    Quick question. I got the fibrous casings. Will the smoke penetrate that casing or do I need to poke small holes throughout the casing. Thanks for your time.

    You would have to check what kind of fibrous casings you purchased, most of them come pre-stuck.

    Smoked up some summer sausage with fibrous casing a few weeks back.  

    Smoke penetration was great.  Taste was even better. :)

    If it was me this is how I do mine,,

    pre heat smoker 130

    put in sausage - NO smoke-run for about 2hrs till dry.

    3rd hr bump to 140 and add smoke. 

    every hour bump smoker 10* till smoker temp is 170,

    pull summer sausage when IT of sausage gets to 160* 

    (I pull mine at 152*) 

    Put in Ice bath to stop cooking till IT Temp ins 90-110

    Let bloom on counter for 2hrs, then to reefer of a overnight stay, slice and vac pac next day. 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker - Stay happy  

    Let us know how it comes out
