Half Smokes

On of the biggest tragedies is that Washington DC area's indigenous hot-dog sausage is becoming less and less available.

The Half Smoke.  Different from a brat or a kielbasa, and are eaten like a hotdog, on a bun.  They have a unique little zing to them. 

They used to be available in every grocery store around here.  Briggs and Eskay brands.  Those have been bought up by bigger conglomerates and they don't make the half smoke in such quantities, certainly, that every Safeway could carry it.  I have found a local to me source in Shopper's Food Warehouse and go there just for the dogs.
