deanlorensen Okay, I’d not add humidity during the first hour. That is supposed to be a drying stage, it isn’t going to single handily fix your issue but it will absolutely help. I would also try following the smoke schedule we did here https://meatgistics.waltonsinc.com/topic/2682/wild-game-cajun-goose-sausage and use sure gel or super bind as a binder. Carrot Fiber isn’t a good choice for what you are trying to accomplish here.
Glad you are getting good use of the site, it’s what we made it for!
