Cook Fresh Stoysich Sausage on the Grill
Arguably one of the best ways to prepare fresh sausage!
With this method there are two schools of thought on sausage grilling . . . here goes:
Grill the Fresh Sausage: Best to go low and slow here. Grill on med-low to medium heat. Turning often to brown evenly. Total Cooking Time: about 25-30 minutes. Internal Temp: 160°The longer and lower the cooking time, the more the sausage caramelizes and browns. High heat will burn the sugars - and you'll end up with black/burned broken casings.When grilling your sausage, use tongs (not a fork!) to turn the sausage. You do not want to poke the casing and let out all the yummy juices. Grill low and slow; fast and hot will cause the juices in the sausage to boil, this makes the casing burst open, causing a burnt outside and raw inside.
It is always best to keep the casing intact - this will yield a moist flavorful sausage because you are keeping all the juices/fat and flavors inside.
The other method? Boil First about 8 minutes and Finish on the Grill - Finishing on the Grill simply involves browning - again, low and slow is always best.
