Grote & Weigel Revisited
So this time around with Grote & Weigel wasn't so bad. I cooked them in a frying pan and burned them to hell. I bit one of the plain ends off and wasn't turned on from these wieners as I have been in the past; however, I definitely wasn't as turned OFF as I was last week.
Maybe they've changed the recipe slightly. Maybe I haven't been having good luck with expiration/sell by dates. The uncooked wieners did feel a little greasy after sitting in the refrigerator for a week, but they cooked up fine.
Not to discredit Grote & Weigel, because I didn't notice anything particularly funky about the dogs this time, I must say that the true star of this "Sunday Communion" was my choice to top them off with Uncle Maynard's Hot Pepper Relish (and Gulden's Spicy Brown). I couldn't really taste much hot dog under all that relish.
I wasn't chewing on rubbery sheep intestines, so that's good.
Uncle Maynard's Pepper Relish cannot be beat. End of story.
I plan to do a special post for Uncle Maynard's Pepper relish soon.
This wiener tag team gets a 3/5!
