Dice the smoked sausage and place in a stock pot. Saut until edges are crispy. Remove sausage, leaving drippings in pot. Add butter, heat until melted. Put corn in the pot and saut until it becomes a golden color. Place broth and 2 cups of the cooked corn into a food processor or blender and whirl until smooth. Add this mixture back to the pot.
