Your definition was partially correct.

Actually if you have read any of Stanley Marianski's books on sausage, in the 18th Century (page 7 - Polish Sausages) the first written record of Kielbasa did refer only to a thick heavily smoked sausage. It wasn't until later when Keilbasa become a generic term for sausages.
