Re: vote for your favorite hot dog………

Anyone from Michigan knows that there is no hot dog like a KOEGELS, natural casing/skinless. Koegels gets my vote even though it was not listed.

As far as roasting over a fire, Ball Park are the best. At home cooking on the stove however, we prefer Nathan’s or Hebrew National, or any Vienna type. Ball Park is a camping dog.

As for the best hotdogs, I must say Ball Park Angus Beef hotdogs are the best. From the very first time I ate them, I havent had another dog since.

Not sure if this one qualifies either, but Evergood Louisiana hot links are scrumptious!

Smith’s hot dog from Erie, PA. You haven’t had a great hot dog until you have had a regular casing Smith’s.

You didnt mention Smiths Hot Dogs. This a regional brand produced in Erie, Pa. A very loyal group will swear by them. Cant top the taste.

We like Oscar Mayer all beef 1/4 pounders. We have to order them from our local meat market in 10 pound boxes, and thay are about 34.00 a box, but worth every penny of it.

I think anyone from Michigan is going to vote for Kowalski (natural casing) hot dogs as their favorite!

I guess maybe Thumann’s may not be known that much but they are the best.

Koegel’s out of Michigan are the best.

In upstate NY our favorite is the Zweigle, skinless white dog. Little bit of pork, little more garlic, they pop open on the grill and really are white.

Farmer John’s beef hot dogs are the best.

Stangelville natural casing in Wisconsin. Now that I live in SC, and no longer in WI, I order these for the bar by the case. Everybody loves them. They’ve never had a natural casing hot dog, and I cannot find them here.

If you have food allergies and are not able to eat beef or regular hot dogs, try bison hot dogs. They’re very tasty and cook well on sticks over the campfire.
