Man I just got up and looked at your reply Pass and gosh you made me laugh. Its the same here in the Atlanta area. I just asked for good Italian bread and got very little response too. But your Taylor pork roll made my mouth water and I told my gf we need to take a trip to Jersey and just eat!!! Whats your opinion on using a Muffaletta bread instead of a pizza bread for the Italian Hot Dogs??

HDL and others, what is your opinion of making the Italian Hot Dogs and serving them on a sub roll, piece of Italian bread, etc as opposed to the traditional Pizza Bread???
Just wondering, thanks

Thank you HDL. That is exactly what I was thinking of having done too. Any ideas on the size of the deep fryers? Width, depth, ? My memory seems to say they are pretty wide, but honestly cant remember too well. Guess old age setting in on my mind. lol I have maybe located a few bread sources. Still checking it all out. Will let you know how I make out.
Thanks again,

I am looking for a good Italian bread bakery in the Atlanta area. One that bakes in authentic brick or pizza ovens would be extra special. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I look forward for any help HDL. I did try to call Ricci D's but the number was disconnected and no other information :((. Its a shame cause I bet he would love to sell some of his kitchen equipment. I will keep checking the board here.
Thanks again,

Thanks again for all the info HDL. I grew up in Union. I lived on Colonial Ave for all of my youth. As a side note I was best of friends with the Grandson of the owners of the Galloping Hill Inn. They also made great dogs and understand they still do.
I currently live in GA outside of Atlanta and think the population here would just llove the Italian Hot Dogs done the old fashioned way. Thats kinda why I wanted the slanted stainless steel pan deep fryer. I remembered watching the guys make them and putting the potatoes and onions on the side of the pan. It was like watching one of those Japanese chefs cooking at your table. Its part theater which is fun and gives it charasima. Now add a great tasting dog and you really have an experience. I would greatly appreciated if you could give me a lead to find those pans or deep fryers with them, I was also wondering if you had a number to contact the owner of Ricci D's? He might be willing to sell his now that he is out of business? Just a thought. Anyone that can help in my information search is guarenteed free dogs when passing thry Georgia for life!! :)) Thanks one and all. This is a great board with people that know whats good to eat!!

WOW HDL, thanks so much for such a great response. I use to eat as a kid at the Jimmy Buffs Newark location across from the Newark Resevoir. Then later I lived in Union and went to the Kenilworth location. They had opened it there first. Sounds like they sold it later to Charlies? I am thinking about trying to open a place here but it wont be easy to get the bread or the deep fryer. Thanks again

I grew up eating Jimmy Buffs and was wondering if they are still made the same way. Also I remember a very special deep fryer they used. I have never seen one like it anywhere in my travels. Does anyone know who the supplier of that deep fryer might be or where one could be purchased ? Is it totally custom or can they be bought as I remember them?
Ahhhhhhh the grease!! lol
