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. Anita’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 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.

Also try making my delicious beef summer sausage.

  • Serve with Sriracha mustard sauce, for dipping.

Buffalo Wing Burgers

These Buffalo wing burgers are further proof that chicken or turkey burgers do not have to be boring or bland. These are definitely our go-to no-beef burgers. A little spiciness, tender patties, and oh, my favorite, Buffalo wing flavor. Topped with a dressing that is both sweet and spicy. Perfect!

I’ve already made these Buffalo wing burgers several times. We absolutely love them. So far, I have only made them with ground turkey, since we prefer the texture of ground turkey over chicken. Well, that and ground turkey has been on sale lately!

Also try my campfire burgers or my crazy-great west coast burgers.

Sriracha BBQ Sauce

I spotted pork ribs on sale the other day. That can only mean one thing: St. Louis-style ribs. I smoked them 3-2-1 style, which results in great tender ribs that are packed with flavor by themselves. I like to sauce my ribs just before I pull them off of the smoker, giving the sauce a bit of time to set up. I wanted a spicy sauce, but not too spicy. This Sriracha BBQ sauce is the perfect combination of heat with just a bit of sweet. But definitely not too much sweetness.

Sriracha BBQ Sauce

I used ketchup in this Sriracha BBQ sauce, but you can substitute tomato sauce for a slightly different texture that is a bit thinner. Either way you can’t go wrong with it. It’s great no matter where you use BBQ sauce, from great 3-2-1 ribs to grilled chicken.
