Although I've been reading alot of information from this forum, this is my first post.
I've made some very good Honey BBQ snack sticks using OwensBBQ seasoning.
I've been using the LEM Edible Mahogany Collagen Casing 19mm Smoked. (UPC Code: 34494 00247 if that matters)
I'm pretty sure this is an issue with the process I'm using, but after everything is finished, when I take a bite of the snack stick, it seems I can't bite through the casing with ease. When I say ease, I'm comparing them to some snack stick I had made from venison up in Michigan. Most people will bite down on the stick and pull it away to get the meat out of the stick and then discard the casing.
Any help would be appreciated!
