    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.

      Good quality casings. Casings were tied to a plastic ring to help separate the individual casings. Have used these before and never had a problem.

      These were a little cleaner than the 29-32 so a little better rating.

      I reordered the casing that I use every year, since the company “Sausage maker has the best casing and other items items I use, I would recommend the Sausage maker to all my friends.

    37. Joseph S (verified owner)

      I was about to order from a competitor because they were offering free shipping and 15% off. When I went to check out, the discounts went away. When I contacted the company, I was told the discounts ended just minutes before and basically told tuff luck bum. I went back to the sausagemaker and I noticed they were showing similar discounts I hadn’t noticed before, but that they had just expired. I placed an order and the sausagemaker honored the discounts. I will never shop for sausage making supplies anywhere else again. This is only my second order, but I will be making many more. Thanks sausagemaker. A very happy customer.

      When I received the 35 x 38 mm hog casing the package had a pin size leak in it. Put them in a baggy. Is that a salt water solution?

      never had any quality issues with Sausage Maker’s casing.

      Casings came in exactly as ordered. Packaged-sealed just as expected. The color was exact spot on. After trying a number of different places, I should have purchased here first!

      I’ve tried other brands and they always have short pieces. The casings at sausage maker are clean, good length and easy to thread on to the horn. They are my go to place for supplies. Quick shipping and great service.

      Clean and easy to work with . On the grill, they make a great sausage

    50. S. Torres (verified owner)

      By far the best and easiest natural casings to use for link sausage making. Perfect diameter! I do miss the ring that used to come in the packaging, it made for easier detangling during the prep and rinse phase.

    51. Anonymous (verified owner)

      These are the best casings I have ever used in 40 years of sausage making. Very strong and durable.

    52. Tom Mantini (verified owner)

      Happy with casings. However don’t like the cardboard box they come in. The plastic container was MUCH better.

      Not packed in salt – easier to prep, but need to salt to store left overs.

    64. Charles (verified owner)

      Exactly what I expected….will order again…

    65. Joseph Carrier (verified owner)

      Delivery driver had me unpackage the product due to container being soaked, upon inspection the plastic housing of the hog casings apparently had a hole somewhere in it allowing for the brine liquid to leak out, I removed the contents from the container and created a brine solution placing the casings in a separate container at this time.

    66. Kamonchanok Combs (verified owner)

      A lot of casings in one pack , good price and good quality.

    67. Regina Leonard (verified owner)

      These worked well! Would purchase again!

    68. Vincent Caffarini (verified owner)

      I use this casing for fresh sausage and brats
      They are always in good shape and not clumped together.

      My issue with this order is the length of time that it took to get here. I’ve used Sausage Maker for years and really like that there’s one place I can go to to get all this stuff. I don’t make enough sausage and charcuterie to bother with finding a vendor, SM is easier. The quality is always great, but this time the order took weeks to get here and there was no communication that there was a delay or that it was still coming. At one point I even got an email that my order should be here, but if it wasn’t to just wait a few days. Seriously?? I finally gave up and had one of my meat purveyors find casings for me. By the time my order from SM came in I had gotten the other casings, made the sausages, and sold out of them!

      I’m sure you’re having issues operating during the pandemic, just like we are in the restaurants. I’ll continue to support Sausage Maker and I’m glad that you’re still around. I never want to leave a bad review, I was just disappointed this time around.

    71. Leo Van Sambeek (verified owner)

      I love that the casings are so clean and white. The packaging is also good and makes it easy to prepare. My friend asked, “Where did you get these wonderful casings?” I usually used the 31-35 mm so will be interesting if anyone notices the larger 35-38 mm this time.

      Natural casings can last almost indefinitely under refrigeration if packed in salt and sealed in an air tight container. Do not forget to label and date the container also. We don't recommend freezing them, as the cell structure becomes compromised and brittle once thawed.
