garlic sausage in the oven question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Howdy fellas...I did up a batch of garlic sausage in the oven.
It was recipe I wanted to try out before I made a bigger batch.
It turned out great and has fantastic flavour...however...before placing in the oven, it says to roll them into logs and place a on a wire rack. Well,rolling them is a pain in the butt and pretty hard to get them uniform is size and shape( atleast for me anyway)
What would you recommend for a casing to use? I would like them to be about 10-12 inches long and about 3 inches in diameter..we can deviate on the size,but I am unsure what type of casing to buy..any thoughts would be great

Here is basically the identical recipe I use

The recipe I used says to cure for 4 days,kneading the meat every 24 hours and then to place in the oven for 8 hours at 175,then turning the rolls at 2 hour intervals

Try here for all your casing needs. Also for any seasonings you may need.

I use the fibrous casings like these from Butcher&Packer,

I use the clear so I can see the the color change as I smoke them, If I was doing them in the oven I'd get the mahogany ones. I fill it half way, tie it off and then finish stuffing the other half so you end up with 2 chubs about 12 inches long.

Rolling them into a log can be much easier than you think, and come out perfect almost every time. Check out this thread on rolling fatties, with close attention to the final wrap in saran....that's the trick to making a log that looks great every time and holds together well.

Hope this helps.
