    Backyard, morning..  I really like the natural casings.... I love the "snap" when you bite into them... like the "old days" as a kid growing up...

    You can twist them, link them, ring them, and they are a natural food product.... of course I am an old phart that likes old stuff and they are primarily for dogs, brats and the like..... All depernds on what you are making...   Dave
