hebrew national are very good. no ifs, ands, or butts.

since kosher dogs cannot be made from meat including the sciatic nerve, herbrew national invented an add campaign to show that "no butts", or rear half of the cow, were used in their dogs.
i've heard that some kosher butchers remove the nerve, thus making butt portions kosher. but it's an uncommon practice in the u.s..

that being said, thumanns, boars head, and skinless sabretts are also good.



i will eat a griddled or grilled dog if forced, but i prefer boiled. grilling/griddling concentrates the saltiness too much, imo.

my all time favourite was from my high school girlfriend's dad's kosher butchery, abeles and heymann kosher provisions: Abeles & Heymann

i haven't had one in years, so i don't know if they're still the same.

my second faves are the hot smoky bison dogs from here: Hendricks Farms and Dairy - HF&D Philosophies

they're best when boiled, then the skin peeled off.

I'm not a big hot dog guy, but if I buy them at the grocery store, I get Vienna Beef or Hebrew National. I've eaten Nathan's at Coney Island and loved them, but I can't get any here in Bradley, Illinois.

May be off subject but I had a bit of a treat today while out shopping I saw the Oskar
Meyer Weiner Mobile
Hey, guess what? I saw the Oscar Meyer Weiner car here in Bucerias the other day at our big new Mega supermarket. Hot dogs are very popular here, and the most popular brand is called "Fud" - really. But they chop them up, fry them with chiles and onions and eat them in a tortilla! Yum.

doesn't matter what the brand. First you NEED to read the ingredient list!!!!!

most hot dogs contain lots of garbage.

Boar's Head and Nathan's are my 2 favorites. I cook them in one of these. It toasts the buns at the same time. The only problem is, you can only cook 2 at a time, but other than that, I love the flavor.

Since posting this, I tried the Ballpark Angus hot dogs and they are my new favorites.

Wow, I had forgotten about a childhood favorite:
Sliced fried hot dog sandwiches!

Nathan's originally (according to legend) had a hard time selling dogs for 5 cents at Coney Island... people thought they were too cheap to be safe.
So Nathan dressed everyone in white, hired doctors to eat the dogs in their lab coats outside the stand, and called them "Sanitary"....
and the rest is history!

How about a good old Gwaltney? ;)

Boar's Head natural casing (not the skinless) are pretty good. Fried, barbequed or simmered. A lot of frankfurter / kielbasa type sausages can be a bit salty and cooking in water (or beer?) can reduced the saltiness.

Try Shickhaus. They aren't salty at all.
