I have been using cologen casings, both fresh and processed, to make sausage and snack sticks. Have made some in my 008, my gas smoker, and my dehydrator. The problem i am having is that once done the casing is tough and rubbery, and it does not adhere to the meat inside. if you bite into it it seperates, and can also be just pulled right off the meat.
I can't figure out what I am doing wrong, any ideas.
