    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

    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. :rofl:

    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.

    "Cold" brew?

    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.

    I'm weird.

    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):rockon:

    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!
