I’ve had that happen. It’s due to oxidation before cooking. The meat on the outside will absorb oxygen from the air after stuffing but before cooking when you let them rest in casings that long. I know direction but, I’ve found that a 1 hour stay in the deep freeze is better than over night int he refrigerator, then right to cooking/smoking, then ice bath after. More uniform color that way. Te bicolored stuff is fine to eat, just doesn’t look as pretty on crackers.
I don’t use an accelerator, just a good mixing and cold.
