One of the local farms here sells their own 100% beef hot dogs.  I don't know if they are ass and lips or not, but the only additives are spices and lactic acid culture starter to prevent spoilage.  I am not certain if the amount in the starter is enough to cause dairy or sugar issues, although I suspect all of the sugar is consumed by the bacteria.

I know the gal I buy my grass fed beef does, but I thought that Oscar Meyer had a all natural, no chemical "dog".   Don't quote me, but that does ring a faint bell for some reason.  David, can you confirm or deny? ( I know it was all beef so it had a kosher seal on it as well.)

Smart aleck, kinda thought you would remember since you have kids in the house! 
Kids and hot dogs go together, ya know.  (I already knew it was Kosher!) Far be it for -me- to bring up Jewish. Oy!

they usually contain potato starch, and paprika is usually in "spices", so if you're looking to avoid nightshades as parts of your paleo diet, hot dogs aren't it.

You may be able to find 100% pork sausages or ask for them to be made on farms. However, when I ordered some they were heavily salted, so best to try them first before making them a staple part of your diet.

I'd go to the local butcher and buy some of their sausages. You'll have better luck.

That said, if it's 100% beef (check the ingredients) like Vienna Beef hotdogs, you might be fine. Even if it's "lips and asses", that's still paleo-ish

I'd be less worried about where the meat came from than about the lactic acid starter culture.  It's still a preservative, and not 100% strict paleo.  Not nearly as bad as hot dogs with sugar and starch in them, though.

I thought about this post when I happened upon some Bison Hotdogs by Blackwig Quality Meats. Says:

Made with no nitrites or nitrates. No hormones or antibiotics. A summer favorite! Always the lowest prices anywhere! Ingredients: Bison meat water, seasoning mix (sea salt, natural spices (pepper, coriander, nutmeg, mace, mustard, cardamon), evaporated cane juice, dehydrated onion and garlic, paprika, beet powder, corn starch.)

Ooops... what's up with the corn starch?  Not sure about that, but everything else sounds good.

Well, and the "evaporated cane juice" is sugar.
