Default Re: Hot Dogs: Nathan's or Hebrew National

Let's face it, the preference for hot dogs, like anything else, is just personal taste. I think some prefer Nathan's simply because they cost $5 or more per pack. They do have a different flavor; they all do. The keys to a good dog are the surroundings, as they were not made to be eaten singly.

For me, the bun is key. It should not be tasteless, like many, nor too thick, as to mask the flavor of all else. It should serve as a flavorful boat to carry the toppings of choice. It should be soft, perhaps slightly warmed or steamed.

After that, it's just personal taste. On any given day, I make them differently. The dogs, whatever brand, always seem to be better if not boiled in water, which leeches flavor, but perhaps slowly simmered in a good chili, so that the flavor of such is absorbed into the dog; this is especially if you are serving it with chili. Otherwise, I like finely diced sweet onion (catsup and/or mustard is your choice). Quite often, I like to top mine with a creamy, homemade coleslaw, which to my mind, is sheer heaven.

Don't eat loads of them per week, or you may not live to be eighty.

The very cheap "red ones" that you can buy for very little and get about 24 in the bag that they come in.


Just kidding. I really don't have a preference either way as long as the stuff that I put on it makes it taste better.

For me, I'd pass up a hotdog for a bratwurst any day. But if that's not an option, Ballpark will do. Hebrews are good but I don't think that much better than the others.

I think the better question is what do you put on it to mask the taste of the hotdog? Anything more than mustard means the thing tastes like s###. A Chicago dog is disgusting mess of garbage. Even loading the thing down with chili seems pointless. If you're going to cover the hotdog with a ladle of chili and mustard and onions, does it really matter what the brand of hotdog is?
Boars Head hot dogs are all whole muscle meat no tails, lips, butt holes. No offals

What kind of hot dogs did Thompsons sell 40-50 years ago. They were great.

TO HELL WITH HOT DOGS !
Make this bad boy right here with Boar's Head Kielbasa and you'll forget
there's such a thing as a Hot Dog.



For the sake of the thread topic, if I'm making hot dogs, it doesn't really
matter. As long as it's Beef Franks I'll eat whatever is cheapest at the time.
Nathan's and Hebrew National are good hot dogs, but it's not that I'm
partial to one of them, or prefer them over Carolina Pride, Valleydale, Oscar
Meyer, Ball Park etc....

I LOVE sausage dogs. I've eaten them made several different ways, and I like
em all. How I make em basically depends on mood at the time I want one.
I usually top them with sauted Onions, Bell Peppers, Mushrooms and Black
Olives. Top that with a little Spicy Brown or Dijon Mustard and then splash it
with Malt Vinegar. I'll either grill the Sausage, deep fry it, or boil it in Beer and
Onions and then seer it before eating. I have made it and topped it with
Sour Kraut. The best are the home made kinds, but even though I haven't
had one in a while, Fanny Farkle's in Gatlingburg have the best of any I've
tasted outside making them myself. I haven't been to Gatlingburg in about
5 years now and I've heard a lot has changed up there since then. I'll have
to get up that way soon and see what's new and If Fanny Farkle's is still
there, and if they still make Sausage Dogs.
