The summer sun brings an abundance of outdoor activities and some of the best outdoor activities include charcoal and tongs.  We’ve got a wide selection of natural casing Old World sausages for you to toss on the grill.

A customer favorite, this time of year, are Nueske’s hefty Big Dogs.  These hot dogs are nearly 8” long, warranting them the impressive name.  They’re not only generous in size, but also in flavor.  Nueske’s Big Dogs are smoked over glowing embers of Applewood and blended with special seasonings, passed down from generation to generation of Nueske family members.  Just like all our smoked brats and wieners, Big Dogs also have a natural casing and are made from the highest quality pork and beef (no “variety meats”, here!).  Try Nueske’s Big Dogs on the grill or skillet; they’re fully cooked, so all you need to do it warm and serve.  Or try something new: Nueske’s Mexican “Corn” Dog recipe… it has everything that represents summer in Wisconsin… Big Dogs, fresh corn, cheese, and a touch of Serrano pepper heat, if you desire!   Check out the recipe, below:
