Preparing Natural Casings 

  1. Remove the approximate amount you will need.
  2. Place casings in a clean food-safe bowl.
  3. Rinse casings of salt under cool running water.
  4. Flush the insides of casings to assist in smooth casing application.
  5. For small casings (<42mm): place bowl in cool water to soak for about 2 hours in the refrigerator before use.
  6. For larger casings (>42mm): place the bowl of the beef bung, middles, and/or rounds in the refrigerator to soak overnight before use.
  7. Optional for smell control – add ½ tsp baking soda per cup of water.
  8. Optional for tenderizing – squeeze a lemon or add a tablespoon of white vinegar to soaking water to refresh casings.

The natural casings should be kept refrigerated until ready for use. Un-refrigerated, these salted casings may give off a strong odor. This is Normal.  Simply put the casings back into the refrigerator and the odor will subside. Natural casings should never be frozen. It affects their integrity after thawing and will cause more blowouts.

    we have bought casings from three different places around LA in the past 10 years, but the quality was inconsistent and they were quite pricey, not to mention the fact that with traffic every trip to get them were about 2 hours long. I was a bit skeptical about ordering online, but cannot be more content with the quality and price offered here. Just finished our sausages made at Christmas and ready to order some more today.

    As expected. fairly consistent product

  14. Andrew adams (verified owner)

    I’ve been a hobby customer for around 20 years. The casings, as well as all other products, have been far superior than any other company’s.

  15. Sebastian Cardona (verified owner)

    However, this casing is perfect to stuff my sausages, they do not have a larger amount per container.

    I have had other brands of hog casings, but I always come back to The Sausage Maker brand. They seem to be the longest most uniform with the fewest holes or weak spots. Very consistently.

    Will send a video of this product when I make my next batch of Kielbasa.

  28. Justin (verified owner)

    Natural casings gave a nice snappy bite to the sausages we made. held a great smoky flavor too.

  29. Robin Dawe (verified owner)

    I have not opened and used yet.

  30. Ivonne Moll (verified owner)

    I am not happy at all with my last purchased item.
    First at all, it took so long before you shiped it.
    Second, when i got the package, one of the bags with the casings was leaking, so the whole box was wet and started to smell bad.
    I didn’t used the Casings now, so i don’t know yet if they are still good or not

    The casings from the Sausage Maker have way fewer blowouts than the ones from the local ‘carry some of everything store’ and tend to be way longer.

  33. Theodore Weber (verified owner)

    Great product!

  34. Trey Stickland (verified owner)

    Made hog and venison sausage with the product and it stuffed well with no tearing of the casing.

  35. Leo (verified owner)

    The casings are great, very clean and easy to use.

    The two rings holding the casings worked great to keep them from tangling up.

    First time ordering this, so the size is not as big as expected. But, that’s the beginner’s mistake and is on me.

  39. Harald Werner Unterieser (verified owner)

    Very. good quality; even diameter to make sausage.
    Perfect for smoked and air dried sausage.

  40. James Meischen (verified owner)

    Everything was great. Speedy delivery and neatly packed. Excellent set of casings.

  41. Erik Adams (verified owner)

    Package arrived in a sturdy box. I discovered that the bag itself could be re-sealed with my home vacuum sealer, which is a nice plus as it means I don’t have to make a ton of sausage all at once. Product itself worked perfectly. Now I can focus on perfecting my sausage recipe.

    This casing is very good quality, and was perfect for making longanisa (Filipino sausage). Shipping and price a bit high but you get what you pay for.

  44. matthew barcellos (verified owner)

    Had some side blow outs and not so sure yet have not cooked any yet as for there performance on the grill? Have had better but waiting to see how they cook. i would buy again pending cooking. Price was a bit above product thus far will have to see.

    I like your products. everything i have received has been great . I don’t like the high shipping cost and I found the hog casings in the snow bank a day maybe 2 at the end of my cleared and sanded driveway

  52. Jeffrey A (verified owner)

    All of the casings I have ordered from The Sausage Maker have been great! Uniform in size, clean and easy to separate! A quick rinse and they are ready to use! I wouldn’t order from anywhere else!
