As the sun sets and the aroma of a sizzling grill fills the air, there's something undeniably magical about a backyard barbecue. This Labor Day, when it comes to grill-time favorites, consider trying our smoked sausage grillers. These savory delights offer a combination of smokiness, juiciness, and bold flavor that captivate the taste buds. In this blog post, we're diving into the world of smoked sausage grillers and sharing some mouthwatering serving ideas.

 Mastering the Grill: Grilling Smoked Sausage Grillers with Expertise

Creating the perfect smoked sausage grillers requires a blend of technique, quality ingredients, and a touch of creativity:

  1. Selecting the Sausage: Opt for high-quality smoked sausages with a balanced blend of meats and seasonings. Here at Stoltzfus Meats, we make our Smoked Sausage Grillers with Bacon, which adds extra smoky flavor. 

  2. Preparation: Prick the sausages with a fork to prevent them from bursting while grilling. This step is crucial to ensure even cooking and maintain the sausages' integrity. 

  3. Sauce it up: Adding a BBQ sauce to the smoked sausage grillers can help balance the smokiness with sweetness. 

  4. The Grilling Process: Preheat your grill to medium heat. Place the  sausages on the grates, ensuring they're evenly spaced. Close the lid and let the smoky magic begin. Rotate the sausages occasionally to achieve an even char and prevent overcooking.

  5. Doneness Test: Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the sausages. The USDA recommends a minimum temperature of 160°F (71°C) for pork sausages and 165°F (74°C) for poultry sausages.

  6. Serving Time: Once perfectly grilled, transfer the sausages to a serving platter. Let them rest for a few minutes before indulging, allowing the juices to redistribute and the flavors to intensify.

Elevate Your Grill Game: Creative Serving Ideas

Smoked sausage grillers are a versatile canvas for culinary creativity. Here are some serving suggestions to elevate your grilling experience:

  1. Classic Combo: Serve smoked sausage grillers in soft buns with caramelized onions and your choice of condiments. Mustard, sauerkraut, and pickles add a delightful contrast to the smoky richness.

  2. Grilled Veggie Medley: Create a vibrant side by grilling an assortment of vegetables alongside the sausages. Bell peppers, zucchini, and onions complement the savory flavors beautifully.

  3. Global Inspirations: Explore international flavors by pairing smoked sausages with various cuisines. From Italian pasta dishes to Spanish paella, the possibilities are endless. Also goes great with a low country boil!

  4. Sausage Skewers: Cut the sausages into bite-sized pieces and thread them onto skewers with colorful bell peppers and chunks of pineapple. Grill for a visually appealing and tasty appetizer.

Smoked sausage grillers bring together tradition, flavor, and the joy of outdoor cooking. This Labor Day, as you fire up the grill and watch the sausages transform into charred masterpieces, remember that every bite is a culmination of history and innovation. So gather your friends and family, let the grill work its magic, and savor the delicious results of your culinary prowess. Happy grilling!
