  3. Rinse casings of salt under cool running water.
  4. Flush 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 refrigerator prior to use.
  6. For larger casings (>42mm): place bowl of beef bung, middles and/or rounds in refrigerator to soak overnight prior to use.
  7. Optional for smell control – add ½ tsp baking soda per cup of water.
  8. Optional for tenderizing – squeeze a lemon or a 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.

    The 32-35mm casings are the perfect diameter for general sausage making. Great size for so many end use dishes, grilled, casseroles or baked into your favorite pasta. Don’t be concerned about the new “box” packaging, it’s still the same high quality casing. The box takes up less room in storage, and recycles with the rest of your paper.

    great product, nice crisp snap when cooked, Takes a bit of time to load on stuffer, I can see why they sell pre-loaded. I would purchase again.

  23. Reinhardt Kuechl (verified owner)

    This is my second time ordering casings and always had good results, very few breaks when stuffing. They lasted several years in refrigerator until I used up completely. Adding salt and water was all that was needed.

  24. M491 (verified owner)

    The hog casings are terrific as always. They are easy to work with and rarely do they tear or break when making sausage. The last batch we did was 50 lbs and not a single break. And that tends to be teh normal result.

    I’ve found that if I rinse the casings then put them into a six gallon pail cool water for a couple hours then rinse them again as I need them removing more of the salt , they’ll be more tender after cooking and smoking! But the quality of the casings are 9 out of ten for quality!

    These casing usually have very few breakages and are nice and long.

  45. Mariano Berrios (verified owner)

  46. Anthony Gregorace (verified owner)

    We have only used 1 time. The only thought is that it was inconsistent with the diameter. Other than that, very pleased so far.

  47. Matt Nowicki (verified owner)

    My parents would make sausage back in the 70’s and 80’s, and when they did they used the casings from your company. Luckily, when I asked my mother who she used, she still had an old seasoning can from you, so I searched for your company online and found it. Now, I can make the same Italian sausage they did, recipe and casings.

    The casings are great! They did not break at all when I was stuffing them, and I didn’t feel like I had to be too gentle with them. They came very quickly to my house. Now that I have found your company, you’ll be my only source of sausage casings, or anything else I see I need.

  51. Robert Makuch (verified owner)

    As always, the casings are of premium quality. My only objection is with the packaging. They used to come in a plastic pail and now come in a box, which is of no use to store in the fridge. And the plastic bag the casings are in would be better as a zip-loc bag for easy resealing.

  52. Dennis Fields (verified owner)

    Just what I needed, excellent casings, all uniformed sizing and nice and long, only two blow outs and that was user mistakes

    I’ve never made my own sausage before but these casings made it so much easier. They were very easy to pull apart. After soaking them and washing them off we had no problems with tears or rips. So much better than the artificial casings. Our sausage also tasted amazing! Definitely going to keep using this brand and supplier!

  58. Howard L Garris Sr (verified owner)

    These casings are the best i’ve had in a long time. I had no problems stuffing them and their were no holes in them.

    I’ve been using the hog casings from The Sausage Maker for a while now. There was a glitch with the shipper on the last order. Customer service handled the issue and got the product to me quickly.

  65. Nicholas Magda (verified owner)

    I have never been disappointed with the quality of this product. The size is completely consistent from casing to casing and the amount of very long casing allows stuffing to go more quickly. Again in this lot of casings, I found no holes or casings that leaked during stuffing.

  66. Peter J. Camarda (verified owner)

    Fantastic product. We made 34 pounds of sausage tonight. Kept up an Easter tradition from Uncles who have passed away. Used Pino Grigio instead of water. Fantastic result. We are giving away most of it to friends and families.

    I’ve used these type casings for years and they work very well for brats, Italian sausage, small ring bologna and linked summer sausage.
    Somehow UPS lost the first package that was sent to me. I called the Sausagemaker and talked to John, who was very helpful and arranged to send a replacement which arrived quickly. Thanks for the excellent customer support!

    My casings were shipped fast and we are very happy with the quality.

    I have ordered these many times over the past 10 years or so and am always pleased with the quality. I was even more pleased that they came in a sturdy cardboard box rather than a plastic bucket. We need to cut down on our use of plastic!

    Q What is best procedure for soaking, rinsing, and preparing casings for ready to stuff? answer now

    Hi Thim,

    After taking the casings out of the fridge make sure you rinse the casings thoroughly inside and out. Once they've been rinsed well, put them in a bowl of water and let them soak as long as possible. The best amount of time would be overnight, if you soak the casings overnight then you should switch the water out halfway through. This will help to draw more salt, because the water that the casings have soaked in have already pulled out a lot of salt. After soaking for as long as possible or overnight, they are ready to stuff. Just take them out of the bowl of water and put it on the stuffing tube then stuff away. If you have any other questions you can reach us at

    Take care,

    Q How long do they last unopened? How long do they last after opening? Can you use a partial amount...... Read more answer now

    As long as the hog casings are refrigerated, they should last almost indefinitely in the unopened package. After opening simply add more salt, squeeze all air out of the package, label and date and refrigerate in an airtight container. The casings will last well over a year. 

    Collagen casings are a totally different casing, and should also be refrigerated. They will dry out over time.
