Everything else was correct. Except here is what I didnt do. And I learned this today after recooking one. I didn't use casings, I should have completely wrapped in foil with drainage holes. My question was a concern with whether I would ruin an already cooked, but not all the way, summer sausage. So I am on the last edge of trying it out with a small one. Thanks. I'll report my findings. It's cooling in the freeze till it hits about 80 then I'll take out and refridferate and then try it later.
