 I have just started making my own pepperoni, one problem that I am having is getting the casing to stick to the meat. Any suggestions out there on how to solve this problem.

Up to this point I have used only natural casings. I bought some protein lined fibrous casings which are supposed to stick to the meat but haven't tried them yet. Going to try a muslin cloth casing soon also.

Tell me a little bit on how you are making these. Smoked, poach bath, etc?

I have cooked the pepperoni in the oven, dehydrator and traeger. The Traeger worked the best, I put the sticks in an ice bath once I took them off the grill and the casings stayed on. I use just spices for my mi, but I have read that some people put powered milk in their recipes.
