    Im going to make some goose sticks this weekend. We use Collagen casings. I will be putting them in the smoker. What can you do to make the casings tenderer?

    I have really good luck with natural casings, but collegen and other types of casings I peel after words. If smoked right they peel right off.

    With me, it depends on the casing.  Some tend to be dryer than others and want to separate from the meat, so I peel those.  Others stick just fine and have a decent "snap", so I leave them on. 

    How were the casings stored before use?

    I made the goose snack sticks this weekend and they turned out great. I may have had a bad batch of casings the last time. Here's some pics.
