    Ok, Im looking online at sheep casings.  Some packages are as low as $8.99.  Some are shown to be around 50 bucks.  The cheaper packs say, ex: "pack of 142 casings"  How short are these casings in package like this?  I'm going to be making kabanosy.    Any help?

    Not famaliar with the "pack of 142 casings" term but I use Syracuse Casing and never had any complaints. I see they're currently getting $35 for 100 yards of 20/22mm. http://www.makincasing.com

    usually between 1' and 2', cheap chinese casings.  Syracuse Casings are domestic and high quality.  You get what you pay for.
