Hey all. I'm a huge fan of Famous Dave's Hot Links. Anyone have any idea what they are or where they can be acquired? I'm fairly new to smoking. I don't even know where to start.... can those be bought or do they have to be made? If bought, where? If made, anyone know of a recipe?

Thanks in advance.

Nahh. Cant seem to find anything online and nobody here responded. I've asked at the restaurant and they flat out refuse to tell me lol. Anyone have any suggestions on any other brand of hot links or sausage that are good for smoking?
 
Seems like every region of the country has there own twist to hot links. Here is a sausage forum if you want to try making your own. There has been several discussions lately about the base recipe or country where the links originated.

 
I have one in my town but has been a LOOONG time since I had it. I recall liking them. My bet the sausage itself is a basic kielbasa formula with some added heat. My guess would be they use their Hot and Sassy sauce in it, something like that. From here they cut up, slathered with sauce, and grilled.

I'm curious what type of sausage they use... Maybe they make them themselves? They call them hot links. I dont know the difference between hot links and sausage. They're longer than italian sausage you would buy in the supermarket. They're cut like kielbasa..... each end is sliced, not tied off. Sorry, I'm a newbie to grilling/smoking. Huge fan of Famous Dave's hot links though and want to be able to replicate. Here's a pic of them below....

I bet you are right. Just a kielbasa spiced up. How could you go wrong? So simple and flavorful.
