PREPARATION / COOK
This recipe is pretty simple to make which means you can focus less on cooking and more on watching (and then eating). To get started, simply take your farmers sausage and cut it in half so that you have two lengths about 5 inches long. If you can only find half sized farmers sausage there’s not need to cut them in half. Next, take a sharp knife and spiralize the sausage at about a 45 degree angle making sure to go about ⅓ of the way into the sausage. Repeat this process with a second cut. This will help create a twisted effect and help it pull off the skewer easier with each bite. After the Sausage has been spiralized, insert your skewers through the center and then apply some yellow mustard to the outside of the sausage followed by your BBQ Rub.
For this recipe we used the Slow ‘N Sear Travel Kettle but you can also use the larger 22” Slow ‘N Sear Kettle Grill as well since you may be cooking up a bunch of these to share. To set up the grill we filled up the Slow ‘N Sear insert about 3/4 of the way full and then got the coals hot so that the temperature would stabilize around 275F. Once the grill is up to temperature, place the farmers sausage skewers into the grill along with a piece of hardwood for smoky flavor. When everythings on the grill, close up the lid and begin cooking at 275F until the sausage has been smoked and the rub has firmed up. For us this took about 30 minutes. (Remember our sausage is precooked so don’t worry about internal temperatures).
Once the skewers are smoked, brush on your favorite BBQ Sauce to add a great burst of flavor. Let the sauce set up for a few minutes before removing them from the grill and digging in!
