Another casings question.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a package of 8oz hog casings, Home pack Brand good for traditional sausage such as Italian, polish, bratwurst and chorizo. It does not say what the length of the casings are or how many lbs of sausage can be stuffed.

Anyone know what the break down say per foot of casings, to the amount of meat I will need?

I haven't used that brand but it really depends on the diameter of the casing. If it is the brat size a rough guess is 1lb will need about 2'-2 1/2' of casing. Here is a link, if you click on the different items it gives you some detail:

The 8 oz bags of 32-35mm hog casings I get will stuff about 20-25 lbs of meat. Hope that helps.

Same here. I use the Dewied Home Pack package. It is also about 60 feet of casing if that matters to you.

So far, I like the Dewied brand casings best of any I have tried.

They also sell casings by the Hank, which they estimate will stuff somewhere around 120 lbs. of sausage. The number is just an approximation and will never be exact. But, it does give you a good idea before you start
