Finished my batch of Andouille and decided to start a fresh thread. Came out good and I even experimented with the soy protein.

I added 1/3 cup to half (5lbs) and it seems to be "plumper" . Don't know if it will affect the taste but I would not think so being that it was such a small amount.

I have documented with pictures on my Google Albums. Should be able to see them.

Here is the final shot while I am waiting for them to bloom.

It does seem like the best color I have gotten with Andouille. Don't know that I did anything different.

One of these days I am going to learn how to make pretty links. They still taste good and when they are cut up in Gumbo noone knows what they looked like.

I usually get better color by smoking at lower temps for a longer period of time.  Did you change any of that?  I like what you ended up with. 

What type of wood did you use and how long at what temps did they smoke?

I use mostly pecan. My neighbor had a very large pecan tree cut down and I have a ton of wood. Might have had a couple of pieces of oak in the bucket too.

I started out low 120-140 but it is warm here today (75-80) and the temp got up to 160+ for a while. I usually raise the temp slowly anyway but this got up there after about an hour or so. Wound up at 180 for an hour or so to finish off. Total time was about 5 hours to get to 150 + IT.

I use pecan too. I am going to get some sugar cane to add soon.

I run the temp up a little every couple hours. When the amazen is done I crank it to 180 until it hits 155 IT

 Yours looks great..I agree with the link comment too. It is getting easier the more I do.

Couple days in the fridge it will be even better tasting.

If you don't like the looks of those links, send them to me for a closer inspection and analysis.

Done.

I hear Mr. Gumbo and Ms Jambalaya calling. Maybe even my buddy Red Beans wanting a taste.

I have a feeling if you dropped any that off I'd have a really hard time saving any for later! Sausage looks great.
