Why do I feel like I'v wandered into a weird fetish forum and don't understand the slang?
I once asked my brother if he ever tried one of those very red looking hot dogs. I remember seeing them somewhere and I was legit interested in what they were like. He told me he only tried one and it was connected to a German shepherd. I never asked again about those hot dogs
I hate a cold bun .. my wife and her family are on the other hand savages
THAT'S RIGHT! I CALLED YOU PEOPLE SAVAGES!!!
Anyone know the FDA standards for rat feces in hot dogs?
10% I believe.
Don't worry though, that rat shit is 100% organic
As a vegetarian I must confess that at any bar-b-que I will sneak one dog with a toasted bun and eat it in secret.
Hotdogs are my only food weakness and YES the organic rat shit adds to the flavor.
You guys can eat rat poop all you want. Me, I am gonna enjoy my hot dogs with non toasted bun and a cold brew!
@vapirtoo lol you eat hot dogs and have the nerve to call yourself a vegetarian. lol you are delusional man.
This is a good and important debate. While I would insist that the best hot dogs are those swaddled in the tender embrace of an untoasted bun, I feel the opposite is true where burgers are concerned.
For me it's about the surface tension. Burgers need the reinforced rigidity toasting provides - it's like a bready case. A hot dog bun, by contrast, is more like a fancy jacket. The meat already has structural integrity, so the bread can be given over entirely to sauce-retention & grease-free handling duties.
Are you trying to start another debate?
You guys are weird.
I generally prefer a toasted bun but I think that hot dogs are best with a soft and warm steamed bun. It's all about that texture like @Burt says. I wouldn't turn down a toasted bun, it would be better than a cold hard bun.
I like a contrast of textures with my food, so I prefer a soft bun with a firmer hot dog, or a toasted bun with a more tender hamburger or almost any other sandwich.
I don't consider a hot dog a sandwich personally, at best it would fall in the half-assed open-faced category.
As far as toppings ketchup is blasphemy and mustard is mandatory. I love all types of mustard, lately I've been digging jalapeno mustard.
Mustard is a bare minimum, from there on I like chili, onions, and cheese in that order.
I like variety too. Chicago dogs are good, I love pigs in a blanket, and corn dogs are great but possibly a different category altogether.
Two dogs a year .
As a camper once told me ,"I'm a vegetarian in between meals".
Hey it's my delusion , and I have fun with it.
I prefer my buns steamed but toasted will do too. Cold hard buns suck. I like the Mexican street dog aka LA street dog. Bacon wrapped dog in a steamed bun topped with mayo, mustard, ketchup, and grilled onions. (I think that's what I'm doing for dinner)
Toasted, adds a wonderful crisp factor to the dog. If untoasted, it's just doughy.
"Toasting" a hotdog bun to perfection is a true science, this is the kind of machine you will need :
How about those split and flat-top grilled buns. I’ve always found them to be overly greasy. I definitely prefer toasted or steamed.
^^There's nothing like flipping the bun on a charcoal grill -- back side ever so lightly toasted; underneath slightly charred. Yum!
^^I love those split top ones & potato bread ones. Yum!
