Hello all. New to the forum. I've been smoking meat for a few years now but I have run into a small dilemma to which I do not have an answer. So,this evening I was mixing up a batch of meat for some salami and once I added the spices and cure, I had to leave due to an emergency. I put the mixture into the fridge, covered. Now my question.Now that I'm home, Do I need to finish the process (stuffing and smoking) or can the meat wait until tomorrow morning to complete? Any info would be great. Thanks. Also, love this site. It's been a great source of info over the last few years of smoking meats.
