    While perusing recipes on a slow day at work, I found this
    It looked interesting, so I gave it a try.
    5# pork shoulder
    40 grams Kosher
    1 tsp #1
    1tbs ground Ginger
    1tbs ground Mace
    1/2 tbs ground Nutmeg
    3 tbs Minced Garlic
    3 tbs Black Pepper (I used White Pepper instead)
    1/2 cup NFDM (I used 3/4 cup)
    I mixed all spices except for NFDM with the cubed meat, then refrigerated overnight, per intructions
    The next day I mixed the NFDM and then ground all through the course plate and then half through the fine (per instuctions. Never again. What a sticky mess! Always grind then mix, no matter what a Chicago food blogger says...)
    I stuffed into 36/38 pretubed from Syracuse Casing and hung to dry
    Smoked with AMZN tube and pellets slowly to 150IT, water bathed and rehung.
    It was late, so I just tossed them in a brown bag overnight and packaged next day
    They taste really good, kind of like snack sticks on stearoids! A lot of Garlic of course, but you can taste the Ginger. The Nutmeg is hidden. Next time I may back off the Garlic a little and bump up the Nutmeg.
    It goes really well with smoked Baby Swiss and Club Original crackers.Sorry, no plate pic, you'll have to trust me 😀

    Those look great and I love the flavors in that recipe.  I just have two questions for you.  Was there water in the pan?  Just curious if it was because I have read that with sausage the drier environment the better.  I am far from an expert so I was just curious.  Also, I have that same smoker so I was wondering if you use a needle valve to keep the temp that low?

    No water in the pan, work. It's there just to keep anything from falling or dripping on the small hotplate I use for heat. I put the hotplate right over the burner where the chip pan usually sits. No way to get those low temps with the gas. I'm afraid that a needle valve would take the flame so low that it would blow out easily, but I never really tried it, so don't take my word for it. Since I got the stick burner all I use the MB for is sausage and cheese. With the mailbox it's handier than a pocket on a t-shirt ;-)
