I'm making sausage and some salami today as well. Killed four deer this week so I've got a day working on it. I got the casings at Oak Grove Smokehouse on old Jefferson as well as there regular sausage seasonings and sage, I'll add sage to one batch and a lot of garlic to another batch. I've got pork butt and beef chuck so I'll make a variety. I like a bit of beef for the flavor.

That smoker looks awesome. Can you give some more details on how you built it and what materials you used. That smoker looks like a great project.

The outer wood is 3/4" plywood. We have it lined inside with insulation and over that is stainless steel flashing material. The racks are from an old frige and the fire pit is an old old cast iron bbq pit.

I was looking around Scribd after reading the other thread's link about Fried Chicken Gumbo and found this:

What do you use for ventilation? Do you have some vents for inflow down by the firebox with a smokestack exit on top or what?

Setup looks fantastic by the way.

What do you put in your meat mixture?

Salt Black, pepper, Red pepper, Garlic, LeBlanc's sausage seasoning.


I'm a big fan of Jacob's andouille, and I always thought there was another spice in it that I can't identify. Anyone know how they season their andouille?

No vents up top. The bottom rack that the pit sits on is open to allow air to the fire. We can crack the door open at the top if need be but we normally don't have to. It has enough leak by to vent itself.

Nope. The instructions say pine.

you mentioned insulation in your smoker... besides the ss wrap around the bottom sides, what type of insulation do you have? I can't see it in the pictures..
