That's what I had heard too Chuck, but the ones I got from Butcher and PAckers did not stink at all, Nor do the Hog casings, but the Sheep casings are another story, they are pretty potent, I have 6 or 7 Bungs and did not have a problem witht hem,TIm

Looks great nick, but 3 weeks seems preety long for curing? Is this what the recipe called for? I cured mine for 11 days, and had the same 3.5% salt, and I thought it was real salty, And I am not sure, but vacuuming them might make it even more salty, I only made this once, so let me know on the sal...

Redzed, i just reread your question above, I dried them 10 weeks, but you were asking about the cure, they cured in the frig for about 12 days, then rinsed them good and dried them before stuffing into a beef bung, I had only ordered 1 bung, and it held 4 out of the five pieces, so one of the Coppas...

And thanks Redzed, I had these in the chamber about 10 weeks, and the final dry was about 40 to 45%, As fo...
