I purchased the 19mm smoked mahogany casings to make venison pepperoni sticks. They come as pictured and have a slight oily lubricant on them that is reabsorbed after they are filled with meat. They're more difficult to overstuff and split than natural casings. Depending on how well I dry the pepperoni sticks , these casings can have a pleasant snap to them when eaten or can take on a softer, chewier texture. I find that they are snappy when first removed from the oven (that makes sense) but tend to rehydrate and soften up after a day or so. I've eaten them both ways, and I've also easily removed the casings if I'm not in the mood to chew on them.

Because I don't use nitrates or nitrites ("cure") in my meats--which give the meat a darker, pink color--I like these for the dark color they impart to the pepperoni sticks during drying. I really didn't detect any kind of smokey flavor passed to the meat.

The casings are still a little inflexible immediately after they are stuffed, so it's more difficult to link them or tie them off if your method calls for it. However, after letting the stuffed casings sit for 15 minutes or so, they start to absorb moisture from the meat and become much more pliable.

I tried the 17mm casings and felt they were too small to give me that store-bought pepperoni stick taste, especially with lean meat. 19mm is now my preferred size for snack sticks. The company's estimate on the amount of product it will hold is reasonable.

I ordered these for my first attempt at sausage making; once I got the hang of the stuffing process, it went very quickly. The casings were easy to handle, didn't split at all and the finished product was great! There was a nice snap when I bit into the sausage, and the casings didn't seem to add any taste. I'll definitely be buying more of these!

My first time purchasing casings to make pepperoni sticks, was a success! These casings were the PERFECT size to make the snack sized sticks you see in jars at the convenience stores. They were pliable and easy to use with a 3/8 inch filling tube.

My husband is a hunter. Everyone likes the Elk and Venison Landjaeger Sticks he makes. The 19mm LEM Smoked Mahogany Edible Collagen Casing is perfect. The 21mm is too large and the 17mm is small for stuffing the casings. I try to keep a supply on
hand to be prepared when he's in the mood to make the sticks.

The product itself is fine when fresh, but the ones I received (shipped by amazon.com) were old and dried up. The casings were lacking the lubricant that collagen casings should have, so they were papery and went onto the horn very difficult. They were too dry to stuff to full capacity, so after stuffing the casings softened and expanded, resulting in the sausage being extremely under-stuffed.

I went and got the same casings from from a local retailer and they were fine.

I'm not sure the extra money is worth it. I use the regular version of these skins and they're just as good. I didn't notice much of a smokey flavor.

These casings worked great and were easy to stuff. These were tuff and didn't break on us like some casings would have.
