    The steaks here are great, but I also make sure that whenever I stop by I pick up some of their breakfast sausage, and also get some of their tortilla-crusted tilapias from the freezer. Both of those items are much better than the equivalents I've gotten elsewhere. It's quite a distance out of my way, sadly, so I don't get there as much as I would otherwise.

    Also, as I've probably already posted in this thread somewhere, Joseph's has some of the biggest, meatiest smoked ham bones around, if you're looking to make some bean soup next winter.

    Those are some of the finest hot dogs available. It's a great pleasure to have Joseph's around. Nothing but respect for the quality of their meat, and their service. Good to see this post!

    LTHers don't sleep on Joseph's hot dogs. Natural casing, balanced spice, incredible snap followed by a burst of juicy pure hot dog goodness. If one is motivated by this post Joseph's is closed on Sundays and out of natural casing dogs until middle or late next week. They make them in-house and occasionally run out.

    Joseph's uses hog casing for the hot dogs which may get tough with a rolling boil. I drop* into cold water and bring to a simmer, 185° to 190°, for 7-9 minutes for best results.

    *drop into the pot, not on the floor

    Gary,

    Does this lengthy simmer soften the snap a little bit?

    There is a sausage from Usingers whose skin verges on too tough. If a lengthy simmer softens it, this would be welcome news. Presently, I don't recall which sausage is the tough one.
