This may be a dumb question but this is my first attempt at sausage. When making venison/pork breakfast sausage and snack sticks do you leave the calogen casings on after smoking/cooking it. The sausage I am making will be fresh so I won't be smoking it. I'm just wondering if the calogen casings will be noticeable when eating. And as for the snack sticks I will be smoking them. So once cooked do I just cut to the length I want and remove the casing? Thanks in advance.
