    Hebrew National makes natural casing franks?

    A lot of markets carry the Boar's Head natural casing dogs. I usually get them at the Reading Terminal.

    I had thought that Nathan's natural casing dogs were not available in this area. I look whenever I'm in a market, but I've only seen the skinless ones. But while placing an on-line order from Acme the other night, I noticed they had them, so I ordered a pack. So if you live near an Acme, they may be there. Otherwise, the Boar's Heads are your best bet.

    After going mainly with Boar's Head the past couple years, I've been giving Nathan's hot dogs in natural casings a chance the past few weeks since discovering they're now available in stores in this area (maybe I just have bad luck because the markets in Center City where I live are so small so there isn't the space for a big selection).

    My view is that Boar's Head has the better casing-induced "snap" to it. But I have a slight preference for the flavor of the Nathan's dogs. You may as well try both and decide for yourself.

    Unless you're cooking them outdoor on a grill, I advise pan or griddle-frying them until they're nice and blistered on the outside.

    If cost is not a matter, compare the both side by side. If cost is a factor, you'll want to go with the Nathans. Though Boars Head uses quality meats, it's a matter of the end taste results there. Let us know your results....

    Hi Diceross,

    You may want to consider patronizing one of your local merchants - Dietz and Watson, with their plant in Philadelphia. They make great natural casing franks under their own name and also under the Black Bear joker label for ShopRite.

    Both Acme supermarkets and Pathmark supermarkets in the Philadelphia area sell Dietz and Watson. The natural casing franks are usually sold in the service deli area, but sometimes are placed along with the Oscar Meyer and other mass markets franks in the dairy department.

    ShopRite in the Philadelphia area sells the Black Bear-labeled Dietz and Watson natural casing franks. They are often on sale for $2.99.

    You might want to see if any of your local markets carry Sabrett (brand) hot dogs. They are available here in Dallas in both skinless and natural casing. Of course, I prefer the natural casing.
    They can also be ordered online from Sabrett.

    I'm not sure if you have Shop Rite Supermakets in Philly but they have a store brand natural casing hot dog called Black Bear and they come in small 8-10 per pound or the ones that I buy which are quarter pounders. Enjoy!!!

    Hillshire makes natural casing hot dogs. At least I can get them in Northeast Wisconsin. Though there is NOT a lack of good natural casing hot dogs here. Heans meats,Miesfeld,etc. I think Hillshire is a national brand so see if you could find those. Johnsonville also makes a natural casing hot dog.
