Aside from OM, I've never seen or heard of these brands either.
Apparently hot dog brands aren't as widespread as Spam

I've only heard of Hebrew National and Oscar Meyer. No one has heard of Nathans? They sponsor the yearly hot dog eating contest.

No, I've never heard of Nathan's. Pretty much the only ones available here are Oscar Meyer, BallPark, Hebrew National and local store brands.

I can get OM, Ball Park, Hebrew National, Nathans and a couple of other mainstream brands but have not been happy. Maybe I need to cook them a different way, I usually boil them. I'm looking forward to try the Angus Beef Dogs. Living in the middle of nowhere I have no access to house made dogs. I'm willing to do mail order also Knackwurst have been an issue with me for a few years. Maybe I just don't like sausage anymore that would be really sad. I think my trip to Germany 10 years ago really changed my tastes toward sausage.

I like charcoal and lighter fluid essence on my dogs. In fact, I have a bag of Match Light just for hot dogs. lol

See, these are the secrets good cooks hold back from us lowly newbies. Who'd have ever suspected lighter fluid essence?? I just put a series of diagonal cuts along each hot dog and them put them under the broiler. (Here's a warning, though, that should be on the hot dog package IMO. If you forget about them under the broiler, hot dogs are flammable.)

Ewww, no, don't boil them. They need some caramelization to be good. I cook them either in the grill pan, the toaster oven, or on the grill. Can't stand boiled hot dogs.
