Do Kosher Sausage Casings Exist?

I've been trying for the better part of the last year to buy kosher sausage casings (edible) and all I keep coming up with is Devro. Unfortunately, my phone calls/emails have gone unanswered, and I'm not really interested in purchasing 1000+ casings from a commercial vendor. I'm just looking to make my own sausages this summer to grill, and would love to hear suggestions on where to find casings. I've checked with a few butchers in Manhattan and have basically been told that they don't exist (one such butcher sells their own "sausages" which resemble frozen logs of ground beef). Are kosher casings a cullinary urban legend, or do I just need to buy 1000 of them at a time?
