Once I have mixed all the ingredients, including cure, how long do you let it sit before stuffing? Is there an advantage to letting it sit for awhile?

If, for some reason, I had to let it sit, what is the max time one would let it sit in frig before stuffing and smoking?

Thanks
 
I usually just let it sit in the fridge long enough to clean up the grinder.

If you let it sit too long it will thicken up & be harder to stuff.

But after stuffing I let it sit overnight in the fridge so the flavors mellow together before smoking.

You can stuff and smoke right away but if you have no time, cover real good, fridge and your good for 4-5 days.
