    Why Use the Best Fitting Stuffing Tube?

    If you choose and use the best fitting and largest stuffing tube that can fit the appropriate casing, it will make sausage stuffing much easier. For example, a 19mm Collagen Casing can be stuffed by using both a 10mm stuffing tube or a 12mm stuffing tube, but, if you use the larger 12mm stuffing tube, the slight difference in the opening of the stuffing tube will make it easier to force sausage out of the sausage stuffer into that small stuffing tube and thus your casing.

    What Size of Stuffing Tube For Collagen Sausage Casings?

    What Size of Stuffing Horn For Natural Sausage Casings?

    Natural casings are more flexible and stretchy prior to stuffing than collagen, so you have a bit more leeway on choosing the correct stuffing tube or tapered stuffing horn. This is Walton’s recommendation for sizes:
    Natural Sheep Casings – 1/2" Stuffing Horn (12mm)
    Natural Hog Casings – 3/4" Stuffing Horn (19mm)
