If grinding your own sausage, use the fine blade of a meat grinder and pass the pork and bacon mixture through once.
Form the sausage into patties, or push through the small tube of a sausage stuffer to form links.
When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 450°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.
450 ˚F / 232 ˚C
Insert the probe into the center of the sausage. Place the links or patties directly on the grill grates. Close the lid, and cook for 10-15 minutes, flipping once, until the internal temperature reaches 175°F.
450 ˚F / 232 ˚C
175 ˚F / 79 ˚C
Remove the sausage from the grill and serve immediately. Enjoy!
