More chili dogs please!!


  • Power User

    So we started handing out some of the chili dogs and sure enough we got the “can you make some of those for me, they’re awesome!” Friday night we triple ground, stuffed, smoked, simmered, and packaged 80# of various chili dogs for some friends. We used high temp pepperjack, cheddar, we put some extra habanero pepper in some, and just plain. Got great reviews! I’ve never been a proponent of using pre-mixed spice but after struggling with hot dogs, I’ll never go back so keep the Excalibur1_1521474128718_IMG-0724.JPG 0_1521474128717_IMG-0723.JPG chili dog mix in stock!!

    @parksider Once again those look amazing! 80 lb? You guys must be having a great time doing all this, what are you making it out of? I know you have a couple guys contributing but this can’t all be wild game can it?

    Pretty much everything we make is 50/50 venison and pork. We did butcher a cow, but that’s another story…We do plan on venturing into the beef world but we have so much venison in the freezer that we are just trying to find new ways to use it up!!! I’m really impressed with the casings, the cellulose really allow the smoke in and they have great color. I had plenty of practice linking them this time so i’m getting faster but not overly consistent so we had to cut them down to fit in the bags. I’m surprised how well they stand up to the linking and twisting and so on. Ordering more supplies while there is free shipping!!!



  • @parksider They look great! Sorry I missed the fun.

  • @PapaSop these look very tasty. Ever tried wet brining for a few hours for more moisture? Sure, blame it on the adult beverages.

    I just finished 25 lbs of Jalapeño Summer Sausage and snack sticks. I used my new 44lb meat mixer from Weston. The mixer worked great. The only downside to it is that it is not easy to clean. The mixer is only welded on the outside, so strands of meat tend to get stuck in the corners.
    I also tried sodium phosphate for the first time instead of protein powder. Only needed 1/4 cup vs. 2-1/2 cups of protein powder. Flavor and texture was still excellent.

  • @PapaSop I don’t buy too many packaged sausages these days (thanks to Walton’s!) but these were very good. They were on sale for $3.99 so I figured I couldn’t go wrong!

    I used the above seasoning on the pork along with an extra dusting of cayenne. The ‘Chicken Red’ works really when used liberally on chicken or pork. I don’t normally use premixed seasonings but this one is good and work fast to infuse flavor. It gives everything a great color. It’s salty and garlicky with a little heat. I stumbled upon it by chance and have only seen it at a grocer an hour from me. I stock up any time I get that way.
