Hot Links, where to find the best ??? - Wed, 06/14/06 4:19 PM

Ok, I am taking my dog to the vet in Terrell Texas yesterday. I saw a sign that said "East Texas Hot Links", or was it all one word "hotlinks"? Anyway, I live in east Texas and have never tried one. My bad!!! I could't stop since the dog was with me but I've got to try one.

So now the question is, who makes the best hot links?

My personal favorites are from J.C Potter, here in Oklahoma----they make two different hot links---one comes in an 8-pack and is made with chicken---it's boring---the other is sold in 10lb boxes and is beef and pork--this is a KILLER Hotlink anyway you serve it---especially smoked!!---but egually satisfying cut up in chunks and simmered in a good sauce till hot as an appetizer. I also split them and fry em up for lunch!Got into hot links back in 72 when i was living in nthe Quarter---never found any as good as those in southern Louisiana untill i was introduced to these Potter ones---BTW--they make wonderful bacon and saugae too---and the ONLY "Light" product i ever really likes--their Lite breakfast sausage is wonderful!!!---grease free and still tasty!!

The ones I've had were at Pittsburg Hot Links in Pittsburg.

You'd be able to find them at various places in towns like Mt. Pleasant, Gilmer, and Longview. All those are quite a bit east of Terrell, though!

Bushie, I've had a Pittsburg at first monday in Canton, Tx. It was good. I think the "East Texas" may be diff.

Oh, when I was a kid they had great hot links at Cabbels stores in Dallas. I would save my mowing $$ and ride my bike up to get one. I always chased em down w/ an RC coala, mmmm. You got em out of a small white oven near the counter. They were real snappy skined and served on white bread. I have yet to find a hot link like those. Wish I could!!

And oh, Tiki, I have seen the J. C. Potter brand here in Texas. Not sure it was a hot link though, sausage maybe. I will try some of whatever it is since you like it so much.

And, hot links were a favrite late night snack at my poker game. I did a study of the ones sold in stores in Dallas, and what folks liked the best. The winner was Hillshire farms all beef, second was Earl Cambell. This was out of about 50 poker playing hot link snackers.

Actually, the Pittsburg hot link is the original "east Texas hot link". Those stubby little dark things ARE geniune east Texas hot links.

There are lots of different sausages called hot links, but you had asked about "East Texas" ones.

Bushie, I am always humbled by your food knowledge! And I thought I was smart... I hope to get back to Terrell soon and will probably report back that they are selling Pittsburgs.

Now for a real challange, who made those links sold at Cabbels in Dallas back in tha ??? 50s. Man were they good! I have yet to find anything close to the same.

Howdy,

I, too am an East Texan. Well, SE Texas; grew up in Beaumont. Now I live up in Shreveport/Bossier City: the de-facto capitol of E. Texas ;)
What about Earl Campbell hot links? I ask because I'll soon be serving them at my hot-dog cart. Anyone?

Being a NY'er born and bread, although with family in Texas since '63, on my last trip to the Lone Star State, I was determined to get a "genuine" Texas Dog.
Imagine my shock when I mentioned to my cousin that I wanted to try one of these delicacies while I was there - and he gave me a blank look and said (in that drawl he's acquired), "Texas Dogs? What are they?"
Somewhat chagrined, I tried to explain....sigh....another myth exploded in front of my eyes!

Earl Campbell links are really good. They are more like what I've always thought of as a "hot link"; firm and spicy. Your customers will like them.

Sorry, can't help ya there. I did some searching, but the only reference to Cabbel's I found was on some discussion board about Dallas history, but they didn't say much about it.

Those links sure sound good, though!

Lol Paul, you would have gotten the same response from me. But, a foot long with some Texas style chili, covered with cheddar cheese, jalapenos, and Frito's on the side might be a Texas thing?

