          This looks really good, I'll have to make it and compare it to my recipe soon, maybe this weekend. I have some venison/pork blend that should be good to use.

              I asked Tim Mikeska for his recipe, and he replied "I will tell you a few things but cannot give you the recipe. Someone did that once and he went missing soon after.

              Good old "Hot Guts", a Texas tradition. Funny this should be posted, I just ordered a case of jalapeno cheese which is due to be delivered today. Will be firing some up this weekend. I'm hooked on the damn things.

                klflowers Black's out of Lockhart, my favorite. All the Texas large bbq establishments will ship sausages just about anywhere. Meathead's article in the recipe section had several that are really good as well. Little pricey but saves me having to drive 100 miles to go get some

                If you have the Kitchen Aid grinder the stuffer attachment actually works fairly well for small batches.

              On the smoker now, I'll update this post when it is done. I used some ground venison and pork that I have in the freezer. I made a patty and fried it in a skillet and it is wonderful. The lower shelf is a link of my original version based on Vencil Mare's (of Taylor Cafe) recipe: black pepper and salt. I added red pepper to his recipe and it is a keeper ( https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...sausage-recipe ). I might change it based on Meathead 's hot guts recipe: I might use fine black pepper instead of coarse and add some fresh-cracked some whole pepper corns - seems to bring out the black pepper taste very nicely. Thanks to Meathead I now have two good Central Texas sausage recipes.

              Update: @Meathead's recipe is great, these taste like Central Texas hot guts but with a little more kick than most that I've tried. I've always been a little disappointed that most sausage I've had from Central Texas is mild.

                Yep, kinda strange. When I stuffed them they oozed a little red liquid before I put them on the smoker. They turned out great though.

            If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

            Placeholder

            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

            Placeholder

            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.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            Placeholder

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            Placeholder

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            Placeholder

            The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            Placeholder

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

            Placeholder

            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            Placeholder

            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.

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Placeholder

            Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

            Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
