Question on making sausages.

  • Good morning everyone from Kyoto Japan,


    I am going to make sausages in the near future for the first time in my life .


    I have a couple of questions on making sausages.


    Do you leave the sausages in the fridge without covering plastic film to develop pellicle on them before you cold smoke them?


    If so, how long do you leave them in the fridge? Do you leave them overnight?


    Thank you in advance. :)

  • Agreed overnight best but 3-4 hours would be OK if time poor

    Never enough BBQ

  • if you are hot smoking the sausages, as in kranski/chirizo style, they should be cooled in an ice water bath as they come out of the smoker, dried and then refrigerated over night before vac packing. This will keep them nice and smooth and avoid the wrinkley

  • Yukkie, what kind of sausage are you making?

    Thank you for your comment. I have never made any sausages in my life yet.


    So I’m gonna make some basic simple sausages . I have picked a recipe from a YouTube channel.

  • Do you have a way to stuff the sausage meat into the casing?
