One good thing about making your own sausage is you have some latitude to do your own thing.
Snack sticks are usually smaller diameter, sheep casings casing are a good choice if you are wanting a natural casing.
Brats and landsjaeger would be about right in a hog casing.
Bologna can go in a fibrous casing, but is not a natural casing.
Hog casings and sheep casings will vary a bit in size. A lot of casing suppliers will gauge them so you know what the size you are buying. Casing size consistency is probably more important for commercial processors looking for uniform weight and size for their product packaging.
Just finished our first run of 2017 venison/pork bologna. Old school PA Dutch Amish recipe, smoked, rested, chamber vacuum sealed. Mild, Hot, Hot with high temp pepperjack cheese. Used Walton’s chamber bags and casings. Always quality, quick ship. Thanks Fellas!!
Parksider Looking good! You guys could feed an army with all of that!
I wish…everybody and their brother’s uncle stops by and wants to try some, then its can i take some home I have a buddy that would love this stuff…We did 40# of bologna, 40# breakfast, 25# habanero brats, and rest was pressed into 1/4# patties stuffed with pepperjack cheese and then pressed again to make stuffed 1/2 burgers, and a bunch hit the grill for “testing”… Here’s the bins just after stuffing and our latest acquisition, a 3-compartment sink for easy clean up.
