Those are the same ingredients in all of their baseline hotdogs.

Also, I have been to a bacon production facility, and it also isn't quite what you would expect.  For all of the low end bacon products, they basically take a slab of meet, inject it with salt and liquid smoke, and cook it in an oven.  There isn't any real smoking involved.

If they wanted to do it right, they would take their all beef hotdog, and add pieces of real smoked bacon.  They could probably get away with $1 per hotdog (in the package) for those.

The texas tommy is the only way to add bacon to a hot dog.
 
2013-05-16 10:25:19 AM
If you are going to add bacon, there's no reason to keep the dogs "all beef", so this makes sense
 
2013-05-16 10:27:35 AM
Add bacon to a decent all beef hot dog? Maybe.

Add bacon to the mechanically separated chicken dogs? No.

Can't be too much worse than the "Cheese Smoked Polish" I had last weekend. Flecks of cheese about the size of a flax seed.

I did the bacon-wrapped, beer-battered deep-fried hot dog thing once.  Too much work, too little reward.
 
2013-05-16 10:54:18 AM
Before I buy that dog, I want to see a cross cut. Otherwise, I'm buying a flavor injector and some Bac~Os, and doing it myself.

Incoming urge to make home made corndogs wrapped in bacon, real, thick, smoky, salty bacon.

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.
 
2013-05-16 11:33:56 AM
Uh...cheese dogs aren't made entirely of cheese, why would a bacon dog be? If it was all bacon, it wouldn't be a bacon dog. It would just be a piece of bacon in a hot dog bun...

My son wanted to try the Oscar Mayer Bacon Bologna.

It is a bit saltier than non-bacon bologna, and has some hickory smoke flavor.  There is no discernible bacon character, other than that.

I suspect these hot dogs will be the same.  Heck, they're probably made out of the same meat paste that the bologna is.

Now I see Oscar Mayer offers jalapeno bologna.  Nuh uh.  Fool me once, shame on you...

you know, i never really understood this sentiment.  people don't have sense enough to disregard their own feces.  i mean, everyone looks down after a poop.  it's human nature. it's a sign of intelligence, self examination, and self preservation.  however, i don't eat people... so maybe the sentiment is just fine.

bacon is very fatty.  perhaps too fatty to be wrapped in a casing, i mean, if it was all bacon (pork belly) it'll just be half fatty liquid in there once its heated up.  you need something lean to soak up the bacon fat.

otherwise, you could go the boudin route and add some rice.  but, there has to be somethign, you don't want your dogs to drool out a whole stream of boiling oil after each bite.  you want to soak up the fat so that it can be saved and savored.

Bacon. In a hot dog bun. You're a genius!

Wait a minute.. The label says they're made from "Turkey and chicken & pork and bacon".

Ignoring the oddball ampersand, isn't BACON made from pork? So wouldn't that be "Turkey and chicken and pork and pork"?

Unless it's turkey bacon, in which case it should be "Turkey and chicken and pork and turkey".

Though there's also the possibility that it's not really bacon at all, like the froot in Froot Loops!

I need to lie down, this is all too exhausting.

Why does it say "Made With Turkey And Chicken & Pork And Bacon?"  Two "ands" and an "&"  Odd.  Is that some sort of secret manufacturing lingo?  Does the & imply they merely waived pork and bacon near the processing machine?

Memo to Hot Dog companies:  Real hot dogs are made from beef and pork.   No chicken, no turkey, no tofu, no licorice, no other crap except for the seasonings and whatever you need to pass health regulations (a little preservatives, maybe).

If you want to also have chicken, turkey, all-beef, etc., for health nuts and non-pork eaters, that's OK.  But you don't get to completely discard the real thing.

If you're going to do a Bacon Hot Dog, you use *real* smoked bacon (hickory or applewood smoked), and you add it to a real beef & pork hot dog.

This thing is a travesty.

it may be a brand name and therefore not actually "Chicken" and "Pork" but product "Chicken & Pork". It's like whoever the genius was that trademarked "Real". They can sell Real(tm) Cheese but there's nothing literal about the word "real" it's just a trade name.

Still better than hot dogs made without bacon.
 
2013-05-16 03:03:37 PM
It's a processed meat-like product.  Be thrilled they even glanced at a carcass in the making of it.
 
2013-05-16 03:40:37 PM
Even with quality ingredients, adding bacon inside a sausage will at best result in little rubbery bits of limp pork fat, and not the crisp salty meat-candy that you want bacon to be.

Technically, not all pig flesh is pork.

Pork is usually thought to be anything that isn't ham (which as I recall is from the back legs) or bacon
(which is derived from the back or belly).  ISTR from an old episode of GOOD EATS that its usually from
the shoulder (aka The Boston Butt).

I suspect what they claim is bacon is probably either bacon drippings or, more likely, bacon that has been
fried to a crisp, ground up, and added as little more than a flavorant to their normal meat mixture.

Fark anyone who buys this.

Get yourself a goddamned hotdog and cook up a goddamned slice of crispy bacon and put them both on a goddamned bun and eat it.

You're welcome, it's delicious you lazy fark.

i've heard the belly called 'pork belly'.  pork just means it's pig .  from Latin  porcus .  however, the root for pork hits many languages and goes back farther than latin.  just means pig, the animal

Bacon scraps must have gone down to a price that's competitive with tongues, lips, and assholes.

I'd question that assertion.. pork is the general descriptive for the fresh meat from a pig, not any specific part. It's when that meat is processed that it gets descriptive names like bacon or ham.

There may be specific names for individual cuts or parts, and some of the more conceited food elitists may try to make up stories to disguise the reality that they're eating pig meat, but it's all still 'pork'.

Have you ever been to a farm? Pretty much any animal coexists with its own shiat. Cows step in it. Pigs roll in it. Chickens peck food out of it. The larger the operation, the more pronounced the issue is.

Vegetables aren't much better, they fertilize the fields around here with chicken and pig shiat. Reeks for a week any time they plant. Don't even get me started on fish fertilizer.

Put me down as another one who always hated that line. Most pigs are packed together into tiny pens at factory farms. Unless they learn to levitate they don't really have a choice other than to lie in their own filth.

/looks it up

That's interesting, I've been occasionally doing that for years with the only difference being putting the cheese on the bun instead of in the hot dogs.

Store brand dogs/bacon is probably cheaper than name brand ready made bacon hot dogs

I defer to your superior knowledge and grasp of food preparation.  I had completely missed the distinction of
smoking/curing vs the raw meat.

Not all pork is bacon or ham, but all bacon or ham started out as plain old pork.

Anyone hungry for ribs all of a sudden?

When foodies start getting smug over bacon and hot dogs, its time to put this played out "fad" to rest.
