GODUCKS First, I hope your brother and your family is okay and doing well! Second, what you are packing into the 1 lb bags should be 100% fine, that won;t be a problem as you can use a large stuffing tube. Where you might run into an issue is with the stuffing into the links. Since the meat has been sitting after it has had the seasoning (especially the salt) mixed in it will start to set up and become a little more difficult to deal with. Mixing it again will help a little but be careful not to overdo it, your meat right now is probably going to start extracting proteins very quickly. Now, that isn’t the end of the world or anything, it might just give you a different texture than you are used to from a breakfast sausage. All in all I think you will be fine!
Summer sausage and not much meat available

So like everyone stores have meat flying off the shelves. I have a lot of friends and family asking me to make snack sticks, beef jerky and Summer Sausage. I have some pork shoulder but not enough. I was able to get a good amount of pork loin which in the back says 18 percent total fat. I also have some ground beef in fridge which is 75 percent fat. I do have pork fat that I always freeze. I’ve only ever used pork shoulder by it’s self for summer sausage and sticks. Any advice on how the pork loin will do and if I need to add fat or the ground beef?
Check with all your hunting buddies, friends and neighbors and have them check the bottom of their freezer for meat other than pork and get some fresh beef fat, Have made lots of good summer sasuage and snack sticks with 2-3 year old frozen meat.
