Ball Park is what I usually get. I don't think I have ever tried anything else except for Oscar Meyer and was dissapointed. I want to try HN, but just have not had the wild hair to do so.

Boiled weenies... yuck! I usually split mine and fry them in a saute pan. I like them nice and charred!

I like them on the grill best, but usually we do them on the little George Foreman. Dh could eat them everyday, but I'm not that crazy about them. I don't like them boiled at all. We use bun length Ball Park, OM, or Nathan's - whichever is on sale. We have either cole slaw or sauerkraut on them.

I'm a Sabrette's girl...followed closely by Nathan's and Thumanns.

Did you know that prior to the invention of the hot dog bun, people ate the sausages wearing white cotton gloves supplied by the vendor? You would order your sausage, and he'd hand you a glove to wear to protect your hand. The problem was, many people walked off with the glove, in addition to the laundering process each evening. It was a frankfurter maker's wife who suggested a type of bread that wouldn't overpower the meat, yet be sturdy enough to hold the sausage...

I happen to be heading to Edinboro today

Grilling is #1, but I like them boiled once in a while for a changeup. And even uncooked on a fresh bun with mustard. Better than baloney!
When I was a kid I used to spear one on a fork and cook it over the gas burner on the stove Don't know if mom knew about that....

My favourite are the swedish ones they do in Ikea.

They only thing that keeps me going all the way round the shop is the thought of their hot dogs at the end!

Godweed, see if you can get Koegel's ... they're made in Michigan and I can't find them outside of MI. They are FANTASTIC.

DH likes the new Ball Park Angus ... locally I like Chermake Stadium (or a good local skinned wiener GRILLED over the skinless variety). Hebrew National (beef) are very good. Some stores are starting to carry Nathan's, but they're $5. Outside of a craving (or a good Chicago hot dog stand) the whole point of a hot dog is that it's fast and relatively cheap. I can buy a whole pork tenderloin for $5! :)

Speaking of boiling ... way back when in a former life (pre-teen in Jackson, MI) there was a chain called LUMS across the street and they cooked the dogs in beer. I don't think they were boiled, I think just placed in the steam table and warmed in beer rather than water. Then you could order to your liking or with chili and/or cheese and they had this steamer apparatus, much like Orange Julius uses now which melted the cheese and softened the bun. Wow, maybe it's just the memory, but I can almost taste a chili cheese dog with mustard and onion right now.
