    Aloha Friends,

    Are there any good sausage making suppliers on the west coast that I can order casings from?  Seems like the ship time from New York and MidWest take longer than I would like.

    They are in Detroit but have you tried Butcher Packer?

    Hey Val

    What size casings?

    Collagen or hog?

    Hi solaryellow,

    Yes, I've heard of them.  I was just wondering if there were any other closer to Hawaii. 
    Hi Todd, 

    I caught your post on the "Spam" loaves. I am planning to do mine soon. I'll let you know how they turn out. [​IMG]

    I have an order coming in from the Sausagemaker in a few days.  I'm just trying to locate a supplier that is closer to Hawaii.  I'm using mostly 29-32 mm hog casings for now.

    Take care all   [​IMG]

    Hey Val did ya ever ask your butcher or the guy behind the meat counter at the local grocery store?

    You know they have a stock of them and shipping has already been paid for! jJust a thought.

    I often get mine from them guys and they give them up cheap. most of the time.

    Got a market in town that makes their own sausage and that is where I got my last two batches. I do keep some LEM as a back up

    Aloha Dan and Scarbelly,

    The butchers at the grocery stores that I frequent (Foodland, SafeWay) don't bring them  in.  Although I haven't asked the butchers at Costco yet.

    I will need to check the very few  mom and pop stores here on the island.
