One of my cookin' buddies has some property on the coast of North Carolina and he returned home from a week long trip this weekend. Usually he brings back shrimp, oysters, clams and the like, so when I get a call Saturday afternoon saying he needed to use my vacuum sealer I figured there would be some kind of samples to be had..... And there were. Hot Dogs. Yes,.. this dude traveled more than halfway across this great nation, through 3 airports, with 6 or 8 pounds of hot dogs in a cooler.
I've never had (or seen) this brand before. They are Carolina Bright Leaf brand. He sounded like a walking advertisement... "They are all beef and pork, only have 8 grams of fat, and a unique blend of special seasonings". So, I spiral cut two of them and cooked them up,.... I was all over them like a big dog. These guys don't hold back when listing the ingredients, most of which I could get behind..... I had a little hesitation about the "pork hearts", but at least it was not "chicken lips" or something.
Anyway, here they are in all their glory. These dogs get a thumbs-up from me, pork hearts and all.
