Texas Smoked Hot Links

I love a good Texas style hot link sausage, in my area of Texas really good ones are hard to find. Now if I lived closer to the Texas Hill country things would be different. There are many German sausage makers located there. So whats up, I made my own. I have made lots of sausage but never hot links. I will admit I need to hone my sausage stuffing skills. I didn't take many photos Just forgot until I was almost finished.
These were pretty good but something was missing. So if anybody has a hot link recipe you are proud of and don't mind shearing it, please post it. Here are the photos I did take, and the recipe. I finished with 20 pounds of links mostly already gone. Thanks Bill
