Our Smoked Collagen Casings 26mm are the ideal size for making hot dogs or slim caliber sausages. These casings are popular for smoked sausages because they can withstand the smoking process without bursting. The smoking imparts flavor to the casing and the sausage itself.

These casings are pleated into strands that can be unfurled and placed on  1/2″ stuffing tube.

Fresh collagen casings are thin and tender and virtually adhere to the meat after they are stuffed. Made from the hide of cattle, edible. Keep refrigerated.

    stuffed a 25# batch and had no broken casings. Excellent product and good service from Sausage Makers.

  2. Jana lee Dick (verified owner)

    have not used them yet, but the 19mm ones worked great

  3. Larry Hendler (verified owner)

    I have no problem with the product. I am a little disappointed in the shipping speed. So many online stores today take your order and ship the same day. This store seemed to need a week to ship. This is a big store, they should be able to do much better than that.
    Very disappointing performance

  4. Richard Marquis (verified owner)

    It took a little bit of time and practice to stuff this casing. Once I got the feel, I was able to turn out sausages a a pretty good speed. Couldn’t keep them twisted, so I tied them with butcher twine.

  5. C.K. (verified owner)

    The casing works wonderfully, just expect shipping to take 5-7 days.

    Order arrived quickly and as described. Easy to use although the smoke flavor is not as noticeable.

  18. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Casings were exactly as advertised. Made about 10 lbs of snack sticks with them, no blow outs while stuffing.

  19. Jim Shuler (verified owner)

    Been making brats now for little over a year.
    Tired of blowouts when stuffing with pig casings we switched to collagen casings. Well that led to issues with casing breaking while cooking.
    Finally found the answer …..clear smoked casings from The Sausage Maker.

    The casing was amazing and high quality for a decent price along with the service being spectacular as well. I will definitely become a regular customer, everything was professional and the best quality.


  25. Terry (verified owner)

    These casings worked great. They slid on my stuffing tube just barely, whereas the slightly smaller casings had to be stretched out beforehand. Nice to be able to skip that step. I keep over-filling, which makes link forming harder than it needs to be . Only had one blowout in 30 lbs, though. 28 lbs per package is pretty spot on. I probably got 29, but again over stuffed them. These casings won’t retain a twist. Best to learn a linking method that locks in the link length (just search on youtube). Worst thing about this type of casing is that they don’t stay formed to the tapered ends of the dogs. Kids peel them off entirely, but I’d rather bite through them. The dogs just aren’t as appealing when the casing peels away, on the ends, though. Nature of the beast, though. I can’t justify the significant extra cost for sheep casings, so will stick with these for the price and simplicity.

  28. eric (verified owner)

    Pretty strong collagen casings; best I’ve used so far. Still can burst or break if you are not careful.
    Has a great snap when done right!

    Q Are these already smoked? answer now

    No, these casings are not smoked but are intended for use in smokers because the walls of the casings are slightly thicker than the fresh collagen in order to support the hanging weight of sausages.
