    Italian Sausages With Peppers And Onions

    I have made this recipe a number of times in a camp Dutch oven. It is very good, especially if you are working outside and have a burn pile going; you can use coals from fire to cook with.

    I have had good luck with my electric smoker using that method. Have some going right now.
