Those sausages look great Rich. I haven’t had a chance to make sausages and use my Bella yet, but I’m stocked up, got my “Meat” brand grinder and will get going in the next few weeks.  👍

While an older thread, I can say that the Bella does produce more smoke, and probably because of the added air flow via the pump.  I have A-Maze-N pellet smokers, other similar tubes, and a square a-maze-n pellet tray.  I smoke cheese all the time when the temperatures drop outside, and folks ask for it frequently.  Typically, I smoke for 3 hours and pull the cheese because it becomes over smoked after that.  With the amount of smoke coming off the Bella, I might drop that to 2 hours.  I'm going to run a test after the holiday this year and see how it performs, but definitely provides more smoke from what I saw last weekend, (again probably due to the air flow).

I'm sure you know that you can adjust the Bella output. But tinker around till you get the results you desire. And enjoy!
