White Hots (Rochester white hot dogs)

Recipes for all sausages

Postby DanMcG » Fri Mar 09, 2012 9:54 pm

This is odd as I posted earlier today with a picture of a couple local ingredients labels from two local sausage makers. but the post didn't appear.
It couldn't be me, But must be the solar flares..

Anyways For Toms quest for a NYS white hot, these are the two best ever made in Syracuse NY, and Meiers & Ranz is now gone.

Cool!

I've had some of Hofmann's other franks, but not the the snappy griller.....I'm sure Wegman's has them here.

I can remember back in the 80's Wegman's carried large packages of whites....not sure who made those...but they were pretty good.

The ingredients label is interesting because it could possible describe the acids necessary to stabilize the emulsion, like I'd mentioned with mayo.

I bet it was the "coney" from Meiers and Ranz, they were very popular in the area and people who buy a white Hofmanns dog nowadays almost always refer to it as a coney.

Wegman's carries the Snappy Grillers in several pound bags, down here. I notice that one leads with veal and doesn't mention lemon, and the other leads with pork and does mention lemon, and both are Syracuse versions. While I realize there is no one true white hot, I think I'm approaching a reasonable formula. But I think what I'm running up against with my friends is the rest of the sausage experience, particularly getting the right texture. I think the sheep casing gives me the right snap. Trying to achieve this without being able to taste a real one continues to be a fun challenge, if frustrating.

white hots

Aloha folks,
Western NY native here, but am in the Army and have not lived in NY for many, many years. Some local professional sausage makers in Hawaii advertise that they can do specialty items. I'm thinking of trying to bring a recipe to one and asking them if they can make it. I had no idea it would be so hard to find a recipe! I know I could order online. Anyhow, that's when my Internet search brought me to this forum. It sounds like you know what you are talking about and I wonder if you would be willing to give me your best guesstimate for a recipe! Thanks!

Just a quick update if you're taking notes Tom.
It must be that Meier & Ranz has been out of business long enough for the Hofmanns company to borrow the name "Coney".
Hofmans was always the "snappy griller", but a white dog around Syracuse has always been referred to a coney.

welcome to the forums Goldenhill, where abouts are ya located?
Zweigle's in Rochester NY are the best, but a milder seasoned dog then the Syracuse style white hot.
The problem with coming up wit a recipe is which great recipe do you want to try to copy

Looking to try and come close to a Ziglers white hot reciepe I have a good basic recipe but there are a lot of variables in the ingredients Such as which ones to add and how much dextrose,nonfat dry milk,ginger,coriander,lemon zest and detrose. If I could get a basic guide I could refine it. anoughter great hot dog years ago was the Tobins white hot long gone. Ready to start playing :drool:

Rytek Kutas' bockwurst recipe is a good start for proportions, but you'll also want to look at hotdog spice proportions, too. Mine has ended up being informed by a combination of frankfurter recipes, bockwurst recipes, Sleight's white hot recipe listed earlier in the thread, and for the Syracuse style it turns out that Len Poli's Swiss Hot Dog recipe (also mentioned earlier) is a good foundation. Texture is still an issue, but I found that multiple passes through the 1/8" plate makes an acceptable batter, as long as you keep it well-chilled. My ancient and honorable Cuisinart with the straight-sided bowl makes an ok batter, but you really have to be careful about the heat from the blade, and you have to stir with a spatula a couple of times to lift down in the corner where the base of the bowl meets the side.

When using your food processor do your emulsions in small quanities and don't be afraid to add some ice water to the emulison you will find it works well

These are not the best, or worst, sausages in the world. But the article may help other hobbyists make a decent hot-dog using non-commercial equipment:

OK, I know I am late jumping in here, but I just found the place.

Newbie sausage maker (I have one 20 and one 60 pound batch under my belt so far) and would love to be able to produce some of these whit hots. Wegman's is 40 minutes from home so I go infrequently, and of course I am HOURS from the Rochester area. Grew up visiting relatives in Rochester and eating these white hots...cannot get enough of them...unless of course I could produce them at home!

So, has anyone perfected a recipe they would be willing to share yet?
