Default Canning Hot Dogs

I saw a writeup on the web by a woman who cans hot dogs. She makes a light BBQ sauce, cuts up her hot dogs in the sauce, boils it a few minutes, fills her qt. jars, and pressure cans at 10 lbs. (I'm guessing for 90 minutes).

Anyone try canning hot dogs before? This way or any way? Just wondering. Sometimes there are great deals on dogs at the store.

I know a lady who does something like that. She uses tomato sauce and hot peppers and calls them "hot weenies." She gave me a jar; they looked good, but i was afraid to eat them because she doesn't have a pressure canner.

Canning hotdogs does sound interesting though. I hope someone else knows if it's safe if they are pressure canned.

I'm going to try to can hot dogs and I'll report back. I'm going to use the Hebrew National all beef kosher hot dogs. What's the worst thing that could happen? They'll turn to mush and I'll have to throw the whole batch away.

I had about 50 pounds of brats,kelbasi and other assorted meats one year. to keep them from freezer burn i canned all of them. some of the jars I added hot peppers to which spiced them up real nice.

Pickled everyone of them-

I plan on packing them real tight and then putting beef broth into the jars. Bob and the kids eat them and I thought it would be a good idea to experiment now with hurricane season on the horizon. I am currently without power due to a storm so it's canned soup for meals today. I'll report back. I plan on doing this Sunday since I can't cook on the Sabbath.

The hot dogs came out great! I used pint jars since we would have more hot dogs in a quart jar that we could eat in one sitting. I cut the hot dogs in half (Hebrew National beef regular size-not the huge pounder size) and heated them up in beef broth. Then I packed the jars nice and tight and topped off with broth. I pressure canned for 75 minutes. The only thing that I did notice was that the "skin" on the hot dogs blistered in some spots, but that was all.

I tried this today too. I canned up about 6 pounds total. It came out to exactly 3 quarts. I added about 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce in each then filled the rest of the jar with water and shook it but before going into the canner. I added about a table spoon of crushed red pepper to one jar in the hopes of spicing things up a bit. I'll let them sit for about a month and let you all know how they turned out.

I'd like to know too! There are some in the freezer taking up space and have been in there a while. Hadn't thought about canning them.
Anyone have experience canning them? Results??

Last winter I really wanted to try canning red beans with polish sausage. (like red beans and rice, but without the rice). I chickened out. I canned the base for it, but never put in the polish sausage. I'm going to get brave one day and try it. Just have not had time recently.
I just know it would be wonderful. Canning pork products freaks me out,but I AM GOING TO GET OVER IT!!!

This post has got me thinking and when my tomatoes are ripe I am going to make tomato sauce again, but this year I am going to put some chili powder in and maybe some green peppers and onions, then slice hot dogs up in 1" chunks and can them in quart jars.

I have also been toying with the thought of maybe soaking and cooking up some dried beans and adding those to some of the jars also.

I'm going to give it a shot. I've got at least 8 packs of hot dogs in the freezer.

Figure a tomato base, like you said, Mom5, then add some soaked navy beans and cut up the dogs and throw them in.

I'm going to go with 10 pounds for 90 minutes, do you think that's enough or should I go for 15 pounds?

No I think 10 lbs for 90 minutes will be fine, its what I do all my meat at. Be sure to let us know how it turns out, I'm thinking it would be a great thing to do when they go on sale.

Whether you use 10 pounds or 15 pounds of pressure is determined by your altitude.

Also, I've never soaked beans before canning.
