checking internal temps on sausage

  1. is there a better way to check the internal temps on sausage while smoking, with a quick read pin. other than pricking a hole in the casting and letting all those good juices run out, that is the reason why you put it in a casting anyway.

    Danny I put the probe in the sausage then hang them.I do not have any of that nice juicy fat come out.

    The probe on the left is in the Kielbasa.

  3. I use either my I Grill or "Taylor" type external thermometers. so I stick probes in the various sausages (from the top down, now edited)  and then you don't need to pull them until your done. then no need to worry about leaking.

    I hang sausage and stick it top down. Stays in start to finish unless going in a water bath to finish or cool. Not much is lost...JJ
  5. Thanks JJ for the great catch on removing prior to water bath and reminding me I had not clarified where the probes were placed. I have since edited my reply.
