Okay, this may have been lost in my failed brisket thread, but you NEED to do this if you have a adjustable rig and rig extender.
I didn't even know if it would work, but the results were fabulous and the best store bought sausage I've had off the egg! The smoke flavor was incredible...I think mainly from the fat dripping on the lump. It literally reminded me of a sausage I had from Lockhart as a kid. It was nothing special either, just the Kiolbassa Sausage pack. Not the individual 8 pack, the one big link that is snaked in the package. When I bought them, I saw the creases and it just popped in my head about how I was going to cook them.
Direct over your lump hanging from the rig extender! I've finally used the extender @tjv
and it will be used a hell of a lot more going forward!! B-)
Just make sure to pull them before the casings split too bad. Mine did, but they were awesome! Oh, also, don't have too much lump in the egg. I used the left over lump from a long cook and it was perfect.
Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
