I know what you mean. I wanted to try a natural casing product but could not get a hold of one here. I was able to get VB natural casings, but it was going to cost me an arm and leg. I was serving Best Kosher but they went up just enough to get my eye wandering. I recently tried the Farmland 7 to 1 natural casings that just became availiable in our area. I really like them, when I get them in it takes everything to keep my son out of them. I am opening for the season on the 28th of April. So I will let everyone know what the response was on them. They taste as good as my Bests do, and they are bigger, but the same price. So the perceived value is greater. I just love that NC snap! Hope all my customers will too. As far as I know, I willl be the only guy in the tri-county area here serving grilled NC dogs. The only place you can get them around here is at private golf clubs. Wish me luck. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
