    I made some summer sausage and snack sticks. The problem is I made to much. I don't have room in my smoker for all of my snack sticks. How long will these stay good just in the fridge? I need them to wait their turn for cooking. Thanks in advance.

    You have a few days at least. Probably good for a week. Had an issue a bit ago where I made and stuffed my summer sausage but didn't get to smoke right away and all was good.

    Ditto what Brooksy said,I've made summer sausage and let it sit for a couple days before smoking with no problems
  4. When making Snack Sticks and Summer Sausage I usually refridgerate overnight before smoking. I cannot imagine one more day in the fridge would make a big difference.

    Yep, what everyone else said. Also, sitting in the frig for a day or 2 extra could add to the flavor a bit with wet migration of seasonings and spices. Just my opinion.
  6. You will be fine for a couple of days. Did you add cure? If so that will extend the time.

    Happy smoken.
