    hello larry

    what do you mean by regular casing i have used lamb casing collegen and hog casing the hog casing is kind large for a snack stick the lamb casing is harder to work with then the collegen casing i like the collegen for being easy to use let me know if you want more info

    yo yall
    im sorry -
    i should have said like a 36mm casing [brat/italian]
    instead of slim jim width.

    how do they taste ??

    maybe thats the elgin sausage spice blend??

    hello larry

    if you use the 36mm hog casing you may want to put them into links that are about 6-8 inches long they will taste like a big fat old slim jim with a tough casing the flavor should be good later

    I have made slim jims in 36mm casings.

    It turned out ok (I did twist them in little hot dogs)

    It was kinda weird but did turn out ok

    21mm/22mm casings...what size of stuffing tube would a person need?
     
  13. cheech

    cheech Master of the Pit OTBS Member

    I believe what you would need is a 1/2" diameter stuffing tube

    I have 2 lbs of ground elk in the freezer that I would like to make snack stix with. I know this isn't alot of meat, any suggestions as to an addition to this?(pork/beef?) Eldon's has a snack stix pack for 10 lbs of meat with casings.
     
  20. You might want to add a lb. of pork shoulder/butt to the elk to keep it from being too lean. [​IMG]
