I picked up some Cavanaugh's smoked sausage at Sams for gumbo my wife was making with one of her students. Yesterday while smoking briskets and chicken for the weekend I decided to throw one on the smoker just to see. I left it on about 3 hours at 225. Came out great so I took the other 3 and put them on too. This may become one of my favorite snacks.

Please describe this sausage. Flavor (hot/mild/spices/etc), casing (tender/tough/pork/sheep). My family is fond of Conecuh sausage, but, it is getting harder to find. Might need a sub.
Glad to see you are still smoking.

I will get more when I go to Sam's next - I shoot for a "Spicy Smoked Saugage". I rebag in Ziplocks after I open them, so do not have the original packaging. The casing is probably a little more tough than the Conecuh, but still good. We had some for breakfast over the weekend and the Mrs. accused me of adding spices to it (for the record, I did not).

Mack, Summer is correct. It has a little bite to it but not so hot that anyone would be offended. The natural casing is relatively tough but I had no problem biting through it in a sandwich. I would suggest cutting slits in the casing when you put it on the smoker so more of the fat will render out. It is a pork/beef combo sausage. I was very happy that when I got back from a weekend in the mountains my son had not eaten it all! Now I'm tempted to fire the smoker back up and do a couple of bags, then freeze it for when I don't want to wait. I haven't slowed down much on smoking. Probably every other weekend at least. I keep getting orders from friends for briskets and now whole rib eyes.

Are you still using the MB electric smoker?? If so, and without big problems, the volume of meat you put thru it is a testimonial to the value/performance. What say you??

Mack, This one has held up very well. I think they have worked out the bugs. Over the past year I would guess I have smoked over 25 times without a hitch. I think for someone who wants ease of use at an entry level price, and isn't planning on going on the competition circuit, I would recommend the Masterbuilt electric smoker. My methods, using the Texas crutch, are not Kosher by some standards, but the results speak for themselves. I have yet to not have a repeat "customer".

They are excellent and come in "polish", "spicy", and "smoked" at the Sam's I frequent. Package says "natural" casing; it has a nice crisp bite. They are made from a pork and beef mixture. I like the "spicy" option after it's been slow smoked for a few hours. I've had Conecuh a few times and I like these as much or better, but sausages come in many styles and taste is personal. Give it a try.
