    I know alot of the old timers will say you have to dry the casings or the sausage will get sour.. I make alot of sausage and never dry any of it on purpose. I may have to let it sit in cooler until the smoker is empty but usually right off the stuffer then into the smoker. I don't see any difference between the two.. I would be really careful letting meat come to room temp in my opinion.i know if my meat inspector showed up and I had room temp sausage it would go in the dumpster..

    Every recipe I have read for Kielbasa calls for drying out the casing before smoking. I assume this allows the meat to come to room temperature before going into the smoker, I read somewhere that it helps with smoke penetration and elsewhere that this helps prevent tough casings. I have even read several recipes that specifically say this is a specific step for Kielbasa vs. other sausages. I haven't tried it without drying the casing out so I can't really intelligently say what difference it truly makes. Sometimes it is hard to separate the facts from the old wives tales.

    Just curious.. why are you drying them??

    Yeah, the drying process definitely requires the dogs to be locked up tight.

    Awesome, I will give that a try. Just prepped 10# each of his Kielbasa, Andouille, and Spicy Italian. All good stuff.

    Looks great! I printed that recipe out, will try it next time I make kielbasa. I like all of the garlic he uses in the recipe.

    Check out the version I made, found on youtube: Polish recipe that has been in their family for probably 100 years. I've made it twice. The first time was with pork, second time was venison and pork.

    Wild Hog Kielbasa - fill the freezer right

    I have been taking a lot of wild hog this year and processing it at home into a number of different cuts. I thought I would share one of my favorites so far - old school Kielbasa. Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or tailgate. If you are a hunter and have never checked out Hank Shaw's website you are missing out - his recipes are always a hit in my house.

    https://honest-food.net/polish-kielbasa-recipe/

    This recipe is easy to follow and I usually make it in 15# batches (that's what my grill can smoke in a single go). I tend to stuff these in lots of various lengths so it's easy to adjust quantities based on what I end up cooking. Enjoy!

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
