Roasted Garlic…… Need I say more!! How about a roasted garlic slow cooked and smoked pork sausage. My mouth is salivating as I am typing this!!
This is a very easy sausage to make, as long as you follow standard sausage making rules (see below). The amount of garlic can be increased based off of your particular tastes. The real trick to making this sausage come out amazing is the cooking schedule. Start low (to dry out your sausage), then slowly bring the temperature of your smoker up. This will keep all that flavorful fat inside the sausage giving you a juicy bit and a great “SNAP”.
Follow basic smoked sausage preparation practices when making this sausage.
- Clean and Sanitize all of your equipment.
- Keep your meat and grinder parts super cold (below 34F) at all times
- Any liquid that is added to the mince needs to be ice cold
- Mix your very chilled meat and seasonings till the mince becomes very tacky
- Stuff the mince into sausage casings and prick out any air pockets
- Refrigerate your sausage overnight to allow the cure to work
- The next day follow this smoking schedule
-Start at 110F – 120 for 1.5 hours, with your vents wide open (this dries the sausage)
-Increase the temp to 125F for 1 hour and begin to add your favorite smoke
-Increase to 135F for 1 hour
-Increase to 155F for 1.5 hours
-Increase to 175F till the internal temp reaches 145F
