I gotta use these up before they get dry. Making 2.5 lbs of Summer Sausage footballs. My cannon at the ready. These are natural hog stomach sewn together to make little footballs. Each one will hold around 1 1/4lb unless you stuff them tight like i did the one. You might be saying how much them foosballs.....Like $8.50 ea Even with lacings. The casings are salted so i keep em vac sealed. The paper towel is in there to catch any salt or moisture from getting into the seal area. Going in the fridge tonight and getting heavy hickory smoke tomorrow. Might go into the smokehouse with them. Prob looking at around 12 to 18 hrs.
