This is in my opinion, the best classic dog; put it on a stick and cook it in a campfire. Folloing that, boil it till it's plump and put it in a bun. Cook whole in home-made backed beans (can you say yum!), and that all time school hot-lunch favorite (at least when I was a kid) wrap in raw bread dough, let the dough rise, bake until golden, and call them pigs-in-the-blanket. Serve with ketchup and mustard, both in squirt bottles of course.

These are just a few of my favorite hot dog meals. I also love them steamed, microwaved, pan fried in a lightly oiled pan, etc.

What's your favorite? It could be with sour kraut, or sliced and mixed in with smashed spuds, whatever.

I like then on the grill with a grilled bun. Mustard is a must, but it cannot be any of that neon yellow stuff. It has to be a good brown mustard. Relish is welcome as well as some sour krout.

The other way I like my dogs are sliced up in split pea soup. That is some serious comfort food for me :)

Oh, it's HOTdogs, not Fido

Whew! At first glance, I thought we were talking "kaigoki" here. That is to say, that famous Korean dish that animal lovers everywhere tend to protest a LOT.

Will put all sorts of things on hotdogs. Love Chicago dogs.

But when we are on a kimchee binge, nothing goes better than kimchee on a roll with a dog.

favorite dog

:D My favorite brand is a toss up between Kowalski and Koegel. Both give you that great natural skin snap when you bite into them. Now favorite sausage... There is a tiny, and I mean tiny neighborhood grocery store in Hastings, Michigan called Tom's market. There they make their own garlic bologna and weiners. It's about 30 miles away from my house and nowhere near any place else that I ever have to go but every once in a while when we are feeling especially flush(like around income tax time) I run down there and pick up a couple of pounds. Truly yummy.

Depends on what type of dog I'm looking for. If its a skinless wiener and I'm in San Diego, then Wrath Blackhawk is the only way to go. If I'm in Sault Ste. Marie, MI, then Volworths is my dog of choice. For natural casing dogs, There's a little meat market attached to a Mom & Pop store called Neville's Superette. They have a great hot dog. Then there's this butcher store front in Pickford Mi that has a very unique natural skin hot dog that is just yummy, and not like any other hot dog I've ever had.

As for sausage brands, it purely depends on what I'm in the mood for. I love Volworth's ring bologna, and many different fresh sausage brands. I prefer to make my own beakfast sausage so that I can reduce the fat and taylor the flavor.

By the way, thanks for bringing this up. There is a tremendous difference in different hot dog and sausage brands.

I like Koegles Vienna hot dogs in the natural casings. Many of the coney shops use them. I don't like skinless hot dogs. I love Sweet Italian Sausage.
