I cut some one inch wooden dowels to fit in my smoker. They work like a charm. If you get them, make sure they are a hardwood dowel. You don't want anything that throws off a bad flavor and you certainly don't want anything that is treated. Best of luck.

I know of someone that uses pieces of cardboard to push the sausages apart at the base when hanging on a dowel. That would only work I would think for cold smoked, not sure how the cardboard would withstand the heat of a cooker though ... but the temps are usually very low so it would likely hold up.

Personally, I just try to make sure the two sausages are only touching slightly together at the base. Sometimes it means a little patch doesn't get colour but I can live with that. It almost makes a heart shape, just use the resistance of each sausage to support one another and try to align them straight. It bothered me the first few times but if done right there will only be a small nickle sized area where they are pressing together that will not get smoke. I can live with that. Besides, most commercial smokies (good ones that are actually smoked) have the same thing in my experience.

hardwood dowels.
In a pinch, a broom stick will work if you remove the paint from it
