Natural Casing Hot Dogs

Sep 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Hot Dog Information

As with virtually all sausages, dogs must be in a casing to be cooked. Traditionally, this casing is made from the thoroughly cleaned small intestines of sheep, and the products are known as “” hot dogs or frankfurters. These kinds of hot dogs are preferred by some for their firmer texture and the “snap” that releases juices and flavor when the product is bitten.

Kosher natural casings are difficult to obtain in commercial quantities in the US, and therefore kosher hot dogs are usually either skinless or made with reconstituted collagen casings.

Popular brands that have natural casings are Sabrett, Smith, Jordan, and Vienna.
