Many years ago my Detroit relatives would bring treats from the big city with them when they would visit us in Alpena. One in particular was a hot dog. It had a natural casing and a slightly spicy flavor. Unfortunately my relatives (great aunt and great uncle) have since passed on and no one in my family can remember where these hot dogs came from. I don't believe they were Kowalski hot dogs.
I know this was 30 plus years ago ,but some of you hounds may remember such a wonderful hotdog!!
