Brooklyn Hot Dogs
Made from simple, natural ingredients without hormones or antibiotics. these extra-long (about 8-inch), artisanal gluten-free hot dogs are for anyone who wants to elevate their hot-dog experience.
The dogs, which were created by two long-time friends in Brooklyn, New York, boast classic, mildly smoky flavor with well-balanced spices and the satisfying snap of natural casing.
Yes, they’re pricey, but, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. In this case, it’s top-quality meats with no nitrates or fillers.
Available in five flavors (Classic Beef, Beef and Pork, Buffalo Chicken, Pepperoni and Gyro), they’re a delicious option for every meat-lover at the barbecue.
FYI, the company recommends “hydrotoasting” the hot dogs to achieve optimal texture and flavor—a method that involves simmering the franks in a ¼-inch of water. But you can use any method you like to cook them and still get great results.
