Yes Sir ! when I hit about 150deg it started smoking. It took a total of about 5.5 hrs when internal hit 160deg then gave it an ice bath. Tried it today and I was very impressed with the flavor. It took a 12 pack of heffe weiss with my buddies to wipe out a half stick! Now on to snack sticks - thanks for the help !
Best smoke flavor
When I smoke summer sausage the casing prevents the heavy smoke flavor from penetrating meat. I aciedently broke one open the other day, I removed casing and smoked with the rest. the one without casing had amazing smoke flavor!! Can I get that smoke into sausage that is incased?
Which casings are you using when making Summer Sausage? I use the 2x12 prestuck mahogany fibrous casings and they work just fine. I haven’t had any issues with the meat taking the smoke.
thank you for your response. I believe I will order some fibrous casings.
