First Fatties with a twist - turkey sausage

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

We eat a lot of turkey sausage and I was pondering a fattie and thought, why not use turkey sausage. I’m fortunate to have a poultry processor nearby who makes some of the best sausage from free range organic turkeys and it can be purchased in bulk (without casings). I figured I would make two since I have the smoker fired-up.

 

One was a chorizo turkey sausage stuffed with goat cheese and fresh basil. The other was a regular mild sausage stuffed with feta cheese and spinach. Smoked them on average at 250 for 3 hours. The internal temp was 173 when I pulled them. I used mostly apple wood with a small amount of oak.

 

Here is the sausage rolled out in a ziplock bag.

All rolled-up in their bacon blankets. Not the best at weaving yet but it worked ok.

Done and ready to slice.

These were delicious. The sausage was slightly dry but I think that is the nature of poultry. The next time I may try a bit lower smoking temp and a longer smoke time. But, I have no complaints - quite satisfied with the results thanks to all the tips on this forum.
