What is the temp of the smoker?

When I am doing it I usually go over several hours. I start the smoker at 100 then increase every hour by 10 degrees until I get to 170 then I wait for the sausage to rise. Depending on how thick the sausage is it can take 10+ hours.

Pictures?

They look good.

What kind of casings did you use? Dry Packed?

Also did you put them into a water bath when done?

Also let them bloom over night and try them tomorrow. They will be much better.
