Sheep casing nautural

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I have been buying the small packs of sheep casing for weiners.  However sometimes they are too small.  Does anyone out there know where I can buy the 22 to 24mm casings with out spending $50  or $60 bucks.

Sorry that I don't have an answer for you.

 

Your likely to get more responses if you post your question on the sausage forum page.

 

Best luck in your search.

I just looked at Butcher Packer, Walton's, and Syracuse Casing. With shipping $50 is about the going rate. The Sausage Maker has them for $45 with free shipping. If you don't mind waiting 7-10 days

I've been getting mine at the sausage maker, and it's true the shipping is slow, but the quality is good.

IMHO Its better to spend the bucks on quality casings rather than wasting money on the home packs...... A hank should last you a long time.... Shelf life is 2 years....

I just got a new hank of sheep. I just used the first of them and was surprized by two things. This hank is more "tender" than the last few I have bought, (Butchers & Packers). They are also slightly larger more on the lines of frankfurters than breakfast sausages. I was thinking about it the other day, how tender and large and the light came on above my head.

 

I had rinsed and then left them in H20 in the reefer for almost a week. Seriously I think they were softened to the max. Go a head and laugh, BUT I had 2 whole trays of veal sausages I made,they fell and hit the floor.

 

 

That is all that was left. They blew up, the casings were just too soft. My fault totally, they set and softened too long. I had sausage mush all over the place. It caused me to loose my temper and say bad words too! LOL

 

Lesson learned.

 

Other than my own stupidity I have not had a problem with B&P. Although I think of the pre-loaded from Sausage Maker everytime I start trying to start the sheep casing on the stuffing tube. LOL

 

Remember you usually get what you pay for in life.

I just bought some from      Overseas Casing Co. they are in Seattle.

I bought them on Amazon although the Co. does have a web site that you can order from. Just got them today so it's gonna be a while before I can try them.

 

Update. Don't waste your money on these casings. They were full of hole and tears, I ended  up throwing away most all of the entire hank.

Ethnic sausages in international casings. Do we need to check the compatibility before using? Make sure they with work together?
