Out west here in Idaho, we don't have the source or the vendors that could rival that of the famous Fred's Franks that you guys back east are able to enjoy.
We obviously have the Hormel and the Ball Park franks readily available at local grocery stores. Some of the larger chain stores carry the Hebrew National and Nathan's franks. In my humble opinion, Nathan's is a hard hot dog to beat. Freds Franks uses Pearl hot dogs.
Are Pearl franks really that much better than Nathan's??
Good (I'd really like to try a Pearl) eggin'
