If I'm not at home, I usually buy Old Wisconsin brand when I can find them. Otherwise Nathan's hot dogs are pretty passable, too.
I make a dish that uses stewed tomatoes, onions, garlic and hot sauce. You split (without cutting them in half) the hotdogs length wise, brown on both sides in a little oil and set aside. You then cook the onions and garlic in the same pan until softened, add the tomatoes, hot sauce, hotdogs and simmer for about 10 minutes. I think it is pretty good.

I have a new favorite. I bought a pack on sale, and loved them. They are big, and they just taste really good.

We tried a new to us brand tonight. Some sort of Angus beef hot dogs. It's a local, artisanal brand - Ça va barder! They were very tasty.

Not really. It is more expensive than the cheap dogs, but the same price as the better brands, like Nathan's or Hebrew National.

Locally, we prefer Deutschmacher hot dogs, one of the many brands under the Kayem beach umbrella. Natural casing, please. However, our favorite dogs are not a brand name. When we're back home, we always make sure that one of the meals I fix involves the hand-made smoked hot dogs from our favorite Amish country butcher, Winesburg Meats. I remember going down there with my Dad and Mom once a year. Dad found out about it from another bread delivery driver, one who worked for Nickles Bakery. The butcher was only 12 miles from the bakery - not far when you consider the bakery was already 55 miles from our home!

I make my own hotdogs. I use sheep casing. Triple grind them. If I do not make my own, there is a local brand here in the SF Bay Area called Evergood. Really good hot dogs and their hot link sausages are really good.

I've seen those. They are a Kroger brand. I have not tried them... yet.
