    Persimmon Provisions in Barrington has pork and lamb casings and would be able to get back fat for you if they don't have any in at the moment.

        I have to agree that Westerly Packing is the place to go fo anything needed for sausage making.

      You can also get casings at Bass Pro Shops, if you're local stop and shop does not carry them.

      I have had good luck getting fat back at farmer's markets, including the winter one in Pawtucket. Most of the meat producers either will have it or will bring it the following week if you ask.

        I've gotten casing at Whole Foods (a bit expensive) and at the butcher shop on Gano (very cheap but I had to get a largish pack.).

          I am not familiar with the winter market. Where in Pawtucket and what day(s)/times? Thanks for your reply.

          Stop and Shop sells casings they are the small 1 1/2" size good for about 20 pounds of sausage. If you want Beef Middles or Bungs, Westerly Packing has them. they are the biggest sausage and dried sausage producer in RI. Unless your looking to make things like Capacola, or Soupy then have those size casings. If you need fat bck for sausage just use pork butts they are about 25% fat. to lean.
