I have had "lesser quality" casing in hog casings... What a PITA.... having no problems with the 21mm from B&P, there is no reason to look any farther as far as I am concerned.....
I have never made snak sticks, mainly because using lamb can be a pain. Then again I have not used lamb in a few decades. I should try the collagen, seems much less trouble.
"Sprouts", a local grocery store sells the pre-cleaned and threaded hog casings by the piece. I think is about $2.50 each and each piece should do #25 so I pick them up as needed and the quality is tops!
I am a huge advocate for us having our own outdoor kitchen, but I will wait until I am some place cooler.
I hope you and the young lady have a grand time.
