  3. You’re down south enough, they should be in your local supermarket (maybe not the big chainstores) they should have hog or sheep casings readily. If not, the internet is loaded with lots of sausage supply sites, check your local butcher, he might sell you smaller quantities. [​IMG]
  4. I normally get them done when I have a hog butchered, but the proccessor said they are going to stop doing them.
    I thought maybe I'd start proccessing my own hogs.

  6. There is a site called the Sausage Maker (www.SausageMaker.com ) that has all kinds of casings, flovors, instructions, etc.

    I second Dutch's recommendation. So far, I like the DeWied brand best. There are a number of web sites out there that sell them, so you might shop around, taking shipping into consideration of course.

    Other local sources for me at least are:

    Bass Pro Shops
    Academy Sports

    I prefer the DeWied, but if in a pinch, I can go out to these stores and get a package.
