Default no smoke ring

I smoked a fattie last night. it was on there for about 3.5 hours and temped out at 170. brought it inside, cut it in half, and there was no smoke ring. I did the minion method with the coals, about 7 pounds, had 3 large chunks of apple wood mixed in, saw smoke coming from the UDS. But there was no smoke ring, plus it tasted nasty. i threw it away it was so bad, and im a fat kid i eat most anything. it was off brand sausage, so that explains the taste, but the smoke ring? any thoughts or .02 is appreciated.

Looks like you wrapped it in bacon. I'm guessing the bacon kept the smoke from the sausage and kept the ring from forming. Well, only thing to do know is make another one!

Maybe it wasn't really meat?

go low n slow. using water and place meat on the grill at room temp in leiu out of the frige works better.
