What's your favourite hot dog?

Tattrat's post on the 7/11 hot dog got me curious. Somehow, this country split in a variety of directions when it comes to what we put on them to how we cook them. I have tried to have a 'city special' whenever I travel so I get the true flavour. So far I've had San Fran, Chicago, Boston, NYC, and a Lucky Dog down in the quarter.

My preference is a Sabrette, boiled, and served with brown mustard and sauerkraut. If I can actually get one from a cart in the city, it's heaven. Second would be a grilled Deitz & Watson with brown mustard, lettuce, tomato and a pickle. Nathan's from Coney Island is in a class all it's own.

I've had veggie dogs, turkey dogs, chicken dogs and 'meat' dogs, in addition to the all beef dog.

What about you?

Uhh...7/11 cheeseburger big bite, with chili, cheese, salsa, and onions. From any city with a 7/11.

I guess I've got an uncultured palate though.

I agree with Vera, one off the cart with brown mustard and sauerkraut but here in NC, that is impossible to find. (for me anyway) (There are things I do miss about NY)
I buy Sabrett or Nathan's and either boil or grill.

I really don't like hot dogs...

but I'll eat one if it's cooked over a nice camp fire. Dill pickles and onions and lots of ketchup.

I love that! We have an outdoor fireplace in the yard. I've been known to pass out sticks, hot dogs and buns, and leave everyone to their own devices.

I envy you people in NYC. My husband and I spent a short time there and we got a hot dog from a street vendor. It was the best hot dog we ever ate. We went back for another one. So sorry we don't have that practice on the West Coast.

I remember the hot dogs in Tijuana being very good, but that was after many Dos Equis and tequila. The dogs were wrapped in bacon and had who knows what on them.
