Total Time: 1-2 hours


  • 3762 grams Clod, Brisket and Beef Fat Trimmings – 75/25 Beef to Fat Ratio

Instructions for Prep

  • Cube meat and fat – place in freezer 30 minutes prior to grinding – coarse grind using a meat grinder

  • Add spices, binder and liquid – mix with hands for 5 to 10 minutes until it becomes tacky

  • Using a stuffer – stuff hog casings with sausage

  • Let rest in refrigerator – on wire racks – for at least 2 hours to help dry out the casings

The Cook!

  1. Run offset between 180 – 200 degrees –

  2. Either hang sausage in smoker or place directly on rack – smoke until the internal temperature of the sausage is at least 150 degrees – should take approximately 60 to 90 minutes – if you are smoking them on a rack, flip them over after 30 minutes or so

  3. Once sausage reaches an internal temperature of 150 degrees – remove from smoker and place them in a bucket with water and ice for 15 to 20 minutes to stop the cooking process

  4. Remove sausage from bucket and allow them to dry on a wire rack for 60 to 120 minutes
