Ingredients:


Italian Sausages (I used Pork and Chicken)

1 Onion

1 Teaspoon Basil

1 Teaspoon Oregano

2-3 Teaspoons of minced Garlic

2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

2-3 Tablespoons of Butter

Salt and Pepper to taste



Slice Onion and Peppers into small slices. Place in disposable pan. Sprinkle top with Oregano, Basil and Garlic. Pour a few Tablespoons of Olive Oil on top and Salt and Pepper to taste. Top with a few Tablespoons of Butter.



Heat smoker to 220-240 degrees Fahrenheit. Place Italian Sausages on rack with Pepper and Onions. I used a combination of Apple, Cherry and Hickory wood for smoking.



Smoke for 2-2 1/2 hours, until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Make sure to stir the Onion and Peppers a few times throughout the cooking process, as well as turning over the Sausages.



Serve in Buns topped with the Onion and Peppers for a Delicious Italian Sausage sandwich. We also sliced some and added them with the Pepper and Onions to some pasta with fresh parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
