I never like to thaw and re-freeze. But I am making sausage today with some extra hog meat thats been frozen. We are going to make fresh sausage, to be cooked before eating so i dont have to deal with the curing. Do yal refreeze after making sausage? This will be my first time making sausage so any tips are appreciated.

Me too. Don't do it more than a couple of times with the same batch though.

We always freeze ours, thaw out to make sausage, then freeze the sausage.

Tip on mixing and grinding:
Mix your seasoning with the meat before grinding. We use as ice chest for this.
Then alternate pork/venison (or whatever meat) as you feed it into your grinder. This will mix again as you go.

Adding the seasoning after grinding is a lot of mixing work, and not near as thorough.

Only way I can process all the deer and hogs I take each year. Not enough time to make the final product all at once. Have never noticed a difference.

I read where the USDA suggested to keep the meat at 40 degrees or lower if you are going to re-freeze. Some bacteria start to grow at 40.

I don't check the temp, but I try to keep the meat as cold as possible if I am going to re-freeze. Never had a problem.
