Has anyone used salami stuffed into animal casings then placed inside dry bags or is this a no no? I assume it will take longer to dry but thought it would make a more authentic final product.

Thoughts?

Just ordered my first charcuterie kit and cannot wait to use it.

Tony, Welcome to our forum! Please understand I am just the moderator here and not qualified IMHO to answer your question...but I am a believer in common sense and logical thinking. Therefore until somebody rolls in here my thought is if you are going to the effort of using a natural casing the "traditional way" then I sure wouldn't further place that inside a UMAi Dry bag. I think that is sort of like wearing both suspenders AND a belt on your pants! Both are not needed and in this case the natural casing might not cotton to the extra exterior. Again - this is just my thinking! Ron

The reason to put into natural casings would be to cold smoke the sausage before aging. I don't know of another way to do that without going into a casing first.

I've not tried this - I will - but that's what I would want to use the natural casing for.

Not recommended choose your horse—old or new, not both.

There's more discussion that you might want to red at Facebook UMAi® Salami, Charcuterie and Dry Aged Steak group.
