Tell me about hotdogs.

Tell me about hotdogs.

I've discovered after 25+ years of thinking I didn't like them, that I do indeed actually think they're amazing. I've been trying little variations but I'm not American and don't have a frame of reference for acceptable, tried & tested ways of customising a dog.

Gonna have some for dinner later so tell me what your favourite hotdog is, toppings, different methods of preparation, sides, etc. Gimme some ideas beyond mustard and ketchup

    In US where I live we do chili, coleslaw (chopped up pretty fine and mayo based), and diced onions. You can also do yellow mustard. I’d look up Carolina Dog so you have a reference, I think our mustard and slaw is probably different.

    It’s a good hotdog though! Other option is chili cheese dog, they’re great too

      I tried a chili dog last week, it tasted great but it was super messy and also extremely filling, i felt bad bc i made two and had to throw the other one out bc i couldn't finish it (I assumed chilli soaking into bread and going cold doesn't taste good as leftovers).

      We get all different kinds of mustard, I usually go for French's which I think is what most americans would have too. Gotta say though, I tried one with English mustard, super spicy it really tasted great, not sure how traditional that would be though.

        How fricking gay are you that you can't eat more than 1 hot dog just becuase a spoonful of meat is on it? Jesus Christ, you probably obsessively eat veg too.

    chicago style is the GOAT but you probably can't get the authentic ingredients where you are cause i'm american and i can't either (without ordering online)
    but i make knockoff chicago dogs at home and they're still great

      This is typical American 'style'.
      Throw as much on it as you can and call it the best!

      There is much to be said for keeping things simple.

    I like a spicy 'dawg, like a kabanos, with hot sauerkraut, coarse grain mustard and danish ketchup

      this sounds interesting. what makes danish ketchup different exactly? might try doing a janky version of this: I have coarse mustard and I might dice up some pickled onions really fine, not sure how i'd make it spicy though, our selection here is very plain.

    My favorite hot dog is the Cum Dumpster
    It's basically just a hot dog in a bun with mayonnaise on it
    I'm not gay. I just like mayo on my hot dogs because I like mayo on my bologna sandwiches, and hot dogs are basically the same thing

    Oof, hot dogs are super varied and there are tons of regional variants. There is a whole supermarket wall dedicated to hot dogs and sausages. For contents, they will be pork, chicken, or beef, either all or some combination thereof. Bottom barrel hot dogs are usually pork and chicken blended together. Ball parks are usually all beef. Then there are plenty of pork varieties. Some even have cheese added in the blend. I used to get sugardales that were quarter pound hot dogs, super tasty, but recently I've swapped to all pork dogs. They are pretty good.

    Then you have white bread rolls, brioche rolls, potato rolls, whole grain, plus a few other specialty rolls (like the seeded one for Chicago). Slice can be either side or top; top down is a bit meh for stacking ingredients but it is less likely to be fricked up.

    Toppings vary from major sauces to relish, diced onions, chili, tomato (sliced or diced), pickled onions, shredded cheese, queso, and so on.

    Prep methods are boiling, steaming, grilling, smoking, or frying. Boiling will cause them to plump and split when overdone. Grilling will add grill char marks and dry the casing out, potentially adding smoke flavor if over charcoal/wood. Steaming will plump them up as well, and if you want the "ballpark" dog experience, I recommend steaming them for 5min and the buns for about 30-45sec near the end to get that packet steamed effect. Smoking adds tons of real smoke flavor and replaces the fake imitation smoke flavor use in a lot of commercial hot dogs.
