For those that have had true East Texas style hot links...does this recipe compare favorably?

If not, would you mind including your fav. recipe...I know there are several on here, including one from Griffin. However, I have never had a true Texas hot link.

I don't have a recipe but are you talking about the Pittsburg hot link that's brown tough as hell and twice as hot?

I don't know...actually never heard of that one. However, I am highly new to this sausage making venture so my knowledge of sausages is just as limited. I just know that one of the staples of Texas BBQ is a sausage called a "hot link". The ones I have seen look to have a nice snap and are highly seasoned...also appear to have some beef in them. The look awesome, actually. Hence the reason to want to make them.

I saw this on Triple D and it made me want to try some hot links. Maybe you can take something from it; http://www.foodnetwork.com/videos/fresh-hot-links-in-las-vegas-0188244.html

And here's another worthy of a mention; http://www.foodnetwork.com/videos/scratch-made-hot-links-in-mi-0178358.html

OP Google Bigwheels genuine hot links. There are several references to it on the net. From what I've read from BBQ personalities I tend to trust they are pretty good and representative of what they claim to be. Every Bigwheel recipe I've been interested in and tried has been good.

When I think of hot links I think of what mike posted from DDD. Don't have a recipe but would love to try it.

The recipe that the OP linked is Bigwheel's recipe......I've seen that made and posted here before and it had good reviews. Give it a whirl and let us know.....Maybe I need to make some! Cool

Tough as hell and hot is right on the Pittsburg hotlink but they sure made the beer taste good I knew a guy that made them and had to use scissors to cut them

I just added it to my to-do list. If anyone makes these, I would be interested to hear about it.

I made 'em...was a little hotter than I was anticipating. It was more of a red heat vs. black heat...red pepper vs. black pepper. Don't get me wrong, they were good, dang good in fact. Just didn't have the flavor profile I was looking for. Next time around, I'm going to adjust the black pepper up and the red down proportionately.
