Thread: sausage casings ... hog or sheep casings?

    sausage casings ... hog or sheep casings?

    been following flyfishermans thread on his sausages and all good info etc

    usually I burger as felt sausages was "more work" but really enjoyed last batch so want to get back into them

    didn't want to hijack his thread
    so wanting to ask the question regarding sausage casings....

    I used sheep casings and worked very well regarding a clutz like me and were durable enough with my rough handling but felt they were maybe slightly on the "chewy" side skin wise


    so hog casings or sheep casings?

    looking for something durable enough for the amateur handler like me but not something chewy or cheuch as they say up here

    :-)

    Its Size dependant sheep have narower intesines so used for the thinner sausage / Chipolatta , hog for the biggger and Cow for large / salami

    See now Paul, how is a lad supposed to resist making a comment about you casing your sausage in a sheeps intestine, yours being the thinner sausage as legend would have it... (the sheeps name with held for legal reasons)

    mincing has to be of high quality or you end up with a poor sausage
