For a charcoal grill, grill links on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 14 to 18 minutes or until done (160°F), turning once halfway through grilling. For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place links on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.
Shape each portion around a flat-sided metal skewer into a 6 inch long link.
