suburbanguy: 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...


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

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

BStorm: DjangoStonereaver: 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'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'.


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?

skinink: 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.


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.

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.

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.

It's a processed meat-like product.  Be thrilled they even glanced at a carcass in the making of it.

bigxnyc: 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?


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.

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.

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...

I did the bacon-wrapped, beer-battered deep-fried hot dog thing once.  Too much work, too little reward.

Add bacon to a decent all beef hot dog? Maybe.

Add bacon to the mechanically separated chicken dogs? No.

If you are going to add bacon, there's no reason to keep the dogs "all beef", so this makes sense
