I recently purchased some hog and lamb casings because I was planning on attempting to make my first summer sausage and brats this weekend but I found out today that I have go out of town for work on Thursday and wonâ€™t be back for a week or so. Man is there anything worse that work coming between you and your smoker. :evil: My question is should I be doing anything special with the casings, for example should I be storing them in the fridge? I did read some where that it was bad to freeze them. They are in sealed packages, but this also leads into another question, is it possible to store casings after I open the package, I donâ€™t believe I will use all of them and would like to store the remainder for a few months or so. Or should I just go big and use up all the casings then freeze the extra sausage?
