Making a big batch of summer sausage tomorrow and planning on vac packing and freezing afterwards. So my question is peel the casing before freezing and packing or after thawing before eating? Maybe it doesn't matter... My instinct is to freeze it in the casings and peel when ready to eat

Hi there and welcome!

I freeze in those casings and peel after defrosting :)
 
I always take mine off . I use a lot of cloth bags , so that's one reason . I also don't water bath because I further dry mine in the fridge , and I like the results with the casings removed . Never had any issues myself .

First real run in this smokehouse, and id say its a success. Used the recipe from kutas' book. Added some sharp cheddar to some. Might have gone too fine on the grind but its tasty

That looks fantastic! I'd eat all of it. Congrats on the new smokehouse success :)
