I've looked up DWC and De Wied and can find nothing....   I'm betting they are a Chinese or some other off shore casing....  Stick with Syracuse, Butcher and Packer and other big suppliers to the commercial market...   stay away from the "Home Pack" casings...  they are shorts, damaged ends of casings that don't make the grade...

I use Sausage maker , but I'm out . Saw these in the store and picked them up . Yes Dave  says packed in China with a NY address on the bag . I should have known , When I asked the butcher about them he said " That's not what we use " .

 

Thanks .

Will the butcher sell you some of the casings he uses ???  I'll bet he would...   buy some meat from him...    Heck, have him order you a case of butts or something...   If you develop a rapport with him you could get some good deals....   take him a few of the sausage you make to get his opinion...

I should have asked him . This was a Schnucks grocery store . They had beef suet and pork fat in 1 lb pkg. in the meat case . He also carries sausages from some of the well known sausage makers in Missouri . 

 

Not really sure why he sells something he does not use . Not his choice I guess . 

 

Dave , thanks for the replies ,

driedstick , how ya doin bud ? The casing worked good for what I was doin .  Dave was right , no uniform size .  The lengths were all about 5 foot , but the mm was up and down . Even over the length one end was narrow . 

 

After cleaning inside and out and a 2 day soak they were nice and soft . Stuffed up nice , and no tags on the casings . Worked in a pinch for a small batch ,

Hate to burst everyone's bubble, but the largest fresh sausage maker in the US uses chineese casings...

That may well be the case, and I would bet it's true....   I still prefer to support American workers and American products....    It doesn't make much sense to not do that...

I agree 100% about the U.S. product....of course I had no visibility to the COO when I purchased on-line...

I agree...  purchasing on line can be deceiving at best....   Check out Syracuse casing company....   they have an "About us " section that is amazing...

Came across this from Syracuse Casing Co.

 

 

Website:
 
Overview:
In 1975, company founder and President Peter Frey Sr. began offering local Syracuse, NY butchers with high quality North American Hog Casings for their sausage production needs. Catering to the strict demands of Italian, Polish, Irish, and numerous other specialty meat shops throughout the diverse Syracuse community, the Frey's quickly developed their own philosophical approach to casing production which still remains today. "Quality not Quantity." Nearly 30 years later, Syracuse Casing Co. provides the same selected natural hog casing with a clientel that ranges from housewives, small specialty shops, to some of the largest sausage producing corporations in the world. Ironically as we enter into the new millennium, Syracuse Casing Co. is also passing the torch from one generation to the next. With a deep sense of pride and commitment, it is not unusual to still find Peter Sr. still actively working side by side with his employees, his oldest son Peter Jr. designing and maintaining production systems throughout our new innovative production plant , or his youngest son James directing activities of company marketing and E-commerce. We are proud of the recent completion of our new USDA certified selecting facility which remains located in the Syracuse community. We welcome you to tour our new facility through this site, and enjoy allowing the opportunity for you to become familiar with the Syracuse Casing Co. family.
 
I'll check them out next time I need casings!
