Sausage is in the smoker

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by fire in the hole, May 8, 2012.

  1. I seem to remember that when sausage reaches 140 IT..........it's time to pull and submerge in ice water to cool down. Is that correct???? I am almost 1 hr into my smoke.

    Thanks,

    I always went with 150 IT.  Then ice bath.   You are talking about pork sausage?  Chicken would be a little higher, like 160-165. 
     
  3. Yup. It's a polish sausage I have in the smoker.

    Thanks Diesel

    If you pull at 149 and hang at room temp it will IT by itself to 150-152  (dont cold water it)
     
  5. Opps!!!! I pulled at 151 IT and immediately into ice water. Hope I didn't screw up. I'll be sampling it here a little later........with fingers crossed.
