It usually only lasts a day or two in the fridge after that point. This may be wrong, and maybe I should smoke it before i freeze it, I'll let the more experienced chime in for that.
This is the answer I needed. I will make the recipe as is, hang the raw sausage for 4 hours then vacseal and freeze. Then defrost and smoke on my grill at low temp.
When I say "fresh" I guess I mean freshly stuffed before cooking. Once smoked I would serve immediately.
So I understand now that I can freeze the raw stuffed sausage, then use in parcels as I need and keep in the freezer for a month or two before cooking.
Sound right? Thanks for the advice.
