Best Smoked Sausage Recipes
When it comes to smoked sausage, there’s just no beating Southside Market. Their sausages are mouth-wateringly delicious, and they make for some of the best dishes around!
Southside Market sent us some Fresh Original Beef Rope Sausage to try so of course we had to go looking for some fun recipes to use it with. We’ve rounded up some of the best sausage recipes from some of the best food bloggers around so there’s a recipe here everyone!
First off, Southside sausage was sent unsmoked – so of course we had to smoke it because we LOVE smoked sausage. Then we incorporated it into recipes all week. We had fun finding new ways to use it. Below is some new ideas and recipes for using smoked sausage!
How to Smoke Sausage at Home
Sausage smoking is a great way to add flavor and preserve your meat. The most important factor in smoking sausage is the temperature you want it low and slow. I like to start my sausage smoking at around 225 degrees Fahrenheit and smoke for about an hour. This gives the sausage a chance to cook evenly and allows the smoke to penetrate the meat.

Sheet pan sausage and veggies is an easy dinner recipe that turns roast veggies like broccoli and cauliflower and sausage (kielbasa) into a delicious and healthy meal. This is a great use-it-up meal!
