Pretubed Natural Hog Casings 38-42mm are the easiest and fastest way to stuff sausage with natural casings. Conveniently packed in salt, the plastic sleeves easily slide on the stuffing tubes. After soaking them with the plastic still on, simply slide one end over your stuffing tube and pull the plastic off the other end.

The casings are sourced from North American hogs only.

What Are Pretubed Casings
Pretubed casings come already strung on individual plastic sleeves. Since the casings are already individually separated, they are a lot easier to slide onto the stuffing tube. The casings are packed in purified salt and have an indefinite shelf life when stored in the refrigerator. Flush and soak in tap water before using.

Preparing Natural Casings – Do not remove plastic

  1. Remove the approximate amount you will need.

  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 prior to use.
  6. For larger casings (>42mm): place a bowl of the beef bung, middles, and/or rounds in the refrigerator to soak overnight prior to use.

  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.

        This product is great. No worries about tangles. I have used both the tubed and pretubed versions.
        For the hobby sausage maker like me, when you’re making small batches now and then, the pretubed casing is great.
        I usually make 10 to 20 lbs or so at a time.

        I just wanted to say thank you for your service and great product. It’s hard to get good service and great product. Thank you for all you do.

      3. Michael Schoonover (verified owner)

        This was my first time using pre-tubed casings so I was a bit nervous, but they were so easy and convenient to use! Would definitely recommend.

      4. Richard Nitsch (verified owner)

        If fast and easy is for you then this helps. Love to make smoked polish sausage with these. Saves some time and helps me get them to the smoker fast?

      5. Mike (verified owner)

        They may cost a bit more, but wow they are so much easier to work with!

      6. Gary Books (verified owner)

        I have trouble putting casings on the stuffer because I have two fingers missing on on hand. This makes it a lot easier.

      7. Anonymous (verified owner)

        Easy to use and great taste and texture

      8. Alpha Pitbull (verified owner)

        I always but the pretubed casings – so much easier than trying to work with a twisted slimy casing when trying to fit it onto the stuffer. 38-42 mm is perfect for kielbasa, and we have started using this size for Italian sausage as well – makes for a more substantial sausage, which we like.

        very good easy to work with saves time loved them

      10. Adam Neff (verified owner)

        Super easy to use. I’ll never go back to non-pretubed.

      11. Grant Van Buren (verified owner)

        The plastic containers for storing casings are great. Excellent price and quick service.

        I have bought several items from The Sausage Maker in the past and have been well pleased with the results from the products I have purchased. The 38-42mm (1 1/2″-1 3/4″) Pretubed Natural Hog Casings is no exception. It makes using natural hog casings easy to use. This is my third purchase and will continue to buy. Excellent results!

        This is one of the best sausage casings we have ever purchased. The casing was very easy to use and made stuffing sausage a breeze. I will certainly order this product again.

        Good size for polish sausage. Arrived quickly with good packaging. It was easy to slide onto tube and more consistent than others I used.

      24. Gustav Brugger (verified owner)

        The natural casings from the sausage maker are uniform in size, free from holes. I usually purchase my casing in the bulk pack rather than pre-tubed, but I am trying to make a new variety of sausage and the pre-tubed version offers a smaller quantity of casings at a smaller price.

      25. Timothy Graminski (verified owner)

        great pretubed casings worked great made smoked sausage.

        I am a novice sausage maker. These pretubed casings were of high quality and easy to use.

      28. william cox (verified owner)

        casings work good, but could use an instruction sheet as it took some figuring to get them on(assuming we did it right)

      29. Paul (verified owner)

        38 – 40 mm casing came on time. Package look good and casings are very nice kept in small plastic bag.
        I am making home made dry pork sasage with spices from East Europe – Lukanka.
        Next time I will buy casings again from your company.
        Thank you!

        My last two orders were exactly what we needed. Since I forgot to add a necessary item, I had to do a 2nd order and time was an issue. Luckily for me, someone from Sausage Maker called to give me the option for quicker shipping. Thank goodness!!!
        All processing was done timely.

        Ordered the 32mm natural casing already on plastic and ready for the horn after soaking. Perfectly clean and so much faster, it made it a pleasure to make 60lb of cased sausage. Will definitely get again

      40. Dan Zangari (verified owner)

        Might be a little pricey, but well worth it at the end of the day. Easiest casings I’ve ever used to make sausages.
