Smoked Sausage with Sriracha Mustard Sauce

I just wrapped up a smoke session on my Weber Smokey Mountain, and since the fire was still burning hot, I decided to toss a few fresh sausages onto the smoker. While they were cooking I stirred up a very quick, but definitely spicy, mustard dipping sauce that is loaded with Sriracha goodness. Smoked sausage with Sriracha mustard sauce…. you know it was yummy.

Smoked Sausage with Sriracha Mustard Sauce

I used Italian sausage, bratwurst and andouille sausages when I made smoked sausage with Sriracha mustard sauce. My wife’s favorite were the Italian sausages. They had a nice spicy taste to them. My favorite? Andouille, of course. I could eat andouille all day. The spicier the better and andouille always packs that nice little kick that I really enjoy.

The Sriracha mustard sauce definitely isn’t just for dipping sausages. It’s great on sandwiches, subs, hot dogs, and hamburgers. It is creamy smooth, with a real kick to it thanks to the Sriracha and smoked jalapenos (chipotles), which also add a bit of smoky flavor. I think you could definitely use this same sauce for dipping chicken nuggets or chicken tenders. It’s different than those usual dipping sauces that are, frankly, boring!

Instructions

  • Fire up your smoker for cooking at 225-250 F.
  • Add your favorite wood (I used cherry).
  • Add the meats once the smoker is ready and cook until the internal temperatures reach 155 F. Start testing a single sausage after 1 hour (no need in poking them all and letting all of the juicy goodness drain out). Cooking time should be 1-2 hours total.
  • Remove from smoker and cover in foil until ready to use.
  • Serve with Sriracha mustard sauce, for dipping.

French Fry Dipping Sauce

Anita’s a ketchup-on-her-fries kind of gal. And I usually am too, except I am always looking for something a little different. This super simple French fry dipping sauce uses ingredients I always have on hand. Although it tastes a bit like ketchup, it brings a nice little creamy spicy flavor. Perfect for dipping.

French Fry Dipping Sauce

If you don’t have (or like! *gasp*) Sriracha on hand, your favorite hot sauce will work just fine instead. You can also use this French fry dipping sauce on much more than ‘just’ fries. It’s great for dipping homemade onion rings (try my onion strips too!). And homemade chicken nuggets.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.

This recipe is based on a recipe from Ree Drummond.

Ranch Dipping Sauce for Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

This is my go-to Ranch dipping sauce for wings. By using homemade Ranch mix I save a bundle on making this sauce versus using store-bought packets, so I usually make a big batch of it. There’s nothing worse than having a lot of hot wings and not having enough Ranch dipping sauce to cool them off.

Of course, this great sauce isn’t just for wings. You can put it on your salads, too. Or use it as a dip for vegetables. Any place you normally use Ranch dressing out of a bottle, substitute this homemade version.

Ranch Dipping Sauce for Wings

This sauce gets “happier” if you let it set in the fridge overnight.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
