“This is not just another hot dog. A lot of investment has gone into creating a truly unique product. The new Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog was inspired by the flavours of premium, kosher beef hot dogs, and unlike other products that use liquid smoke for flavour, our hot dogs are smoked in a real smokehouse,” said Dan Curtin, president of Greenleaf Foods.
