First attempt at making sausage

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I made sausage for the first time on Sunday, no pic's but turned out pretty tasty for my first attemt. I let the meat cure overnight and then smoked the sausage for approx. 12 hours. My question is does the sausage need to be store in the fridge? Can I freeze them?

You can freeze them in fact thats what should be done with any thats not going to be eaten fairly soon. Personally I vacuum seal bags with the amount I figure we will use per meal that way when we want some we just grab a bag out of the freezer

I'm with Jerry (Pineywoods) on this one to I eat what I want to and then put the rest into a food savers bagsin single meal size and then freeze it. That way you don't have to eat 20lbs of sausage ion a couple of days. But then before you make anything else now you need to practice the Qview part of smoking. It helps your pride and confadence with smoking too.

I too and a vac sealer in portions - if you don't have a vac sealer it is well worth the $ to get one -

Yes, definitely freeze what you don't eat right away, in meal-size portions. If you don't have a vacuum sealer, you can double wrap in saran wrap and then freezer paper. Both methods work equally well for me, and seem to take about the same amount of time.

That's how we do our sausage as well.

Amen on the Q-View! Figure it out brother! You're posting too much stuff for us not so see it PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif
