After 1 hr , added tray with LJ maple / hickory / cherry pellets ( microwaved )
Temp bumped to 150°
1 hr bumped to 160°, quite cool out so bumped to 165°
5 hrs in temps looking good

Temp of sausage to 145°, held for 45 mins.
Total time this go-around was a little over 8 hrs ( because of colder temps and wind )
Let cool, and fridge overnight.

Thanks Adam, it has become my favorite.

That maybe about all the longer it does last. We go through a lot and I give to some friends.

Thanks. . .
Dang cold temps with heat running heavily, hard to keep decent humidity in the house. 1 full container every night.

Thanks Jeff, one of the easier sausages to make actually.
Winterrider Winterrider , what do you like about muslin bags instead of the typical cellulose?
Muslim bags can be packed tighter and they take on smoke better.
Man that looks so good!
Thanks Brian. . .

Thanks, it will go pretty quickly.

That looks delicious. The amount of AmesPhos has a pretty big spread, what amount did you use? And did you dissolve it in your garlic water?
