    i saw a video where hand rolled sausages were wrapped in corn husks, tied both ends and smoked.

    I did these two years ago to take hunting. The corn husks give a good flavor.

    Here is my recipe for that. It's great I always get rave reviews. It's a bit on the spicy side though. You can peel the husks back and eat them like a corn dog or something.

    Jims Sausage in corn husk:

    4lbs Hot Italian Sausage

    ½ cup Jalapeños diced

    ½ cups Red Bell Pepper diced

    1T Fennel seed lightly ground (leave some whole)

    1T Smoked Paprika

    3T Cumin seed lightly ground (leave some whole)

    1+T Mustard Seed whole

    1t Onion Powder

    1t Cayenne Pepper

    1t Pepper

    3T Cilantro dried or fresh

    2T Red wine vinegar

    1t Coriander ground

    1t Garlic Powder

    ½ to 1C ice water

    ¼ lb high temp Jalapeño cheese cubes

    1 package Corn Husks for Tamales

    Mix all except the husks to a sausage mixture and let rest for a few hours or overnight.

    Soak corn husks in hot water for 1hr.

    Roll sausage mixture in husks tying ends with strips of husk

    Smoke at 225 until internal temp of 155* 2-3 hrs? Keep warm or refrigerate and reheat as needed.

    Ya.  I ran out of casings and remember seeing a DDD epi. where a guy and KC did this.  I tried it and was really great.

    I've seen it, but never have done it yet.

    They look better than those over-sized, fat, masa-laden tamales some folks like?

    Good luck and good smoking.
