Not all Maine red hot dogs are created equal.
Jordans, Kritchners, and Kayem are different formulas from the same packing plant. The Kayem NC ‘deli dog’ is the pick of this lot.
Bean’s is an small local packer, but their red ‘dogs contain too much non-meat/meat bi-product filler for my taste.
Old Neighborhood ‘dogs are the best red ‘dog up here (IMO).
We had Grote & Weigle ‘dogs in the local supermarkets for a while, and I tried both types available; I wasn’t impressed.
FWIW, I think the best ‘dog in Maine isn’t a red ‘dog, it’s one of the grilled ‘dogs served up at Bolly’s in Holowell.
