Quick Easy Smoked Sausage Recipe

Quick Easy Smoked Sausage Recipe

I came up with this recipe a while ago, as a way to make dinner without having to fuss with it constantly. The sausage comes out smoke flavoured, juicy and delicious. I recommend doing extra, because they heat up nicely in a microwave for a quick meal. They also go really good fried up with eggs or pancakes for breakfast.

I have done up to twenty sausages at a time with no need to increase the time. I have to warn you though, once you make these, you will be hooked.


  • 3 or 4 lbs. Uncooked Sausage Links
    • Italian, bratwurst, or whatever your grocery has. Personally I prefer sweet Italian.


  1. Preheat smoker to 250 degrees. Put sausage in smoker using middle racks.
  2. Smoke with 4 pucks of your favorite wood, and continue to cook for a total time of two hours.
  3. Pull out of the smoker and allow to rest for several minutes. Then enjoy. Refrigerate or freeze extra sausages for later use.

Additional Information

The total smoking/cooking time should be sufficient, but if you intend to use an internal temperature reading, the following are recommended temperatures (those in bold are the USDA recommendation):

  • Beef and Pork: 152°F/160°F
  • Chicken and Turkey: 160°F/165°F
