In a large bowl, mix 1 ½ cups flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt.
Whisk buttermilk, egg and vegetable oil in a large measuring cup; pour into dry ingredients. Stir until just incorporated. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes while you cook the sausage links.
Cook sausages in a skillet over medium-high heat, turning often, until fully cooked through and all sides are browned. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and pat dry.
When sausages are cool enough to handle, place remaining 2 tablespoons flour in a shallow dish. Skewer each sausage lengthwise with a wooden stick, coat in flour, and tap to remove excess.
Heat a few inches of peanut oil to 375°F in a heavy-bottomed pot fitted with an oil thermometer.
Transfer batter to a tall glass. Dip skewered sausages in batter, coating the sausage fully but not the stick. Carefully place into the hot oil and fry 3 at a time until golden, about 2-3 minutes per side. Drain on a wire rack.
