On hot days biscuits and bread type treats get turned down on the trail, so I looked for something different. Let me point out I get a little frustrated when I see animal treats that are more expensive than people food.
So I got this idea about taking all beef hot dogs and boiling them up for a few minutes, then cutting them into 1/4 inch bites and tossing them directly onto the dryer for 5 hours. Dry and still soft they weigh in at 2 oz for two to three dogs. They will keep on the trail for a week & a half. If you need longer soak breifly in soy sauce before drying. They shrink a little and will fit really well in a mini glad bag for rewards.
