Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

smoking sausage, what temp and how long?

Today ill be smoking my first sausage.  I bought it from whole foods.  I was thinking about 250-275 for about 2 hours.  Does that sound accurate?  I plan on using apple wood.

My wife, who does not eat pork, prefers turkey sausage.  She does not like much smoke flavor.  Any options for cooking both at same time?  I may just put hers on the gasser.

    I just did some last night. Raised grill at 250 for about 40 minutes. They were juicy and delicious. Read about 190 on the thermapen so more than cooked enough.

    I think if you want to smoke for longer I would go at 200-225.

    Hope that helps!

    I cook them hotter, raised direct.  Maybe 20 - 30 minutes and they are browned and pick up some smoke flavor.  2 hours would seem like a lot  unless you want them really smokey, although it can depend upon what wood you are using. For example, 2 hrs with mesquite would be pretty strong, while an hour with peach would not be as intense.

    Gasser for the turkey is fine given the objectives.
