Salvageable?

Long story short I harvested 2 pigs on the 6th. Got them home and had them on ice and in fridge while making them into sausage. Well I only got the sow done last night but forgot to pull the boar out of the freezer, I had both in there chilling and seasoned but not ground yet. So the boar is in my freezer in a bag cubed up and seasoned and now frozen, would I be good to thaw it back out and turn into sausage and freeze again? I hope so. Not smoking this sausage though incase that matters. Thanks.

I see nothing wrong at all. Welcome to country life. If it’s been under refrigeration or frozen, just carry on and finish it.

You'll be fine, just make sure to cook to 165 internal before eating.

I do it all the time . I have pork chunks frozen in bags that weigh 2 1/2 pounds each .

I think that's what I'm gonna do is just split it up like that invac seal bags while it's frozen but not freezer burned yet. Thanks for the replies everybody.

I do 2 1/2 pound packs vac sealed , because I use Marianski's formulas and they are based around that weight . This way I can thaw and make whatever I need or want .
