Well the store bought kind is smoked..so think they prob need to be smoked to be true to form. The problemo with trying to make ho made dawgs is if you want em to be like the store bought stuff is they need to emulsfied. Which requires either an emusifying moochine or running them through the food processor in small batches in order to get em liquified. Think if a person wanted some it be mo betta to just go buy some at the store. Now I watched a butcher make some commecial models one day and it took about 5 years to get to where I could eat em again. If you smelled some of the spices they use it would make a grown man puke..dont even get speaking of the nasty fat meat they used. I would not want to go through that again. Just trying to touch all the bases here. Nathans is hard to beat. Save the meat for a more noble project.

That's kinda the point of making them yourself, if you don't care for rooters
& tooters you don't have to put them in!!!

Wittdog - great looking sausage! Your boys must be great little guys. Mine are grown and gone off to school. I am happy for them but, this empty nest thing sucks. On the other hand, I can get after making some sausage to help ease the pain

Hot dogs are done….I think if I didn’t use old hickory the color would be like the storebought kind…but everything is better smoked and these are presmoked…Wifey and boys like them a lot….

Time to take a Bath(little tip…I like to submerge instead of showering the sausage….no wrinkles that way )

Sliced
