Philly Soft Pretzels

Last week we went to Philly but could not land a soft pretzel. I want to surprise my friends by making some. This could be hard. Anyone try it?
I may resort to mail order, but would love your recipe if you have it. All the ones I can find are for pretty standard pretzels like Auntie Anne's--I'm more interested in the thick, bready pretzels one might find from a street vendor. Thanks!
The old editions (mine is early 1980's vintage) of The Joy of Cooking have a great soft pretzel recipe. They deleted it from the more recent editions.
Not hard, but a little messy. It involves a quick dunk in a pot full of baking soda solution, so it gets a tad messy. Results are delicious.
