach method, main reason is it heats the whole sausage fully, evenly and at a very controlled method that is easy to monitor.


As soon as the target IT is met it's quickly into an ice water bath down to 90F IT, then pat dry and hang a day or two to bloom. Really turns out perfect, and easy too.  Thumbs Up

I see more people poaching at the the end and getting good results...This has not been the norm for summer sausages. It still has to be done properly. Raising the temp too fast from too low of an IT temp can cause the center to become grayish in color and mushy. I recommend sausage be brought to 140 then parboiled to 152-160 for the best results if poaching....
