So, i ground up and stuffed 20 lbs of brisket/pork sausage late yesterday afternoon. I have the proper amount of cure #1 in them. I let them sleep over night and most of today, as I ground up and stuffed 10 lbs of green onion pork sausage today.

Question is, is it okay to let them stay in the fridge one more night and smoke them in the morning, so i can let the green onion sausage sleep tonight as well? That way, i can smoke them all at once tomorrow morning?

Will one more night hurt?

Thanks fellas. I thought it was okay. But, i just needed to check with the experts.

I'll tell ya this though. 30 lbs for one guy in a home kitchen is no joke. And, i still wanted to make two more 10lb batches of different flavors. But, I am spent out. It would be a lot nicer if i had a commercial kitchen and commercial equipment and one other guy to help me. It would be a breeze.

I have the Exact same problem ! When I plan on 3 0r 4 batches the shots of Crown between batches cause me to get spent out too ! Maybe it's spun out ?? lol . Looking forward to see the finished product !

Sorry, Fellas. I think they came out okay. All has been given away and consumed.

Im searching high and low here in Birmingham, AL for a couple of pork bellies with no success so far. Plan of cold smoking and slicing me up some bacon with a couple different flavor profiles.

If you have a Costco within driving distance, they sell pork bellies.

Their website is messed up when you're trying to look for fresh meat. You can't find most of what they have in store.

Pork belly prices are outrageous these days! I was at Costco a week ago and I couldn't justify the $4.99 / lb

SH0RTS SH0RTS have you looked in to buck board bacon (BBB) made from pork shoulder or butt? I have a butt in the fridge for the sky high price of $1.49/

Not knowing your location, I don't have recommendations on shopping.
I'm in central Florida and when I get a taste for pork belly, I pick up a smaller portion at Publix. Price still high, but all I want is a meal or two of braised side pork
