    I’ve been making sausage a long time, 20 years. I just ordered these this week and this is the worst batch of casings I’ve ever had. Lucky if they were 2 feet in length. Smaller than should be, closer to snack stick casing. Completely disappointed. Have had great seasonings from here for past 5-10 years but never get casings again.

    used these last year. good experience. This year was awful. absolutely none were 26-28mm. terrible fight to get them mounted onto our smallest horn. 16-20mm the predominate size. I’ve learned my lesson. No more Sausage maker casings in my kitchen.
