Smoking Sausage in a MES

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by smokinpreacher, Jan 7, 2012.

  1. I got a MES a couple weeks ago and have smoked 2 makings of sausage in it.  I have played with the top vent...Is it better to allow it to be open a little or keep it closed?
  2. are you making homemade sausage? or are you cooking an already prepared sausage?
  3. I am making homemade.  I have been setting temp at 160 and removing sausages when internal temp get 152.

    I would keep it open, you want the smoke to be constantly moving
