Weigh in: Grilled, Boiled, or Fried?

I didn't know where to stick this.. I was going to put it under beef, then just decided to stick it here. If the site people decide to stick it somewhere else, that's fine.

I just thought to get some opinions about how you like your hotdogs, sausages or brats. I have seen some places that deep-fry hotdogs. There is one place in town, that deep-fries them. It's hooked onto a bowling alley (it's really not a greasy spoon either), and they make dog burgers. They slice the hotdog down the middle, fill with cheddar cheese, and wrap thick bacon around it, securing with toothpicks. It only needs to be fried for a min or two, then they serve it on a toasted hoagie roll. **drool**. Oh, and they aren't your conventional supermarket dogs. They are the beefy fat ones. Not good for the cholesterol, but good for a splurge once in awhile.

I like my sausage (kielbasa and italian) grilled. I got this cool grill pan for my birthday last fall, and that is great for indoor grilling... or I could use my George Foreman.

Brats.... My fav way is in the crockpot. I have never made it, but my old boss makes a mean bratwurst stew. I think he adds beer to it.. don't quote me on that though.

Ok.. now I'm hungry.. lol

For Hot Dogs, it depends - at the ballgame, it's hard to beat the ones that have been simmering in the water all day, topped with just a little mustard. Best served with a cold beer

For a picnic though, gotta go with grilled, with a nice char on one side. Top with all the goodies. Again, best served with a cold beer.

For Brats, I like them boiled in beer, then grilled. Or just grilled. They're REALLY good in the smoker.

Grilled & very lightly chared in spots but if I can't grill 'em I broil 'em. I don't really like brats but I cook them for hubby & his fising buddies before a long night of fishing. I do 'em like ronjohn likes 'em, boiled in beer & then grilled.

Grilled, fried, steamed, boiled doesn't matter. No matter how you fix them they are better with.


Don't care for brats.

nothing beats a boiled hot dog from yankee stadium. nothing. there's something special about the water there.
(quick joke: how do you know it's the first day of spring in nyc? the street vendors get to change the water in their hot dog carts...)

i like skinless sabretts, or hillside farms buffalo dogs (www.hillsidefarms.biz) that have been boiled, and then the casing removed.

i will occasionally boil a dog first (to remove some fat), then toss it on the george foreman. also, the ol' dog on a stick over a campfire is a good way too.
