I love smoked cured sausage but it is so high in fat. At least the stuff I make myself is a little lower in salt and fat.
Andouille is made in different ways in countries around the world. My recipe is based on a Cajun style adjusted for my mild Canadian taste buds. It is moderately spicy with a nice onion, garlic finish.
If you would like to see more details on how I made it, you can seem my post on the Smoking Meat Forums. The link is:
It looks complicated but all you really do is cube some pork, season it, grind it, stuff it and smoke it. If you don’t have a smoker, you can make it by putting it in a 180 F oven instead of the smoker. It will be good but that smoke flavour really adds to it.
