SausageFest

Morning!!

First time for a lot of things!!

Up heya in Maine, we have Lobstah Fests and Clam Fests, so why not have a Sausage Fest?

Tomorrow afternoon at 2 starts the 3rd annual SausageFest.  The garden trains will be running, The 4 kegs of really good microbrew and homebrew get tapped, the sausage hot tub gets filled with onions, peppers, butter and beer.  Oh and the propane grill gets lit.

But, I really want to try and smoke some sausages.  Ha ha!!

I just purchased the Digi Q and am staring at it on my desk.

Anyone want to point me int he right direction on how to smoke the sausages?

Or should I do something else?

Oh the sausages for the BGE are Ghost Chili and Double Coronary (Bacon/Pork)

Thanks and of any of you live around here, you are more than welcome to swing by.

    If the sausages are not cured you have to cook them over 200* dome to an internal of 165*. If they are cured you can cold smoke.

    And I thought he was referring to the"what is wrong with you people" thread.

    But seriously, I like smoking the Johnsonville brats from Costco. Very simple and they take in a lot of smoke. You can rub with your favorite pork rub or leave plain. 275-300 dome to about 165 like LS says.

    I agree totally with @Little_Steven. Are they uncooked sausages, or pre-cooked? Was a cure added to the meat? You can cook them at 350 with wood for smoke, but unless you know about the sausages and what you are doing, I would stay away from cooking them at low temps (like under 170F) for hours on hours. You don't want to mess with botulism. Too long in the danger zone with no cure = sick people and possible hospital trip.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Portland Maine and yes we do get a lot of second glances about "SausageFest"!

    There will be tons of ladies in attendance

    They are uncooked and I am thinking 220 for about an hour and a half.

    Sound good?

    I was just upta Bah Hahbah last week. Ayuh

    Just did a test run on some Johnsonville Bratwursts. 220 dome temp and 167 sausage, I took a little over 2 hours.

    My outlaws were impressed.

    But, we did tap one of the kegs earlier!!
