I made my 1st cased snack sticks yesterday. I should b more clear I started this on Friday with the mixing of the meat. I stuffed them into LEM 21mm collagen casings. Had a problem with casings coming apart. Should I of soaked them even though the package said not to? Going to smoke them in an hour or so what pellets should I use? I have apple, cherry, orange, mullberry, pitmaster, winebarrel, hickory, and pecan.:help:

No need to soak the collagen caseings unless they are old and a little brittle. Then just a quick dip in warm water does the trick. I make a snack stick that has ghost,habinero,cayenne pepper in it. They r delicious.

They do look great though. What kind of casing did you use that you were having problems with?

They were LEM 21 mm collagen ones. They would rip real easy the place I bought them might of had them for awhile. I will dip them in water next time i use them.

Nice job on the sticks! I use the same brand of seasonings and I've experimented to see if we need to add more or less.
