Alright, so I got a LEM 32mm collagen casing with the stuffer <I got it today> and did hot dog meat in them. <In retrospect, this might not have been a brilliant idea, but well. I always hated super little hot dogs that shrivel to nothing>. Now I ran the casing onto my nozzle, tied off one end..begin the cranking. Pop a wee hole into the end to let the air out with a tooth pick. Continue stuffing, that was fine, no major air pockets, nothing like that. I finish the run, tie off the other end. Begin twisting...well the part I popped a hole in, that just sort of exploded and I had to give up on it. <It ripped open like much wider>. Cut it off, put aside, then had to retie the end with my butcher string. Now I saw disco does this thing where he rolls them all out, and cuts the casing. I didn't succeed at all on this. Stuff would leak out the area I cut etc. So whats the trick here? I got about 7 feet of stuffed collagen 32mm casing in my fridge now, I sort of just twisted and looped it, so at least it's not going to unravel on me <Had that happen during the twisting too..forgot to do opposite directions to keep the twist. Dumb me> So if some one can tell me how I do this so I can cut the links after stuffing..or some thing. I'm worried about fitting this all in my smoker in one segment or some thing. That or some how I smoke these and then I'll cut and still splurt all over some how LOL!
