The verdict: best sausage I ever cooked from a technical standpoint.. The snap was great. There was some color but it wasn't charred. I will definitely be reverse searing my sausage from now on.
I know this is probably old news to a lot of you who have more experience than I do but for me it's a revelation that I'm excited about. You learn something new every day.
What are your favorite methods for grilling or cooking your homemade sausage? Do you treat smoked or precooked sausage differently than fresh? Take it easy!
