This review of D’artagnan’s gourmet buffalo franks goes along with yesterday’s review of their duck dogs. The bison used were raised in Canada on a forage diet, with no antibiotics or growth hormones. The buffalo dogs had a strong smoked flavor, and definitely tasted more like a beef hot dog than any other typical type of frank. When bit, the dogs came apart in big chunks, which I liked. One of my friends agreed with me that the buffalo dogs were much better with condiments and a beer; on their own the flavor was a bit raw. My other friend, who doesn’t like condiments, thought the buffalo dogs tasted like old socks.
Bottom line: while the flavor is not as refined, if you love a heavy, pungent stick of meat that you can load up with a ton of condiments, this could be your dream wiener.
