Almost hesitate asking, because it sounds dumb, but I just finished my first venison sausage smoke (15 lbs) using one of those popular sausage kits from Gander Mtn, and I used the cure from the kit along with their seasoning packet. It's currently blooming on the counter right now then will go into the fridge after a couple hours.
My question is, I would like to sample some tonight on the grill, but I have read numerous posts about putting smoked sausage in the fridge or freezer overnight before eating. Is that recommended to enhance the taste or is it OK (i.e. safe and flavorful) to grill tonight? Thanks in advance.
