Must have had cooling water cut into that sausage press to keep it from melting down!

My word that is a load of sausage. Sheep casing? Is that the usual for hot dogs ? For some reason I was assuming that Hot dogs were collagen. All you didn't do was Vienna sausages....LOL

That's too cool. Seems like a bunch of Venison in those sausages. You hit one on the highway?

Hot dogs like a ball park or Oscar Myer are skinless. The meat is filled into a removable casing and is cooked. Then the casing get stripped from the hotdog and "voi la" a skinless hot dog. Cased hot dogs are stuffed in sheeps and cooked/cooled and ready to eat....if you ever bit into a hotdog and it had that snap it was probably in a casing... Dietz and watson makes the best cased hotdog IMHO


Nice load of sausage there Grouse

We tried the hog casing last time. They were a bit big. So we are giving the sheep a go.

CT has liberal deer tags. 10 so far. Season ends 31st of jan.

Hey Grouse

That is one huge pile of saugage.  Looks and sounds great.  Personally, I would starve to death before I ate a hot dog, but that's just me saying.  Lol
