Default A Sausage ?

The wife got me a sausage stuffer and some Cabela's seasoning kits for Christmas. I busted it out yesterday and everything went well, for the most part. After I linked the sausages I cut them apart and of course, the ends came undone. How do you properly seperate them after linking so that doesn't happen? Thanks for the help all!

how did you "link" them? I usually pinch them every 6-8" as they come off the stuffing horn/tube. then i twist every other one a couple of times. let them dry for while then you should be ok cutting them. i usually leave 3 or 4 linked together and cut later after they are on the grill.

I would guess that you are using "collagen" casings.
They have a "Memory" and will "unwind" when you twist them like natural casings.
Need to tie off the ends of each one with butcher's twine to keep them from unwinding.

A bit of a PITA, but not horrible.

Hope I guess right.

Last 2 batches of venison sausage we made we used collagen casing.
You have to tie the ends with string like The Kapn stated.

KC I miss your advice.
