Just in time for Christmas, they’re selling reindeer hot dogs in suburban Chicago.

With grilled onions and mustard, it will cost you eight dollars at Fred Markoff’s hot dog stand in Glenview.

The reindeer dogs are made in Alaska and actually contain a bit of beef and pork because reindeer meat is so lean and dry.

Markoff says he first tasted the reindeer hot dogs on a visit to Alaska a few years ago and decided to offer them as a December special at his stand.

His other specialties include smoked alligator-and-pork sausages and buffalo bratwursts.
