Just opened a pack of sheep casing 30 minutes ago. Have been letting them soak and I tell you, they smell like CRAP. I mean the really smell like dead rotting flesh. Brand new, never opened, packed in salt. I have only used sheep casings once before and don't recall them ever smelling like this. I asked the wife to smell them, she thought I stuck a bowl of poo under her nose. Yeah, sure, I got a laugh out of that, but I was planning on using these tonight, like right now. 10# of Chorizo to stuff. Do they always smell that bad or should they smell like hog casings?
