for snack sticks I typically use collagen casings which pretty much have an indefinite shelf life. go get em

try in Buffalo New York - they have about anything you need supply and equipmentwise for making all sorts of sausage -

Just a note - When I make "Slim Jims" , snack sticks I don't use casings - they just sorta hand together during cooking/dehydrationbut some people prefer the little "snap" they get when they bite into a sausage with a casing around it.

I would say it depends on what avaiblein your area. In my area one of the tractor supply type store has them and alos Scheel's store and a few of the grocery stores carry them. But when they are out I look on-line. So it just depends on if I can get them locally for a fair price or not. Just my 2 cents.

I have a real good natural foods grocery store locally with a great butcher shop. They stock casings, seasoning mixes, sawdust, twine, burger bags, hog rings, various cures. If I can't get what I need there, I go through Sausage Maker, or,,, or I have other online sources I've visited, but not ordered from yet as well. These listed should get you in as much trouble as the rest of us.

I had taken the casings off so no one would complain about them. By the way I use collagen from .
