    I like Mountain View hot links made here in Oklahoma. Great fried or on the grill. Looks like they ship.
    http://mtnviewmeatco.com/
     
    Here is the link to the ones Bushie was talking about. Pittsburg hot links. They ship also. I have eaten at the restaurant twice. Enjoyed them both times. They serve them deep fried with their own label hot sauce on every table. I have only eaten the original Pittsburg hot link made on Northeast Texas for over 100 years. A very unique and mild hot link small in size and very coarse ground.

        DL, those Munster links sound real good to me. They might ship a small quantity? It's that crunchy skin that is hard to find. Tell em you heard about em on Roadfood... and that you will make a report.

        For an easy to find good hot link my fav is still Hillshire Farms All Beef.

        Several name grocery brands make a jalapeno cheese sausages shaped like a hot dog. They are good I think. Not a hot link but... they are spicy. I love the jalapeno flavor!

          Those at Mtn. View look pretty good and that seems to be a very fair price for them.

          Would it be ok to freeze them as I can't eat 12 pounds in a week...LOL despite what me wife might say. Thanks for the link HDt.

            You're welcome Dennis
             
            Freezing the hot links should not be a problem. The USDA website stated cooked sausage was OK to freeze up to two months.

              Do you have an idea about how long it takes to receive them?

                Freezing might even make them better??? It does for tamales... ot at least I think so.

                  I had some hot links from Dickey's the other night but that wasn't the real surprise....... On Mondays the special is half a smoked chicken, 2 sides and bread for $7.99. It was the biggest half a chicken I have ever seen. The taste reminded me of the hot links so it could be the type of wood they use. Any chance it is mesquite?

                        Well, at least most of you you didn't use "sausage" and "hot links" in the same sentence.  They are not the same thing at all, of course.  Texas or Louisiana hot links are those smoked "fat weenie" things like Blue Ribbon, Johnsonville and others package for sale in stores.  Which is about the only way you're going to get them around here too.
                        Hot links may be beef or pork, or both, but I avoid like the plague any that contain mechanically dismembered chicken parts or anything resembling same.  I see some brand names being bandied about here, and some of the really famous ones are also the ones that contain...  don't make me say it twice.  The ones you have to really watch out for are those big boxes of very red colored ones.  For anyone who wants a list of brands I will eat and those I don't, find my e-mail address at KC5JK.com and ask me for it. 
                        You can get hot links at most all barbecue restaurants and a lot of soul food places in SoCal.  But here in Texas, forget it.  If anybody serves them ready to eat around Houston, by all means, let me know.  It's a nuisance thawing out one or two links and firing up the King Kooker on the porch just for myself.

                          Most of us who have been on here for a while don't appreciate your Condescending Attitude. "Well, at least most of you you didn't use "sausage" and "hot links" in the same sentence." They are not the same thing at all, of course."  You're talking to those of us who have been to the Horse Show & County Fair.

                          It's a nuisance thawing out one or two links and firing up the King Kooker on the porch just for myself.  I can understand why you spend a lot of time eating alone. No one likes to hang out with a AH that is as self- centered  and egotistical as you.
                           
                          There are many places to get good Red Hots where you are, but we'll be damned if we will tell you where they are!
                           
                          Move your Ass back to SoCal because you obviously mistake us for someone who gives a S--- about you or your preferences.

                              FoodBMe, Perhaps your retort was a bit strong. Weinies tend to bring out the regional emotions, don't they?  Please remember there are some very nice people who live or formerly lived in SoCal who take demeaning remarks about their homeland a bit seriously. Some of those folks have the wherewithall to delete posts on this site.
                              Consider that a warning, Please.

                                None of you pro hot dog or concession guys sell hot links?

                                They were once sold at convenience stores around N Texas but now it's mostly sausages.

                                  We use to have them at convenience stores here in Tulsa too. For a limited time we had them at QuikTrip stores for two for a dollar.

                                             ...says who????

                                          Mr. Webster's definition of sausage: : a highly seasoned minced meat usually stuffed in casings of prepared animal intestine; also : a link or patty of sausage

                                          A "hot link" is nothing but an over seasoned (hot) & over sized wiener.  In my area it is very hard to find a good one that does not contain chicken.     A "hot link" is a sausage.

                                            I agree with tiki on the JC Potters Hot Links. I don't care for their Smoked Sausage but the Hot Links are just the right spice and heat for my taste.

                                              I wish we had Quik Trips out in the West. Superior  stores.


                                              We have QT Stores in AZ & we're "Out West"!. They're building a bunch of them in the Phoenix area. And yes, their take out food service is terrific! 


                                              OK! even Further West!
                                              I guess you could really say they're a Western chain anyway. Maybe they want to become the Wawa
                                              of the West. (Say that 3 times fast)

                                                  HD, so no more hot links at QT?

                                                  I saw a new thread about QT but could not tell from their web site if they sell hot links or what kinds of hot dogs / wieners / sausages they sell.... anyone?

                                                  What about Circle K.

                                                  None of you hot dog pros sell hot links???

                                                    Out here in AZ, Circle K and QT serve a Spicy hot dog/sausage but it's not a traditional hot link.

                                                      Thanks Foodb. Do they just call it a spicy sausage? I guess a tridetional hot link has a casing? Although Hillshire Farm hot links have been around for many years and they have no casing. The old style hot links had a great snap to them.

                                                        The QT on Preston in Plano calls it a smoked jalapeño sausage.

                                                          I guess not so many places sell hot links any more. :~(
