Hot Dog Selection

Hi everybody. Long time lurker, first time poster, lifelong hot dog lover here. I think that I'm pretty lucky to have a good selection of quality dogs available at my nearby supermarkets (Stop n Shop, Shaws). Between the two they carry Nathans, Grote & Weigel, Sabretts, Usinger, Saugy, Deutchmacher, anf Kayem. No matter what I'm in the mood for, I can find something to satisfy. I was wondering if there are any other readily available brands that I should be looking for. I really enjoy this forum and look forward to any suggestions or recommendations.

Thanks,
Chris

    What state are you in? Best's from New Jersey is a great all beef dog, but if it's available at a store near you it's the skinless version. Still a very good dog, but the natural casing frank available from the factory in New Jersey and select hot dog restaurants in North Jersey is better. Thumann's is a great natural casing beef/pork dog which I prefer to all of the other German style franks on the market. You are lucky to have Usingers available where you live. I have to order them from the company and have them shipped to me.

    I'm partial to Nathan's, but Hebrew National is also good. Boar's Head makes fantastic natural casing dogs. Slop some Cleveland Stadium mustard or some slaw on there....Ahhhh

    Roessler's yellow tag - delicious natural casing dog made in CT. I recently "rediscovered" them by placing an inquiry on this board - Hooray! Dial 1-800-hotdog9 for availability. I pick mine up directly from the supplier in Norwich, CT. $25/10 lbs. It sounds like a lot of hotdogs but most people find they can't eat just 1 and you end up going through them much faster than you would think, especially if you are having cookouts and parties.

    Mucke hotdogs are also made/sold in CT. They are good but I find them bland when compared to Roessler's.

    I think John Fox,that crafty old soldier of the hot dog wars, may have found some new fellow travelers in the 'roadfood' community in which to compare weiner info(an endless discussion topic if ever there was one).....being a relative newcomer myself,I bid welcome and encourage you all to leave your cholesteral anxieties behind and enjoy.

    I am in CT. Not sure where you are. I have always preferred Hummels but Mucke's will do. As far as the packaged supermarket kind I would have to say Nathans. I recently discovered a hotdog called Hummel Big Bites. I bought these at the Big Y in North Haven and as I was checking out the cashier told me they were her favorites. I told her I had not seen them before and she said they had been out for about a year. These were in a case near the deli. I bought a 5 lb package for $19.95. They have casings. Got them home and was not disappointed. Delicious. Bigger than regular Hummel hotdog and better tasting.

    I've been absolutely thrilled (and surprised) with Stop n Shop's own store brand all beef franks at the deli-counter. Served them at a BBQ a few weeks ago and they were a real hit.

    Hertz, I saw those on sale at S&S last week. I was wary of trying them though. Can you relate their taste to any other all beef dogs?
