    AMZNPS being fired up.

    Not to many pellets because i dont want the smoke to over power the pepperoni.

    I've always used hog casings; what are the advantages of the collagen casings?  Just from looking, I definitely see they are straight as a string, not like hog casings which naturally loop.  Do they stuff as easily?  Any breakage?  How long will they last in storage?  Are they also salted?

    Nepas, would you mind posting the exact recipe, or would you PM me with it?

    The pepperoni recipe I have seems quite a bit different than yours.

    Normally i hang my sausage smokes but this time i wanted them without the top rod bend.

    Collagen are made from cattle protein non salted like natural casings are. Easy to stuff and will blow out if over stuffed. The casings will peel easy from the meat unless you have protein lined collagen casings. They will keep indefinite under vac packing. No soaking required. You can get collagen in clear, smoked or mahogany color and even vegitarian casings.

    Nepas,

    Can you send it to me too???

    Or maybe you could just post it, since so many want it?

    Just so I get it, because my Pepperoni recipe from Morton's is more like my Beef Sticks than Pepperoni.

    It's good, but it doesn't taste anything like Pepperoni, which is why it never made it to my Step by Steps.  [​IMG]

    Thanks,

    Bear
