Memorial Day grilling: Where to stock up on local beef, pork (and yes, hot dogs)

Nitrate-free hot dogs used to be hard to come by, but now that even the biggest hot dog brands are taking out some of the preservatives in their products, you can find them in most grocery stores.

But if you’re looking for a nitrate-free smoked hot dog made with pork and beef raised in Texas, you can get it from Augustus Ranch, a fourth-generation ranch in Yoakum that sells meat online (via Farmhouse Delivery or augustusranch.com) and at the Lakeline Farmers’ Market on Saturdays, as well as at Dai Due and Salt & Time.

Soon, you can find their meats at Mueller Farmers’ Market on Sundays, too. A four-pack of hot dogs at the market costs $10, and you can order larger quantities online.
