Also do you recommend putting them in ice water when they come off the smoker or just let them cool on the racks?
Times can vary depending on your smoker, amount of sticks in it (lbs) outside temps. Ice water or room temp blooming is just whatever you like. Ice water will decrease the shriveling of the casing. I kinda like the shrivel look.
120-130 is time to dry the casing so the smoke sticks to it better. Natural casings can dry faster than collagen and fiberous.
Hope this helps some
