Hot Links

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

I was craving a good hot link sandwich so i decide to make my own hot link. Ive made hot links before but it was a slow low smoke. Now these i dried out at 120 but cooked them at 250 for about 45min or till they hit 160. here are a few pics.

Now these are not cured sausages!! since i wasn't going to cook them at a low temp there is no need to cure them.

Your going to love it. you cant find store bought hot links this juicy!! besides the store bought ones are made with to many fillers.

Those look great. 

I was wondering did you have any smoke going when you cooked them?

If so what type of wood.
