    Pets'R'us's Note:

    We used to eat this sausage on our holidays in Portugal. This recipe comes closest to how I remember it tasting. I do not have a smoker so the liquid smoke is a good solution. Freezes well. If I can get casings I make the sausage but as patties or burgers this is great too. No standing time included.

      Excellent! The spicing results in a very flavorful but not overly peppery sausage. I trimmed the butt very well--so my sausage was a bit dry when grilled, but we loved the flavor. Made a terrific base for pasta sauce, too! I was a little unsure of using liquid smoke--but it isn't made of bizarre chemicals as I had feared. Thanks, Pets!

      The flavors are very good - even when freshly made. I used 2 Tblsp of Spanish smoked paprika and 1 Tblsp of Spanish smoked, hot paprika with excellent results. I didn't need to use liquid smoke or the cayenne (both of which are very easy to overdo). I didn't have the white pepper, so might be a little different. Overall an excellent linguica recipe.

      Loved this.. I can't find Portuguese sausages in my area and I don't get back to Rhode Island often enough to sate my craving. Thank you :)
