Hebrew National here, no butts about it. Nathans skinless are a second choice.

There's a couple of famous hot dog joints around Northern NJ that have their own proprietary dogs (Rutt's Hut, and The Hot Grill) that you can buy their dogs, but since we've moved farther north I don't often get the chance to get there.

Someone once suggested Best Brand hot dogs to me, so I tried them. They were terrible!

We loved Wimmers natural casing wieners. Haven't had them for a couple years, I'll have to remedy that.

When I order hot dogs from Der Weinersnitzel, I prefer the ones made from pork, turkey and chicken over the spicier all beef ones. I would buy Oscar Meyer regular bun length hot dogs if they weren't fatter in circumference than Nathans. "Ballpark dogs plump when you cook them". They add water to make them do that. Oscar Meyer has been advertising that they no longer add nitrites and nitrates to their deli meats. I'm not sure if that applies to their hot dogs.

I was also wondering if anyone has frozen Nathans hot dogs (or hot dogs in general) and let them thaw slowly in the fridge (bought on sale). Does the texture or taste suffer any if used within a month or so? I couldn't get a definitive answer Googling it.
I find it a bit amusing that this is posted under "Beef", since the traditional hot dog is not a beef product. I rarely buy beef hot dogs - prefer pork, and don't mind some poultry mixed in to help keep the cost down.

For brand, I generally buy Bar S or Ball Park brand for actual hot dog wieners. I usually buy in a pack of 16 or 20 and freeze in ZipLoc bags of typically 3 or 4 in each.

I also like Johnsonville's smoked brats, either the Jalapeņo cheddar or the beer brats... precooked like a hot dog is, but with a lot more flavor than a regular dog.

Same We also enjoy Ball Park hot dogs, although I'm avoiding eating them right now. Had a partial intestinal blockage last spring and hot dogs don't break down - those buggers are thoroughly emulsified.

Traditional American dogs are a mix of beef and pork, and then there's all beef, and of course the poultry additions.

European ones are generally pork, but they're not the same thing we call hot dogs.

I'm not really picky about HD's. I usually stick with Hebrew Nationals or club warehouse brands (Costco or Sam's), price being the determining factor.
