Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

    @Griffin

    For every 5 pounds:

    1 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
    1 Tbsp Paprika
    1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh Garlic
    1/8 Cup Fresh Ground Black Pepper
    3 Tbsp Kosher Salt
    1 Tbsp Fresh Thyme leaves, chopped
    1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
    Cure #1

    The grind - half 1/4" cubes, other half course grind

    I'm letting it cure of a week in the fridge after cold smoking.  It should dry out a bit.  Probably going to hot smoke some of it.

    Thanks @nolaegghead. Andouille's been on my list. Not sure when I'm gonna do another batch of sausage, but I might give yours a shot.

    Not a lot of cured sausages out there.  This is one of them.  This sausage would probably benefit from a month of aging.

    After one week of curing in the fridge.  They are cold smoked. 

    I food saver packed everything and it's all in the freezer (except for the stuff I gave away).
