Preparation

In a medium bowl combine meat and seasonings. Mix well. Add ice water to meat and mix with hands working quickly until everything is incorporated.

Place mixture in a sausage stuffer and follow manufacturers instructions for operating. Use caution not to over stuff or the casing might burst.

Once all the meat is stuffed, determine your desired link length and pinch and twist a couple of times or tie it off. Repeat for each link.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 225 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.

Place links directly on the grill grate and cook for 2-3 hours or until the internal temperature registers 155 degrees F. Let rest a few minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
