So i normally grind my venny, add seasonings, put in fridge overnite then the next day stuff into casings then smoke. Can i grind, add seasonings, stuff my casings and then put in fridge overnite and then smoke the next day. I am finding its 2 days of cleaning vs just one if you stuff the same day. Any thoughts, my worries would be in casings, the meat might not cure as well.

Im no expert but I don't see why you couldn't. I would bet sausage makers have tubs of sausage sitting in their coolers waiting to go in the smoker when they get busy.

Heck I don't see any issue, for us we aren't even planning to smoke them (brats and Italians) so don't see any harm in that. Are you then cold smoking to get the smoke on them?

Blue that is what I do. I take them out a few hours to warm up to almost room temp before throwing them into the smoker. Make the mess once and clean up once.

I wouldn't attempt it any other way... Not just for cleaning up once versus twice, that's a nice perk, too, but you will find that stuffing right away is MUCH easier than doing it on day two when the cure has had a chance to make your meat real tacky and hard to work with. As long as you mix it well the first time, your cure is in there doing its job. So, the short answer, after that long babbling answer, is "yes." smile

Another thing I'd offer is that if you are doing a double grind (in essence, grinding chunks of vension and/or pork, then grinding again for a better consistency or a for a finer texture), be sure to add your seasoning/cure in-between the two grinds. You can mix it all in after if you want, but mixing it between grinds one and two will more thoroughly blend your seasonings and your cure. Keeping everything as COLD AS POSSIBLE before grinding is also very helpful. If I am putzing around for even a few minutes doing something inbetween stuffing or grinding, I set my tub of meat outside to stay chilled.

    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
