Sheep casings for s snack sticks

Postby Peterb » Wed Dec 26, 2018 11:41 pm

Anyone using small diameter sheep casings for snack sticks? I have made some very delicious snack sticks, but don't care for the collogen casings after they have been vacuum packed and frozen. The casings tend to peal off in your mouth like paper. Really like the snap of natural casings.

I use sheep casings in this thread for snack sticks.

You might find it convient to use the synthetic ones for the last bit in the stuffer since there always seems to be just a tiny bit more meat than prepared casing and it's easy to cut a short length of the collagen ones.

I have used them as well, using the same thread as NC Paul is referring to.
I do need to make a new batch because they were actually very nice!

Thanks for the replies NCPaul and badjak. I appreciate it. I will try my seasoning mix and report back with my outcome using sheep casings.
