    Me and the fam tried our hand at natural casing today. I have never used naturals before, always collagens. I was very impressed with how tough they actually are. I thought they would be VERY delicate but we had no problems. Here are some pics. We made about 30lbs of summer sausage and 25 of polish kielbasas(spice pack from butcher packer). Now they are in the smoker and we shall see how they turn out. thanks for lookin

    I have about 25 lb in right now,,,, I strayed from my normal set the temp to 200 and pull at 150. I had read about everyone starting the temps low then bringing up,,, I am at 8 hr now and have some at 125 yet,,, Think I will revert back to the 200 from the start.

    Yours look real good.. Love a good sausage smoke.
