Tough smoked sausage

Hi Joe
I made a batch of smoked sausage and it came out sorta tough & dry.
I have to poach it in a skillet with a little water to make it palatable. Definitly not grilling stuff like Hillsire Farms. I had it in my smoker for a total of 9 hours to reach an internal temp of 152 deg. I used a meat block of 50/50 pork butts & ground beef, stuffed into hog casings. What can I do to get the sausage exterior closer to being moist like the fully cooked commercial stuff? Thanks
Mike
