Just my personal feeling. Everyone's opinion is their own.

Have a ton of fun with the grinder. It's amazing how many types of sausage you can make!
I love the 'snap' of a natural casing.

yeah, and the snap of a towel on the bottled water delivery guy's butt, i'll bet...

thanks very much, everyone. especially iljewel. and welcome.

i'll try the collagen ones i've already bought, but will certainly give natural hog and lamb casings a go.

Different casings for different things.

I think you'll be happy with your LEM.

Did you get different plate sizes?

It makes a difference for different outcomes.

Experiment and have fun with it.
