Can you oversiak Summer sausage casing?

Im making a batch of summer sausage and jumped The gun on soaking my fibrous casings. They have been soaking in water for approximately an hour and a half and I didn’t know if there would be any adverse side effects for my lack if time management skills.
@tom-0 you should be fine. I don’t think there will be any issue on an extended soak time for fibrous casings.
We’ll that was the first thing that came to mind the first batch i ever made. had a cold beer in hand and was sampling one and closed my eyes to savor the moment and the smoke aroma smelled just like i had a lit cigar in my mouth thus the term [meat cigars]
@Jonathon Was there another thread or topic that addressed glycerine and using a vacuum tumbler?
@doug7777 142 degrees is a stalling point where the fat starts to render. I used to get very impatient and start cranking up the heat to get the INT to go up. That usually results in burning all the fat out of the snack sticks. Be patient. The temp will eventually start to rise again. Once it does, it will continue to do so at a steady pace. I have had snack sticks in the smoker for 24 hours or better due to having 25lbs hanging at one time. I have also had 4-5 lbs at a time in the smoker only take 4-5 hours total.
