While somewhat more expensive due to up-front labor, Pre-flushed and Pre-tubed Casings (shirred onto a plastic tube and ready for the stuffer) are also available. As with all casings, these should at least be rinsed before use.

It is always a good idea to compare costs involved in preparing a casing for stuffing before you decide whether or not to use pre-flushed or pre-tubed casings. You might also want to explore pre-tubing on reusable stainless pipes in your own casing operation, thereby saving time at the stuffer, and allowing the stuffing process to run more efficiently...which typically results in higher productivity and better return-on-investment.
