Can I refrigerate my summer sausage mixture



  • I have a question about making summer sausage. I’m using venison and pork fat, if I mix my meat and I’m using encapsulated citric acid, can I refrigerate the mixture over night and smoke the next day?

    @scott-williams you can do that, but you are running the risk of having the encapsulation dissolve the coating which will release the acid into the meat too soon. This could cause a dry and crumbly product especially around the edges.

    When using citric acid it is better to smoke the same day as stuffing. Of course it might work perfectly well for you though so it’s really just weighing the risks with the needs!



  • Thank you for the great information.i will make it how you said .

    @Joe-Hell
    thanks for the info, I had not heard of this until 3 years ago and I think the reason it was brined was to cure or preserve it while
    frozen. A friend of a friend makes these after hunting season so they can be taken out of the freezer and sliced up for snacks and they are fantastic but he wont share the recipe. When they are unthawed even after many months they are still perfect.
    Have you tried freezing any portion and is it still as good when first made?
