From the "Smokin" cookbook. I particularly like to smoke Italian sausages, both hot and sweet, but you can smoke all kinds of uncooked sausages, including chicken and turkey. Take your pick of mellow wood chips like alder or apple or more assertive woods like hickory or oak. The more heartily your sausages are seasoned and spiced, the more smoke flavor they can handle.
- 15 links sausage (about 3 pounds)
- 1 1⁄2-2 tablespoons wood chips
- Cut the sausages into individual links if necessary so you can arrange them on the smoker rack with some space between each link to allow the smoke to flow. Poke each link in several places with a fork before smoking.
- Smoke the sausages until no trace of pink remains at the center of the sausage, about 25 minutes after closing the stove top smoker lid.
