I got some sausages smokin as I type out this little note and there is a big pail with 2 chickens and 2 cornish game hens submerged in a lovely little brine. Then there is the pail with the two slabs of ribs and pork hocks gettin real friendly in another brine. We get to put all that in the smoker in the mornin. For those following the apple sauce/pork sausage dilema...........My buddy has finally got the recipe for the sauce and now (once i get it)we can move on to step two. Posting the sausage recipe. Shouldn't be too much longer.
