They Plump When You Cook Them

By Brian . Created on Jul 02, 2021
With Fourth of July a few days away, folks may be thinking what to cook on the grill. Some like the classic hot dog. I read once the term came from German immigrants to the USA eating sausage on a bun. People were reminded of dachshunds, and started calling such sandwiches hot dogs. In any case, below six of the more popular brands, take you pick, or add your own. Toppings up to you.

Just like them all

I’m vegan, but beyond makes some bomb bratwurst style sausages. Top them with spicy mustard and sour kraut, and you can have the full experience without the processed meat! (I don’t eat red meat due to an increased risk of cancer in my family, so none of the normal nonsense about why you don’t like vegans, thanks!)

Not tried them, but know there are all manner of non-meat products flooding the market as of yet. Should try some just to see what they are like. Last time I tried veggie 'meat' was some years ago, and I wasn't impressed at the time, they hadn't really got the flavor or texture down.

Beef dogs with a casing that snaps when you bite into it

Yep, though people can get a bit grossed out when they learn what the natural casing is. When grilled, it does get crispy and snap when you bite into one.

If you try googling "what are the best hot dogs" some of the ones in this list were ranked in the bottom. I think youtube has a few that rate hot dogs as well.

Oddly, Sabrett was on some of the lists I looked at before making this poll, yet few picked it. Perhaps it's because it's rather regional to New York and that area. Bar S is not a favorite of mine, but is popular due to low price, so stuck in in to see what people would say.

Yes really
