Bryan Hot Dogs

Hi Everyone!
 
I was very surprised when I learned that my distributor carries Bryan Hot Dogs. I know they are kind of a southern thing and I did not expect to see them available here in New Mexico. I was looking for a 9 or 10 inch dog that isn't too fat and the 10 inch Bryan dog was on the list.
 
What is the the general opinion of Bryan Hot Dogs? I know some people think they're cheap and others think they're great. Are they something that just southerners seem to like? Is there anything unique about their taste?
 
I'd really appreciate some input / feedback.
 
Thanks!

    If you're getting a cheap price on Bryan, you're extremely lucky.  They're not very cheap around here, although I'd consider them competitive.  I love Bryan products, and if I can't get Hebrew National, I buy Bryan Beefy Jumbos.  Bryan is a great brand and extremely popular in the South.  Tip: Their Pampered Pork Sausage is one of my favorite products, too, and I've been using it for almost 3 decades.

    Oh, I forgot.  Yes, it's flavor and texture that I'm referring to.  I prefer their smoked sausages over Hillshire and Eckrich, etc. and I also enjoy their cocktail smokies, also.  I haven't tasted everything in their product line, but I'm a fan of what I've tied.

    Bryan products are made by the Sara Lee Corporation and the Hot Dogs and Smoked Sausage come off the same line as Ball Park and Hillshire Farm (Seasonings may vary a bit).

    Go figure, but Hillshire Farms' casing is tough and chewy when I grill it and Bryan's is perfect.  I switched to Bryan smoked sausage due to this, and partly because it has superior flavor/overall texture.  (Their Beefy Jumbos are almost as tasty as Hebrew National.)

    We used to only buy Bryon's for personal eating (we are from the South.... FL, GA, NC, SC and TN... yes we moved alot). We grilled them. They aren't too good simmered. At least that was our opinion. We are currently in Socorro, NM and to be honest, the real locals really don't have a strong opinion here. When we first got out here summer 2009, we had to suggest what to put on a hot dog (the "Socorro Special" is still the popular variation amongst the real locals... Mustard, Relish, Onions) . Maybe Santa Fe is different but I doubt it. We also sell at an on site auction in Albuquerque. Kinda the same problem from the real locals. The folks who moved to the area are more savvy about what to put on a dog. Even better is that we don't have to explain what Kielbasa is, nor sauerkraut. David is still explaining sauerkraut about once a month.

    You're serious about having to explain what sauerkraut is?

    Yes. Sounds strange but it's true. I'll be glad when we have worked our way back east far enough that we don't have to explain most of our food, including "Tennessee-Style Pulled Pork Barbeque". Seems no one out here knows what TN style BBQ is (we even had to explain what BBQ stood for). They love it but just didn't know what it was. Had to explain "Kielbasa". We apparently serve very exotic foods! " />
     
    Yep, New Mexico is a different world for us.

    Thank you, I'm stunned!  Of course, Roadfooders have mentioned foods that I've never heard of, so I guess I shouldn't be TOO surprised.  (But the "BBQ" really gets me!)

    What are you paying for these? Found a place that has them for $48.00 for 60, shipped frozen. Additional shipping fee, so guessing close to a buck apiece.
