Hi guys!! I ground up some venison summer and pork for summer sausage with 70% venison 30% pork. I used the correct amount of cure #1 in the mix. I stuffed it right after mixing it up and placed it in the refridgerator. Was planning on smoking next day, but unexpected things came up, and haven't got it smoked yet... How many days will it be okay in the fridge before smoking.?? Any help would be great!!

As long as there is cure #1 in there it’s good for quite a while, I’m not exactly sure on this but I would think a week or so would be fine. chef jimmyj chef jimmyj would be able to give you a correct answer. If he doesn’t see this, then just PM him.

Thanks for the quick reply!! I stuffed them Sunday night, and I am hoping to smoke them after work tomorrow (so about 5 days). Sounds like I should hopefully be in the clear!! I'll see if anyone say any different, but thanks again!!!
