We are smoking summer sausage--3" casings.  How many hours of smoking at 175 to get the IT of 145?  Seems like taking forever.

You really need to get to an IT of 152°-156° for ground meat sausage that has cure in it. For fresh sausage that has no cure you need to take the sausages to an IT of 165°

Yes it will take a long time to get to the finish IT when your pit temp is only 20° above the internal temp that you are trying to reach. I always plan on summer sausage taking 16-20+ hours when I make it.
