Out here, there is a company called Caggiano Sausage Company that makes all manner of fresh sausage in casings. All of them smoke up great, but, I really like smoked chorizo, smoked chicken apple and smoked garlic. I use a simple applewood smoke, usually over lump. Low temperature, around 225F.
I also like getting fresh bratwurst, Wisonsin bratwurst, and a couple of the other types of sausage from the Lockeford Sausage Company, which usually has a great selection of sausages.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
