Posted in response to a recipe request. Several years ago, my husband used to make these a lot. He must have gotten his fill, though. He only pulls out the recipe for his "manly" fishing trips, now. :) Cook time does not include overnight refrigeration.

WOW! These are real man food! I cater for a small group of men once a month for a poker game. I just make what they want and drop it off...there is always a nice check waiting for me. Anyway, I made these and oh my gosh...if they weren't gone in a flash! To improve: More vinegar!!! More spices!! And finally use a variety for meats! I used hot dogs, ring bologna, and pencil smoked sausage. I also used more than one kind of peper too. Hatch Peppers, Banana Pepper, and a piece of Sweet bell pepper. Wow! Make these then make it again better!! This is a good base to start and then go where you want.

Great recipe. I added a little extra garlic and hot pepper to suit my personal tastes. I agree with other reviewers, it could use a little more vinegar so next time I'll add an extra cup of vinegar. Great recipe. Thanks for posting!

I tried these a year ago with the hunting camp fellows and they just could not get enough of them. I will be making them again this year . The only thing I would do different is a little more vinegar and garlic. this recipe is a big hit at camp or at home with the kids.
