    Best Hot Dog I've Ever Had

    I love hot dogs. I've eaten many good hot dogs and some I'd rather not mention.

    Yesterday I had my first Feltman's Hotdog. It was transplendent. Why did it take 63 years for me to stumble across them, these weenies of the gods?

          I saw them at Publix the first time yesterday. Funny, there were 8 dogs in a 12.8 oz package. Strange. But the flavor.... I'll buy some and freeze them. I figure that Publix will drop them next time they do a re-set. I may have to start ordering online. Damn the cost...full weenie ahead.

          Oh man, you just had to do it, Bkhuna , start me on a mission to Publix to find that dog.

          We had Porter Road Beef hot dogs last night. Not a fan. We so seldom have hot dogs that the treat was ruined by the unusual flavor--not bad, just not as soul-satisfying as a good hot dog can be. Give us Vienna, Ball Park, or Nathan's instead.

          It'll be fun to give Feltman's a try, Bkhuna. Thanks!

            Vienna have always been my favorite. My Publix carried them for a few months when they first opened buy then stopped.

            Feltman's are now my top-dog. Strange packaging, but wonderful flavor. I actually ate one sans bun and toppings and enjoyed it.

            Thanks for giving me something to do this morning. I found 2 groceries in my area that carry them. They are both Fresh Market stores. I went to one of them and bought two packages. Going to try these with friends this week.

                Just ordered the 3 pack of the original with casing. We’ll see how well it does being shipped to the West Coast. Questions: which version did you buy t? did you smoke, grill or bake ‘em?

                    I love hot dogs but I don’t care for all-Beef hot dogs. I like a pork beef blend. I love Sahlen’s natural casing hot dogs that are made in Buffalo NY and Walnut Creek natural casing hot dogs that are made in central Ohio where I live.

                      I prefer a pork/beef blend as well. That's what we grew up eating.

                      That said, for a couple of brands, I'll go all beef because they're that good.

                      How did I not know this little bit of history. I lived for many years a stones throw from Coney Island. Spent many summer days at the beach there, will have to order some.

                      Placeholder

                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      Placeholder

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      Placeholder

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
