If they are all gone by the time lunch is over, I'll know they are alright, if not, then I'll keep working on the recipe.

Victims is the right term. From the looks of those, anyone who eats them is doomed to a great meal!

Chef Willie, half of them are your texas links recipe, the other half is just ground pork with my BBQ sauce mixed in ( what the heck, had to try it)  I belive yours are the winner .

No more pics though, all gone in about 15 minutes.  Thats how it is around here.

That's why I made them hot, if I cant light a fire under their But's, maybe I can put one in their belly.

Well , I did get some feed back.

On the hot links, half said the spice was just right and liked the heat, but then you have the ones that said they were way too hot.........so what do you do? right?  Cant win them all over.

On the ones I just put BBQ sauce in......I had cooked one in the oven to try it out, and it turned out o/k.  But on the grill,  ...I didn't really care for them. We mave have over cooked them, I dont know, but to me they were not all that great.

May favorite so far has been the German sausage, that I smoke on low in my MES, then grill later. They look better that way, stay juicier, and even though some complained that they were not spicey enough, ....I like the way you can taste the meat better.

I think what I will try ...is to just make them all like that, then when I grill them , I can take some and shake a spicey rub on them while grilling for the ones that like them hot.  I've done this in the past with Knockwurst I used to get from the meat market. Stubbs had a mustard rub shaker that I used to get , and I would sprinkle them down with that while grilling to spice them up a little bit. They were always a big hit. And I've always sprinkled the italian sausage with my rub when doing smoker cookouts.

One thing though, on the casings, these were way better than the "home pack" casings that I had used before. The size was way more consitent, it was way easier to stuff do to not having to keep stopping to load another casing onto tube, and they were way tenderer when eating.   The home pack ones were kind of tough. I got these from 'The Sausage Maker", the prices were , I feel, very reasonable considering shipping is free, and they were delivered very well packaged.  I placed another order the other day and have some soy protein concentrate on the way, along with some of their house spices to try out.  I'll let you all know how they turn out.

Did yall notice that there were something like 47 sausages on that grill.   That thing does steaks real nice to.  Load it up with 20lbs of kinsford and you can grill like a fool!

Wow those folks is slow! My automatic response would be....."It was good but... I feel that more testing would no doubt yeild a more through evaluation......." <chuckles>

Of course I bet the problem was with the ones who thought them hot, was their ample frosty cold refreshments available? A fresh tapped keg always works wonders.
