Question about separating Brats

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

So I got a stuffer for christmas and had a chance to test it out. I was kind of expecting it to go very bad but it was actually a lot easier then I thought it would be. Was the coolest smoking type thing ive done so far I think. Even the wife was impressed.

 

Question I have is i twisted them into links. For separating them into there own links can i just cut them after they have sat overnight in the fridge or will they open up then?

Yeah 99% of the time they will keep there shape after a good rest in the frig

Natural casings should stay twisted, however collogen will not.

Someone else posted this link the other day.

true collagen will unravel but the meat might hold the shape depending on how it's cooked and the meat mix itself.

I usually tie them with butchers twine .

Same here on the string

If you twisted them at least 3 full turns you will have enough between the brats to cut & still leave a little twist on each one. After a night in the fridge they will stay twisted.
