There are some places on the full list of 35 west of the Mississippi River (e.g. L.A., Houston, Tuscon, Iowa).

I thought it seemed regional at first, too, then clicked the full 35.

Even so the majority are moreeast than west.

I've had two on the list.  The Cape Neddick dog is pretty tasty, but Rutt's Hut is overrated - the relish ain't all that.

I've never understood the fascination with the hot dog.  As a sausage, the frankfurter is pretty underwhelming.  Anything that just needs ketchup to make it palatable isn't very good food.

Ketchup should never be used on any food by anyone over the age of 12, but he's right about hot dogs.  They are the least among sausages.

I can't argue with that.  Even the best hot dog can't compete with bratwurst.

That depends on the bratwurst.  A good house made frank from a specialty butcher shop can hold it's own with other good sausages.

Rutt's Hutt is really good.

/the urban legend is that route 21 in NJ had it's route adjusted because it was cheaper then the required eminent domain cost for Rutt's Hutt... It's probably bullshiat but made a good story.

I love hot dogs, don't get me wrong, but this may actually be dumber than the regional "pizza wars."

You're basically arguing over tubes of cat food, for f*ck's sake.

Play with me here... as someone who just doesn't really like the taste of mustard (I can do Honey mustard's)... what would you suggest.... just relish and onions?  Use honey mustard?   I'm not allowed to eat hot dogs?  I shouldn't listen to hot dog snobs?   Give me my road here.

I mean, outside of a Chili or coney dog, which then doesn't need anything else but the chili or coney sauce anyway.

No, you can use ketchup, by all means.  I'll just think less of you as a person.

On another note, since this is a hot dog thread.... I grilled hot dogs for the first time spiral cut this weekend.... I have to say, that is the way to go if you are grilling hot dogs, definitely a good idea.

Well, more accurately, they're arguing over the condiments put on tubes of cat food.

Spiral cutting is overrated, and way more work than you need to go through. Just a simple slice lengthwise will allow the dog to expand, and get some more surface area. Also, try smoking them instead of grilling. If you go that route, sprinkle a little bit of rib rub on them before smoking. You can also wrap them in bacon.

Missing is Colombian hotdogs... from pretty much any Colombian place. Comes with quail egg, potato chips, pinapple sauce and a bunch of other things.

It is kind of a minor foodie thing that went around last year....

I do a bit in the Quirky.com community, and they have a "utensil" they have in "plans" that would make it easier to do, but, no hard plans to create it yet....  http://www.quirky.com/products/425-Cyclone-spiral-sausage-slicer

Although, it isn't too hard to just do the wooden skewer method.... just use a sharp knife, and try to get the skewer down the middle as much as possible, which is a bit difficult, but, not too hard.   It was easier with a "thicker" hot dog (I generally buy Hebrew Natl. dogs, and they have a "jumbo" dog now, 4 to a pack, vs. their normal size 7 to a pack).

Always happy to see Katz's get some love, but I can't go in there and not get a pastrami or corned beef sandwich. A hot dog on top of that is a bit much.

It's not listed, but I remember really enjoying Frank in Austin, TX when I was down there.

No one would have bitten that.  A better troll would have been to include in your post how good ketchup is on hot dogs.  That'd get 'em biting.

I just don't get these contests.  I'm sorry, but I just can't do much of anything on a hot dog other than ketchup, mustard and/or occasionally sweet relish.  And sauerkraut goes on a brat, period.

The Britney Spear's Speculum hot dog:

Nathans hotdog boiled or grilled, cut in half longitudinally.

Rip the bun apart at the seam leaving two halfs

Lay both bun halves out and put on the bun half, in order:
-Miracle whip schmear
-Super thinly sliced sweet pickles, relish can be substituted
-a bed of sauerkraut
-The Longitudinally cut hotdog half
-Chili of your choice
-Swiss cheese.

Eat with fork and knife.

I'd put ketchup on a frickin brontosaurus burger if one were offered to me.

BUT - not HFCS laced ketchup. I'm not some kind of freak you know.

As I post, I am sitting at Rawley's Drive Thru in Fairfield, CT (No. 7 on the list) waiting for my two hot dogs and my chili cheese fries.
