Default Sausage help please.

Hey everyone. I live in an area that has a very large Portuguese community, and we love our linguica and chourico. I also work at a local meat market and the head cutter is going to make his own chourico and he is going to give me some of it to smoke. My question is this. Since I'm not smoking these sausages to eat, how should I go about it? Should I cold smoke them or just do a regular smoke at a real low heat? I should also say that I am working with a 30 gallon uds, my only smoker, haha.

Typically, linguica and chourico are both fully cooked when you buy them from a store. How do I achieve that without just handing him something that resembles leftovers, haha.

Thanks in advance.

This may be much more than you want to know, but Len Poli has a great site devoted to sausage here:

http://lpoli.50webs.com/Sausage%20recipes.htm

Briefly, you need to be careful smoking to make sure the meat isn't in the danger zone too long. Does he use a cure in the sausages? That too is a factor in how you handle and cook them.
