    I really need to get set up to make sausage! Those look fantastic, I love the long sticks! There used to be a butcher here that sold 3' and 4' long sticks! Was always fun going with dad to get a stick that was taller than I was!

    I should probably edit that. It literally meant smoke done. Not cooking done.[​IMG]

    Really cant remember but each strand is coiled (pressed) at 50' lengths. Each caddy depending on size mm will stuff diff lbs of meat. I gone thru 4 caddys of these casings now. caddy cost is like $211.00

    Those sticks look great! How does the cherry taste on the sticks? I use hickory for most of my sticks, that's why I'm asking. Might have to try cherry sometime.

    I like the clean up crew too.
     
  19. interested in what seasoning you used ??

    Cherry tastes good. I used oak as well. 50/50. I have used hickory a lot, in fact i have tried many different woods and to be honest I cant really tell the dif after a few days.I like a lot of smoke.

    Edit: I don't use ECA. I don't like the tang.

    I follow that recipe almost exactly. I add granulated garlic and onion. And cheese of course. [​IMG]  Thanks to all for the nice words
