How long can stuffed sticks and summer sausage stay in the fridge before you get to smoking them?

If weather turned nasty could you leave them for 2 or 3 days? Just curious
Like the above said as long as temp in the fridge is good you’ll be fine. the only thing if you use ECA (encapsulated citric acid) you really need to smoke them as close to stuffing them as you can. Keeping your sausage in the fridge with ECA will cause the ECA encapsulation to break down and release the citric acid possibly cause meat texture issues as well as causing a grey looking and mealy sausage. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
