  1. after smoking these summer sausage to a internal temp of 160 degrees,here they are... thanks to all of your help, to those who helped me THANKS...

      now that i have all these smoked summer sausage, can you leave these thing out of the fridge, being they are cooked and cured with a cure, or do they have to be kept in the fridge? kinda lost here.

    You can fridge these in their casings for a couple days, or put them in a brown paper bag, note they will start to dry some. Dont use a zip lock baggy as it can create moisture. Vac seal and freeze them for 6 months.

    Nice job.
  3. thanks nepas, i was going to use a zip lock bag. i will see how many bags i have for the sealer. do they still have to be in the freezer after vacuum packed?

    Danny for the longest storage in the freezer vac packing is the best. If you can't vac pack do not slice and freeze. Cut the chins into thirds or fourths. Wrap in several layers of Saran. Then in freezer paper. Using this method you'll get 6 months tops. We've been getting a good year out of the vac packed stuff. Using the ultra bags that Lisa sells at Vacuum Sealers Unlimited.

    Not sure how I missed this, but that's a good looking SS!  All of the above gave great information about storing the fruits of your labor.

    Point for your first SS!
