    Funny what you will do for something. I once flew from Boston to Florida to buy a couple of t-shirts from so guy selling them out on a deck.

    I like Nathan's, but the ones they sell here are the thin ones and skinless. This one id at least big with a thick casing.

    I had to show the box of lobster and mac that was hidden under you cooking table.

    I wouldn't kill for pearls, although I have for less :whistle: :laugh: , but I do like them. Great for a quick after work meal.

    90 miles, what did you do? drive to BJ'S here in Palm Bay like I do?? 15 minutes from the house. But IMHO they are better than Nathans and Sabretts.



  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    Thats the only way to get it. I understand.
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    I had it the last two nights. I got home at 8pm yesterday and made a quick one. I got the onion today. Adding Detroit Chili would have made it great.

    I thought cops ate donuts. :huh:
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    RD had the bigger Sabretts with the skin. I'll try that next. I had to drive to Bradenton BJ's fot the Pearls. I have to say Pearls customer service is excellent.

    National donut day. They were giving one free donut to everyone today.
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    That dog is funny. Im stealing it now.
  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,675

  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470

  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,675

    sorry that it didn't live up to your expectations, but the reason I can cost justify the $8.25 per pound cost to me for shipment here in Illinois is that I fix them different than most eggers. Pearl's IMHO are GREAT because of their unique blend of spices in the meat inside those natural casings. Unlike many eggers here who slice/dice and mutilate their Pearls thus burning off those spices I prefer to steam mine! Add a Varsity Club knock off chili sauce and diced onions and WOWSER you're outside Heaven's Gate looking in!

    And oh yes...also a 17" BlackStone gas fired griddle!

    You guys are killing me. I tried Pearls site looking for a close store with no luck.....and I do love hot dogs. Ron I'll second that Varsity knock off hot dog sauce, it is a keeper for sure.
  • dhuffjrdhuffjr Posts: 3,182
    These are on my got to try list too.
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    When I slowed down, I was doing 90.
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    They tasted good, just not anything but a good hotdog. Years ago in Michigan we had a restaurant called Lums. They advertised hotdogs steamed in beer. I'll put up Detroit chili against Varsity any day.

    See the loose burger

    I can tell you I have paid a lot for shipping for stuff in the past. I now own 32 hotdogs. That will last me a long time. To pay for overnight shipping is not event close to worth it. Or to order enough to be cost effective, then I would have more than I would ever eat. I do pay for Detroit chili to be shipped to me. worth every penny.
