Traeger Smoked Sausage
Prep time 30 mins
Cook time 2-3 hrs|
Pork to fork wood-fired goodness. Ground pork, onion, garlic and ground mustard pair perfect for this homemade mesquite smoked sausage. You'll never go back to store-bought.
3 lbs GROUND PORK
1/2 tbsp GROUND MUSTARD
1 tbsp ONION POWDER
1 tbsp GARLIC POWDER
1 tsp PINK CURING SALT
1/2 Tbsp SALT
4 tsp BLACK PEPPER
1/2 cup ICE WATER
HOG CASINGS, SOAKED AND RINSED IN COLD WATER
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: SAUSAGE STUFFER
In a medium bowl, combine the meat and seasonings and mix well. Add ice water to meat and mix with hands working quickly until everything is incorporated.
Place mixture in a sausage stuffer and follow manufacturers instructions for operating. Use caution not to over stuff or the casing might burst.
Once all the meat is stuffed, determine your desired link length and pinch and twist a couple of times or tie it off. Repeat for each link.
When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Place links directly on the grill grate and cook for 2-3 hours or until the internal temperature registers 155℉.
Let sausage rest a few minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
