Detail from 'The Deli'
Half-smokes. Or, as they are more formally know,
half-smoked sausages. According to my Brother-in-Law, proprieter Lee Russell:
"Sohalf smokes. Yes, I know there are those who equate
half smokes with gastronomical orgasm. They are quite
goodespecially if they are of high quality and are
very fresh. The ones with which I was most familiar are the
ones we sold in the storethey were made by Esskay in
Baltimore. They truly were outstandingwe sold the hell
out of them. The primary ingredient is pork, followed by
beef, at least in that brand (the proper name for half
smokes is "half-smoked sausages"). I believe half smokes are
primarily a regional delicacy of the south and mid-Atlantic,
basically unknown in the north and west."
