Fresh and Smoked Andouille Sausage

Postby jmcrig » Sun Aug 17, 2014 11:47 pm

Did a small batch of both smoked and fresh Andouille links. These were done with a traditional double grind. Half of the meat was ground through a 1/2" plate, with the other half through a 3/8" plate. The smoked is still in the smoker, but the fresh is outstanding. A mellow heat all the way through it, and loaded with those great Cajun flavors.

Mark, nice. Texture looks really good. Be interesting, which has the best overall taste smoked or fresh. CF :D

I like it, great color. Is the color just from smoke or is there some paprika in the sausage? Great photo to. CF :D

Bill, there is paprika in the sausage. But part of the color is from the smoke.
