    Can I freeze ground pork for sausage? In other words, can I store it ground and add whatever seasonings later, as well as stuff it? How would you freeze it? I have a vac sealer. How long will it keep, if frozen correctly?

    Do you think ground meat loses a lot of moisture when frozen?

    Ohh geeeez, I have already been thinking about it.  This sht is getting out of hand.  I've also added a food scale to the mix.  How did I get so derailed?

    FYI, Harbor Freight has good deals and good scales. I have two of them. One 11lb capacity for meat, and my "drug dealer" scale that weighs to 1/10 gram for spices. I'd buy 'em again in a heartbeat.

    I buy pork butts when they're on sale by the case. I grind all of it and freeze it in 2 and 5 # bags, that way its all ready to go when I'm going to make sausage all I need to do is unthaw it. I do the same with my venison.