Hey Larry, welcome! I am actually from Dallas but now live just east at lake Tawakoni. About Earl Cambell links, they are real good I think, but they did get beat out by Hillshire Farms all beef at my poker game. Hillshire's are way more expensive though. I think Eerl's would be a good choice for what you are doing. Those J.C.'S sold in the 10lb. box, that Tiki mentioned, might be worth checking out but I have never had one. And good luck in LA!

Bushie, thanks for the encouraging word about Earl Campbell hot-links. If nothing else they've got big name recognition ;)

I was born in Winnsboro, neighboring town to Pittsburg Texas. I think the Pittsburg Hot Link is the best! I have noticed if you go to the supermarket it may say Pittsburg Hot Link, but it is not always what you get at the restaurant.You don't eat the REAL Pittsburg link in a hot dog bun...you eat it with crackers and HOT Sauce! Now... for a hot dog link... EARL is the best. They may be spicy....but they are yummy!

Papa Joe was looking for the name of the hot link sold at Cabell's in Dallas in the 50's and 60's.  I grew up in Tarrant County and the 7-11 stores sold a hot link the same way that you described at Cabells.  These hot links were made by Herby's Sandwiches in Fort Worth. They were crunchy on the outside and spicy inside and you got two pieces of white bread for 25 cents.  The best hot links then and now.
It's possible that Clouds Sandwiches bought out Herbys Sandwiches, but Clouds hot links are nothing like Herbys.

I second the Earl Campbells hot links, they're available in some markets here in KC and pretty good

Local place here in KC- Fritz's- has excellent meats and sausages of all kinds, italian, garlic, brats, chorizo, andoulie and hot links, serve them for lunch and of course you can buy what you want, outstanding jerky also.

Bj's, wow,,, that sounds like them, thanks! But ohh, no longer made. what a shame! :~(

I would save my $$$, ride my bike to Cabbels and buy two of those hot links. An RC Cola was my drink of choice to wash them down with. There was no 7-11 back then that I remember. I think they might have bought out Cabbell's (spelling in question?) at some point.

I think Earl's will sell good. They would be what I would choose. You still around Larry?

Papa Joe, I may have found a hot link almost as good as what you got in the 50's at Cabell's and I got at 7-11's in Fort Worth.  Have you been thru Munster Texas.  Stop
at Fischer's Meat Market in Munster, Texas, west of Gainsville on  Hwy 82.  Turn 2 blocks north at only red light in town.  Hot links are beef and pork with crunchy skins and spicy inside.  Also try the smoked cheeses.  It worth a trip some Saturday.
Let me know how you like them.

Ok everyone, where can I order the best available Texas hot link? I've had hot links from only one place and that was here in NC at Dickey's BBQ. I know links are probably an afterthought for them so come on and help out a guy.

So now the question is, who makes the best hot links?

Well, there was this great place for hotlinks in Orange, Texas back in 1954, but I can't recall the name.

Dl, hey... folks in NC know allot! I will be trying a Dicky's hot link. Their brisket was once good. It might be good in your area? It's kinda bland now at the first Dicky's location. :~(

Dickey's brisket is not bad here, but I prefer their hot links, pulled pork, and the wife their ribs. I don't cook ribs as often as I used to so she will order them their sometimes. She also likes the italian marinated chicken breast but I don't associate that with a Texas smoke shack.

I do like their baked potato casserole, rather tasty. I always get their hot barbecue sauce, I could actually eat it with fresh bread.

I am thinking I can make it if I go try it again. I am able about 50-60% of the time to taste something and figure out what is in it. I might try and see if the wife is in the mood for ribs tonight so I have a reason to go there.

If I do I will see if I can replicate it here in the confines of our lovely palatial estate, LOL

LOL, thanks Dennis! I am kinda the same way as you. I can usually figure out how to make almost anything after I taste it a few times. And... try making it a few times. I did say "almost"! :~)

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.

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."

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.

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, .....


   ...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.

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)

Circle K owned the market out here until QT came to town. Now Circle K is scrambling to keep up. They're Remodeling all their stores to upgrade their foodservice sections

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.
