"We added the temp cheese to the chili dog seasoning. We loved it!!"-Sherri, customer
No. 158 has the signature chili dog taste you love from a blend of traditional herbs and spices that add depth with just the right amount of heat.
Cloves: Cloves are the flower buds of the clove tree, an evergreen. Cloves have a distinct and undeniable warmth that add depth to traditional chili flavors.
Cumin: Ground cumin has a very distinctive flavor with a warm, nutty, spicy notes. Commonly used in Texas cuisine, this aromatic spice is a top ingredient in most chili recipes.
Oregano: This aromatic herb has a pungent flavor that has earthy/musty, green, and minty notes. A common ingredient in chili, it adds depth to No.158
Chili Powder: Chili powder is a red-colored blend of dried and ground chili peppers that provide mild heat and savory notes that give chili its signature smokiness and color.
Our No. 158 blend is great on its own or paired with High-Temp Cheddar Cheese or High-Temp Habanero for a kick. For extra hearty chili flavor, add drained and rinsed chili beans to the meat before stuffing. We recommend about 24 oz. of pre-cooked beans to 25 lbs. of meat. No. 158 is also delicious with crushed jalapeno pepper for some heat.
For making traditional hot dogs, we recommend using Natural Sheep casings. They’re extremely tender and have a great “snap” when you bite into them, and durable enough to use in the smokehouse.
- 24-26 mm Sheep Casings (traditional wieners)
- 26-28 mm Sheep Casings (large wieners)
- 26mm Collagen Casings
For award-winning flavor, our No. 158 can be used to make delicious brat patties or even burger patties. Each B-unit of seasoning is pre-measured for 25 lbs. of meat. If making a smaller batch, measure out 1 Tbsp seasoning + ⅛ tsp of cure per pound of meat.
