This thread is for collating all the information we have about hot dogs and where you can buy them.

So far we have covered Chicago and Rotterdam

When we've finished MoSe might make a big graph and a world map with colour "hot dog concentrations" or something on it, he probably won't but that would be totally sweet wouldn't it?

Lurker helpfully gave us this link:

Chicago Hot Dogs (http://www.google.com/local?hl=en&lr=&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=hot+dogs&near=Chicago%2C+IL&btnG=Search&sc=1)

And here is where you get hot dogs in Rotterdam:

http://www.hansworst.nl/site/index.html

Note - NOT OPEN ON WEDNESDAYS!

Ideally we'd also get cgers to take photos of the place, a map to where they are and a review of the place/hotdog. I know that goal's not realistic though.

Technical note on what we are calling Hot Dogs in this thread.

Because of the marvelous diversity in the world of sausages and bread we are opening this thread up to all sausage and bun combinations that are available. This might mean that they aren't technically hot dogs by the strictest definition but hopefully it'll open up a whole world of culinary delights.

I wouldn't call those hot dogs. It's a proper sausage (not a weiner (impossible to say without :lol: )) in a long bun, that's not a hot dog to me.

Hmm. I don't know if there is a technical definition but I'd say that all that was really required was a sausage and a bun. It could be that my definition is too loose.

Anyway that's as close as I could think of, and they are nice.

Back to the world map, and some of you might not think this counts either because it might not technically be hot dog sausages but at the bottom of Wenceslas square in Prague there are some excellent hot dog stands that are open all night (seemingly, at least till about 4am anyway) and they serve beer! :beer:

Hotdogs are very finely ground tubes of pink salty matter boiled in salty water.

Sausages are roughly chopped pork and herb thingies that are sizzled on a griddle until brown.

Funko
17-05-2005, 10:52:33
Oh lets not start this. Can we open this up so that it's no longer just hot dogs and all sausage in bun retailers in the world are allowed which will allow us to explore the full range of beautiful sausage in a bun goodness which we might (possibly incorrectly) call hot dogs just because it makes a much easier shorthand way of stating it.

Funko
17-05-2005, 10:53:59
Or to put it another way, I'm going to call any sausage in a bun a hot dog and anyone who doesn't like that can go and blow Venom. :D

At the farmers market in Henley they sometimes do spicey french sausages in baguettes, they are awesome.
