Huh, It Looks Like Peapod Is Now Selling Hot Doug's Sausages

The late, great Hot Doug's has been closed for over four years, but the encased-meats emporium hasn't let a little detail like not existing stop it from staying in the spotlight. Just this month, for instance, Chicago hosted the premiere of Hot Doug's: The Movie; and former owner Doug Sohn continues to serve up sausages at Wrigley Field. Now, it looks like you can even get Hot Doug's sausages delivered to your door. What a time to be alive!

Peapod is now selling Hot Doug's-brand sausages, sourced from the same butcher that supplied the old restaurant, Paulina Meat Market. They're pre-packaged (though fully cooked), so It's not quote like walking into the old Avondale destination, but short of that Wrigley concession stand, it's the closest you'll get. The food delivery service has had its four Hot Doug's sausage options—smoked Hungarian sausage, jalapeno jack brat, curry brat and sweet Chinese sausage—available for about a month now, Tribune food writer Luisa Chu reports. Each comes in a pack of four and is currently priced at $6.99 per package. Foie gras is not included, if you're trying to go that old route.

Now If they'd just list some duck-fat fries, we'd be set.
