Southern Hot Links
Monday, 26 May 2008
DescriptionHere is our recipe for a typically Southern sausage made with ground pork and lamb. For this recipe you will need a meat grinder with a sausage funnel, a tube that fits over the end of the grinder for filling sausage casings. You can also use a mixer such as KitchenAid, which has a sausage stuffer attachment. When stuffing, fill the casings until the sausage segments are about 4 inches long, then twist the casing and tie the sausages off with string. Then cut the casing off with scissors. Serve the links on buns with raw onions and barbecue sauce along with a macaroni salad and baked beans.

In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Using a meat grinder with a stuffing attachment, stuff the sausage casings and tie them off. Build a fire in the smoker, place the sausages on the grill in the smoker, and smoke at 200 to 220 degrees F. for about 3 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees F. Remove from the smoker and serve with the barbecue sauce.
