Natural Hog Casings 32-35mm 10m


Casings are the hidden superhero of your sausage. Your sausage casing is what keeps all your carefully chosen ingredients, flavours and juices in and it also dictates the texture and eating experience of your final sausage.

Natural hog casings have an amazing ‘semipermeable’ wall which breathes, meaning your beautiful BBQ/cooking/smoking flavors can permeate the casing and infuse your sausage meat.

The end result is a sausage with better flavor and juiciness, great sizzle and the much prized sausage “pop” that you can only get from a sausage made with a natural casing.

- PRODUCT FORMAT: 10m total. 1 x 10m length of natural, edible hog casings.

- PRODUCT SIZE: A Grade Uniform 32/35mm. Your sausage will be 32-35mm/1.3” diameter once casing filled/stuffed (a bit smaller than a standard milk bottle top). For details on how casing sizing works follow this link.

- PRE-TUBED: Our casings are pre-threaded onto soft tubes for easy transfer to your sausage maker nozzle and no annoying knots or tangles (please do not remove from tube). 

- SAUSAGE CALCULATOR: As a guide, with this 15m product you can make a total of approximately 5kg of sausages or approx 70 x 80g sausages. Check out our sausage making / casings calculator here.

Types of sausages

History and tradition usually guides which sausage casings are used for each type of  sausage, and therefore the size of the sausage. However, there really is no technical reason that sausages have to be certain sizes, and therefore use certain casings. 

Our advice is, don’t get too caught up on the size of your sausage. Our natural hog casings make fat, chunky sausages and are traditionally used for Italian sausages, pork sausages, bratwurst, Kielbasa, Polish sausage, Boudin, Chorizo, chicken, venison, lamb or beef sausages.

Looking for a slim, tender & juicy sausage? Try our natural sheep casings.

Usage & storage instructions:


1) Rinse casings thoroughly on tubes under cold tap.
2) Soak casings on tubes in warm water for minimum of 45mins or in cold water overnight.
3) Transfer from tube to sausage stuffing horn. Please use a 20mm/0.8" nozzle on your sausage stuffer.

- STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS: Please store in refrigerator. Once opened generously resalt any left over casings. Wrap in clingfilm and store airtight in our resealable pouch provided or in a container up to the best before date.
