This recipe serves:


Units of Measurement:
Lamb Sausage
2 Pound lamb shoulder
1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
1 Teaspoon cumin
1 Teaspoon paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne
2 Tablespoon ground fennel
1 Tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
1 Teaspoon Black pepper
2 Tablespoon Salt
1 qty (60-inch) hog casing
Yogurt Sauce
3 Cup Greek yogurt
Juice of 1 lemon
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 cucumber, peeled, shredded, and drained
1 Tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
To Taste Salt
To Taste Pepper


  • 1

    Cut the lamb shoulder into 2-inch pieces, and using a meat grinder, grind the meat. Keeping the ground lamb cold during the process is important so the fat does not melt, yielding a better sausage texture.

  • 2

    In a large bowl, gently combine the lamb with the garlic, cumin, paprika, cayenne, fennel, cilantro, parsley, pepper, and salt. Cover and refrigerate the ground lamb.

  • 3

    Using a sausage horn, attach the hog casing and feed the sausage back through the grinder to fill the casing and twist it into links. With a paring knife, prick holes all along the casing (this will allow steam to escape while cooking). Refrigerate the links.

  • 4

    Make the yogurt sauce. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, cucumber, dill, and stir to combine. Season with salt, and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • 5

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 225°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

    225 ˚F / 107 ˚C
