Hazle Brand Frankfurters Wed, 05/18/11 8:12 PM (permalink)
I got a great deal on Hazle Brand 12" Frank's at Redner's.  $10.98 for a 5 pound box of 20 1/4 pound dogs.
 
I haven't had these dogs in a while, but I remember them being very good.  I believe this is the same brand served at Torony's in Wilkes-Barre.  When they had their stand on Route 315, they used to broil them.
 

 
As soon as I get my hands on some foot long rolls, I'll let you know how they were.

    I've never heard of that brand. But that's a heck of a price. For that matter, I don't believe I've ever heard of quarter pound foot-longs.
     
    Is it difficult to find foot-long buns where you are? I can find them in my local supermarkets.

      I've never seen foot-long buns here.  Dog to bun ratio is quite important.

        Hazle is a local producer.  Their website lists several retail location, I'll have to check them out.
         
        As for the buns.  The last time I got them was at Wegman's, but we also have a local bakery(Bakery Delite) that should have them.

          The Pickle Barrel in Pittsburgh, before it burned down recently, used a Schaible, footlong bun to ensconce its fine, beef/pork, footlong dogs. But maybe I'm not spelling it right. This was the best footlong bun I've ever encountered. Yet, I can't find it online. Any Pennsylvanians familiar with the company? Spelling?

              I certainly hope those Hazle dogs are tasty, since they are far from healthy.  They are only 12.5% protein, but are 30% fat!  (83% of their calories are from fat.)

                    A little common sense makes the problem go away.  Get 6"buns and cut the dogs in 1/2 ----now that wasn't difficult , was it?
                     
                    Next problem?

                      For my  grandchildren   the fun of having a foot long hot dog is having  a foot long  hot dog.....................cutting it in half  would  not  "cut it"  for them.  Unfortunately,  I  have  not found any  footlong  hot dogs  or  foot long rolls in this  area.  I  did briing  some back  from an  out of  state trip last summer  and they  loved them.

                              Note that the name of the Bakery is actually Schaible, although it's mispelled in the caption. Not too much attention to detail over there at the Morning Call.
                               
                              I guess they are out of business, nothing turns up on Google except a lot of nostalgic stuff and Ebay items. They must have made dam good rolls, for them to be shipped clear across PA from Easton to Pittsburgh.

                                Re: Schaible Hot Dog Buns, I am apparently in the Twilight Zone. Not only did I imbibe said frankfurter buns--- which ensconced footlong Smith Provision Beef/Pork dogs---several times whence visiting The Pickle Barrel in Pittsburgh, but I followed up by speaking with customer service by phone at the factory. 
                                 
                                 Now, in agreement with Ken's findings, I can't even locate the place at all. The next stop is to call Scott (the owner of the currently closed Pickle Barrel) at the diner he's working at, to confirm my suppositions.  My recollection is that the bakery was in Western Pennsylvania.

                                  Could you possibly be thinking of Schwebel's:

                                  I brought home some Schwebel products on road trips - they make pretty good stuff.

                                    By gosh, Holmes, I believe you've got it. Yes, Schhwebels. A great footlong bun. Another product mystery solved by David NYC.  Much thanks. I feel somewhat vindicated, and a little less crazy.

                                      For regular size hot dogs, my favorite bun of late is the Calandra's (of Newark, New Jersey) "long roll".... essentially a small Italian bread to hold your frank, usually available in Shoprite, Stop & Shop and King's in N.J. Makes it more of a meal.
                                       
                                        Warm 'em up in the oven.  They're the ones in the upper righthand corner of the photo here: http://calandrasbakery.com/rolls.html

                                        Don't forget the maltodextrin, hydrolyzed soy and wheat gluten protein, and sodium nitrite.  With all that filler and chemicals I'm surprised there's room for meat.  No wonder they were cheap, it's mostly bread...
