DC Hot Half-Smoke

DC-3

Zagat
The half-smoke, a sausage with a hot dog's snap and a bratwurst's girth, might be named after its earliest renditions, which always featured a half-pork, half-beef mixture of meat. But ''half-smoke'' might also come from the grilling habit of splitting them down the middle. Or it could very well be that they're only lightly smoked, about half as much as a fully smoked sausage. The one thing everyone can agree on? There's no definitive half-smoke style. Toppings too can range from chili to mustard, cheese and diced onions, and all of the above. Thank goodness most half-smoke connoisseurs agree that the spicier take from DC-3 is among the best around.
