Come on, be brave... Next batch, do up half the casings the shorter method and see what happens. Or even enough to just make a half dozen links. You could shave a full 12 hours off your prep time that way.

It's no extra time. Calendar, yes, labor, no. Next batch should be italian. Or hot dogs if I get ambitious, but I don't have the casings for those I don't think.

I just soak my casings in warm water, for maybe an hour or so, then I re-rinse and run warm water through them before stuffing. I don't treat the soak water with vinegar, although I do use a bit of vinegar blended into the stuffing sometimes, along with the water.


This past Sunday I did a batch that was half Italian, and half chorizo. The chorizo came out amazingly tasty. I might have to write down what I did for that one. The Italian sausages are very good, too, but nothing that completely blows me away. However, I have come up with a few ideas to improve the recipe for my next batch.

I'd love to see your chorizo recipe. Been considering that for a while. Maybe open a new thread in here.

Thank you all, I am going to use the pin prick method, next week when we have boudin for dinner. If that works then I will be making more. Just reading aout Chorizo, is making my mouth water. I like the course ground, so I never put it in casings. I use it instead of hamburger in everything but hamburgers. I love that stuff!!! Maybe I'll try putting it in casings and smoke it the next time I make pemmican. Mmmm, I am so hungry, now!
