Freezing meat.

  1. I'm planning to smoke some polish sausages with the cure on the weekend. I have 10;b of pork shoulder frozen. Can I use this frozen meat to smoke sausages that I'll freeze once done?

    No problem at all.  You can refreeze raw or cooked.

    This is from the USDA:

    "The U. S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) advises: Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze  it without cooking, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through thawing. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods."
