How long can I store unsmoked sausage in the fridge before smoking. It is already mixed with seasoning and cure and stuffed in casings.

The USDA says for uncooked sausage (even with cure) only 1 - 2 days, but I've have held sausage for up to 5 days, before I had a chance to smoke them.

If you are making stuffed sausage, and you let it sit in the refrigerator, prior to stuffing; you may find it very difficult to stuff.
