    Default Jimmy Deans Maple Sausage

    I love this stuff. I used Jimmy Deans maple sausage and smoked it for 3 hours at 225.

    nitzo, lookin good!

    I'd disliked Jimmy Dean sausage for years until I tried it in the smoker. Always too greasy, not much flavor in the frying pan. . I've run a lot of these and they're sure tasty. Try rolling the sausage out to 1/2 inch think between two sheets of saran wrap, peel off the top layer of wrap, then put a can of hash on top, roll that out under the wrap, peel that layer of wrap off, add 3 scrambled eggs, then roll the whole thing "jelly roll style" and smoke. HOLY COW.

    Got to give those a try again. It was the first thing I tried smoking right after receiving and seasoning my ST. Talk about too much smoke. I think I had put 3 large chunks of hickory in the wood box. I've come a long way since then thanks to all the valuable info on this form. BillyBob - I must give your recipe a try. Nitzo - Happy smokin and keep the pictures coming.

    Is their a trick to these?

    I tried this and they came out dry. I love Jimmy Dean maple, and I love the idea of smoking them. Just hate dry meat.

    Any advice?

    What temp and time did you use? I run 225 for about 3 hours to a 165-167 internal, I have pulled them and wrapped in foil for a half hour and that helps moisten em up a little more...

    I smoked at 225, but my thinking is I may have gone longer than 3 hours. I will try again, watch my internal temp, and wrap in foil to allow the meat to rest. I should have done those things to begin with, as I would have with any other meat I smoke.

    I'll chalk this up to a weak moment on my part

    Thank you, bigwalley

    I know this is an old thread, but I finally found some JD Maple sausage at my local store. Smoked it this morning with a chunk of apple wood. 225 for about 3 hrs (169 internal). Wrapped in foil for about 30 minutes afterwards. Damn! Gotta do this again!!
