I got the idea from another site but tuned it to our specific tastes. Purchased 2 Jimmy Dean spicy sausage tubes from the grocery store. Be very careful when removing the sausage from the wrapper to maintain shape. I rubbed each liberally with John Henry’s Pecan Rub and fired up my Kamado Joe Josie to 250 and threw on some apple wood for smoke flavor.
Cooked @ 250 (indirect method) for just over an hour. It dipped below 250 for a few min while I did other chores which is why it took a bit longer than an hour. Cook until internal temp is 160, remove from heat and let rest for 5-10 min before slicing. Once the temp hit about 150, I added some Guy Fieri Kansas City Smoky and Sweet BBQ Sauce b/c I wanted something sweeter to offset the saltiness and spicy flavor of the fatty.
Here’s what it looked like before I took it off:
I sliced into small circles and placed on a freshly toasted loaf of italian bread. Added sauteed peppers and onions and a bit more BBQ sauce — OnPoint.
