I just opened a new pack of Collagen 21mm casings and they are stick and smell like old veg oil???Why?
@midgetracer31 Can you post a picture or something? There is no reason that that should be happening, they aren’t made of veg oil so it isnt that they are breaking down in the package. How were they stored, how old are they, when did you get them, is there any holes in the bag? Let me know and I will see what I can find out.
Hey y’all checking in from Greensboro, NC. I have been making kielbasa and summer sausage for about 24 years and smoking of course. Just built a curing chamber and am always looking for new things to make! Canning ,pickling, curing, smoking, you name it!
Thanks for all the help. I am very pleased with the products. I had a source I used for years that went out of business. Glad I have found you guys wish I had found you a long time ago.
@Tim-Salois Yes, brining and pickling are used in the same way even though they do not mean the same thing even though they have slightly different actual definitions.
@lamurscrappy thanks for all the help. I will let you know how the next batch turns out.
@scottwaltner i personally think we found your problem. After the ice bath you need to hang them at room temp for at least an hour. That helps to bloom the product and help set the casing as well. I think thats your issue.
