Smokehouse Glenn constructed his own homemade natural casing wiener. Glenn already carries Dearborn and Koegel natural casing hot dogs but now Glenn wants to create his own recipe. Glenn is satisfied with his flavoring combination and he is a believer in using natural casing whenever working with hot dogs so he is anxious to see what kind of interest he can generate. Several customers were interested in Glenn processing a venison hot dog, which is in the works.
The one change right away that Glenn wants to change is increasing the diameter of the hot dog, this batch is undersized to what he would really like them to be. When it comes to “ol’ style wieners”, Glenn uses only lean beef and pork and his test kitchen mixture of seasonings that are his own secret! The other element of ol’ style hot dog making is smoking the meat after it’s been cased. Along with the courser grind of the meat, which is again, an ol’ style approach to hot dog making, smoke flavoring to hot dogs sets themselves apart from the other companies that cut corners to speed up processing time. When a butcher takes the time to process meats, it is reflected through
the great tasting flavor of the product.
Ol’ stlyle process – ol’ style flavor! You can definitely taste the difference with Smokehouse Glenn’s great products from Northern Meats in the Country Village, Ishpeming!!
