    i though my spice mix had sodium nitrate in it but it doesn't , I want to smoke these on Tuesday, is there a way to make sure they are safe without instacure or sodium nitrate .?

    I know I should have gotten it anyway just to be sure but now its to late to order it and get it here ,  this is going to be my 1st attempt at making smoked d sausage

    Are they already stuffed?

    If so, hot cook them. Over 140 in 4 hours.
