I am somewhat new to sausage making and yesterday I did my first ever batch of smoked sausage links. Last year my wife bought a Gander Mountain chipotle kit and I blew off making it till my neighbor gave me a pack of chipotle venison sausage and I really liked it.

I mixed it 50/50 venison/pork and ground twice. I fought my smoker all morning but overall I think they came out ok. I don't like the grill marks on them so I need to make some rods to hang them next time. They came out a little darker than expected and the casings dried out more than I expected although when I cooked a link for lunch they are juicy on the inside. I used pecan wood for smoke.

Good job on your first batch. You're hooked now. So much better than store bought.
Thanks. I've smoked summer sausage and snack sticks but this was my first batch of link. I usually make my link sausage fresh and wanted to try something different.
 
They look good to me, what kind of smoker?

Thanks! It's a reverse flow vault type smoker. Not sure how to link it but there is a thread about it in here. I tried using a stoker to control temp but I think it caused me more grief than doing without it.

Thanks for the encouragement. The sausage was a home run with the guys at work yesterday. They were asking where I bought the sausage so they could buy some themselves.
