First of all, I wish you all a Happy 4th of July weekend!
A question for any sausage makers here. I am wondering about trying to make summer sausage and snack sticks. The weather here is going to be in or near the 90's the next few days, possibly
a week. Was thinking of trying to make some sausage, but curious if such high external temps would cause problems.
I have a homebuilt smoke box, insulated, out of wood that is 4'x4'x3' and I use a propane banjo type heater, if that makes a difference. Thanks for any and all help.
Thanks for the replies, greatly appreciated. Just wanted to make sure before taking a chance and ruining any product. Will post pics and report when I do.

I agree it shouldn't be a problem, but you could always do it at night, or my preference is to get it started early in the morning before the sun come up.
