It’s Red & a Local Favorite

    You might not be familiar with one of our local favorite eats – it’s a red hot dog and made right here in Johnston County. The county has two hot dog producers in Smithfield – Carolina Packers makes the Brightleaf Hot Dog and Steven’s Sausage Company makes the Steven’s Red Hot Dog. 

    Many locals even have their favorite, favorite one! This debate is almost as serious as the one we have about barbecue.

    Give it a try and let us know which one is your favorite!
