Gotcha.

I might have hyphenated the "cold-smoked" part were that the case...

Putting the comma after "cold" (As you did) would have been the other way to clarify. To me, "smoked summer sausage" is the entirety of the noun, not just "summer sausage," so "cold" was the only modifying adjective, hence why I did not use the comma.

It would be similar to saying "big rainbow trout." Big is the adjective, "rainbow" is simply part of the noun: "rainbow trout." While that is the case, there are many types of trout, so it could be argued that "rainbow" is also an adjective, being that it modifies "trout." In that case, since you are using two adjectives, the proper structure would be "big, rainbow trout."

But since "rainbow trout" is a widely accepted compound, we accept that "big" is the adjective and this phrase would not require a comma, since it is not a "list" of adjectives.

Hence, "cold smoked summer sausage."
