Jim Pittenger doesn’t exactly look the part of a gourmet chef: A former repo man who sports a goatee, a long gray ponytail and silver studs and hoops in his earlobes, “Biker Jim” would seem more at home on the back of a hog than behind a flat-top griddle. But the man is nothing short of a hot dog master, slinging wildly creative gourmet sausages that have earned him statewide adulation (and a coveted appearance on Tony Bourdain’s “No Reservations”). Crafted, variously, from reindeer, wild boar, elk and rattlesnake, Jim’s links are available in a bevy of out-there but so-delicious styles. Try the Desert dog, topped with spicy harissa-roasted cactus, fragrant Malaysian curry jam and cilantro, or the El Diablo, lavished with bright tomatillo salsa, sriracha lime mayo and crispy smoked bacon bits.
