Either that, or the Secret Staduim sauce may be something they make themselves. Having worked in catering and having managed a few concessions, I'd suspect that it's some kind of commercial brand simply because that's usually easier to source and to keep in stock and it stores longer.
It's a commercially-made product sold under the SportService label, but the recipe is definitely specific and there's actually a pretty good story behind it.

Cactus, there are a number of Woodman's stores in Wisconsin and even a few in Illinois (Rockford for sure). Look them up online and maybe you can find one closer than Kenosha.

That's an interesting observation about the Hoffy trucks you saw. The name is owned by Square-H Brands and sure looks to be CA-based, so maybe they were dropping off instead of picking up?

Dunno ... Why would a California hot dog maker be bringing product to Wisconsin? Lot of territory in between that the probably don't distribute to, at least not under Hoffy label.

We might have to be reviving this thread ... Perusing one of, not Steve's, books and finding all kinds of hot dog and sausage things that look interesting. Stay tuned ...

Sounds good! Maybe you and Beercuer should divvy up the recipes...

I'm thinking about slitting a hot dog lengthwise, filling it with cream cheese, wrapping it with bacon, and grilling it until hot all the way through and the bacon's fairly well-cooked. I think it might require a large hot dog and a mix of indirect and direct grilling.


I grew up on something similar to this - but different. My mother would take a "Kahn's" hot dog (advertised as "The Weiner the World Awaited!"), split it lengthwise all the way through except the ends, insert two hunks of "Cracker Barrel" Sharp cheddar cheese, wrap with bacon, pin with toothpicks and broil. She would turn the dogs over just once and pull them out when the bacon was crisp, the cheese melty-soft, and the dog done just right! Didn't need ANY condiments, it was just plain delicious!!!

Those do sound good! It's tough to go wrong with sharp cheddar...

Don't remember if we used Kahn's, that was a long time ago, but we'd make 300 or 400 of these for "Stag Night" when I was in high school.

Sorry, JPET... I have not been around for a while. The best place for you to get the Hoffy dogs is your local "Smart & Final" store. :bbq: :cheers:
