I did a batch of summer sausage out of venison 7 pounds of venison 2 1/2 pounds of beef fat keep everything really cold when you grind it turned out great
What’s the best casing for breakfast sausage?
Douglas Moore I’ve used the 21 mm fresh collagen casings when making breakfast sausage and that works out perfectly.
Douglas Moore I agree with @Boudreaux, 21mm fresh collagen casings are the easiest to use and I think they have a better snap then sheep casings. If you are looking to go with a Natural Casing then you would want to look at the smallest sheep casings which are generally the 22-24mm Sheep in either the entire hank or you can get that size in a HomePack as well. The home packs will stuff somewhere in the vicinity of 15 lb of breakfast sausage. You need to rinse and soak the Sheep Casings and if you go with the Home Pack you also need to rinse the inside.
