Sausages are considered to be a staple food, wherever you are in the world. In fact, their popularity has reached the point that some people can’t live a day without eating one.

There are many different sausage varieties to enjoy. Perhaps you are already familiar with some of them. But if you want something that has a fierce yet delectable flavor, you should explore the world of smoked sausages.

There are two methods you can use to make smoked sausages. The first one is to smoke the sausage first, then cook it afterwards (preferably by grilling). The second approach is by cooking and smoking the food simultaneously. You can do any of these with the help of a smokehouse or a simple charcoal smoker or electric smoker.

It is these smoking techniques that give us the wonderful aroma and genuine flavor of smoked sausages. Among all of these sausages, Andouille features both a classy and earthy tang. Any food gourmets will appreciate the taste of this delicacy, which has a unique flavor. That’s why it is a struggle to find an Andouille sausage substitute.

How To Make Dried Beef: 4 Easy Steps To Follow!

By Rose | Meat , Smoking

How do you make dried beef? It is quite an amusing question, considering that drying is not a new food preparation method at all! In fact, drying (or dehydration for some) is a traditional method of preserving food that has been around since time immemorial.

Now, let me be clear about this. Dehydration is not actually a cooking method, as there is nothing that is being cooked here. Instead, it is merely a preservation method that makes meat products edible. It is like hitting two birds with one stone.

I know you’re quite excited about this tutorial. So let’s stop beating about the bush here and get started with our dried beef recipe right now!
