Minnesota man sells 7-pound hot dogs in time for July 4th
Jason Stetz, the butcher at and owner of Heart O’Lakes Quality Meats in Pelican Bay, Minnesota, is dishing out his newest meat invention as fast as he can make them: 7-pound hot dogs.
KRTV’s Kiersten Cooley reports that Stetz invented his version of the beefy giants after watching a “Modern Marvels” episode about hot dogs with his kids. They bet him that he couldn’t make one and, after a few weeks, Pelican Bay history was born.
Stetz sells the 7-pound behemoths either whole or sliced and frozen, and said he can hardly keep them in stock. “They always say it’s never a sale unless you have a return customer,” Stetz added, “and we’re seeing a lot of return customers!”
