      Thanks Burger Boy. I just went by and picked some up. They are pretty expensive compared to LAX-C as described below, but it was close and they were open, so it worked out great. As far as the European Sausage Kitchen goes, i have bought casings from them in the past but they were closed today. thanks all.

    2. I saw them recently at LAX-C. That is on N. Main St, just outside of Chinatown. They were around $3.50 for a 50' package.

      I've never stuffed homemade sausage before but I've considered doing so lately. That's why the casings happened to catch my attention.

      1100 N Main St, Los Angeles, CA

        Do you know if they were cow, pork or lamb? I think those are the 3 kinds, right?

        1. Call European Sausage Kitchen. I've never asked, but they do make their own sausages in natural casings and I'd imagine that they'd sell you some. Better to call in advance and ask though. And get some of nearly every dried sausage they make. It's fantastic stuff.

            Not only the dried ones, also their fresh stuff is excellent: weisswurst, knockwurst, both mild & spicy Italian saussage, und so weiter ...

              I'm partial to the cured sausages, myself. But you're so right. The fresh ones are wunderbar.
