How about on the outside of a summer roll?

regarding snags... Wouldn't you agree that if you're having a BBQ with chops and sausages you'd look around for a slice of bread for the sausage and if there were hot dog buns on the table you'd look first for a frankfurter to go on it?

Generally don't call your common variety snag a 'frankfurter.' There are 'footy franks' or cocktail franks, and the stuff you get at fancy continental butchers.

That's why we don't have hot dog rolls at BBQs! But, the yanks have intruduced me to the BBQ'd frankfurter, they're really good!

I would never call a frankfurter a snag. Snag means sausage, which is not bright red and boiled and served in a roll.

Minibring, our summer rolls have coconut on the outside, then choc icing, then nougat with nuts on the inside. Heaven.

Hot dogs are not snags.

Hot dogs are designed for the bun. They are usually encased in a red skin and boiled, not barbequed. You buy them in a different section in the supermarket because they are heavily processed - a sausage is not. Americans may well barbeque them but we would not.

A snag is the good old fashioned sausage in the clear skin that some butcher somewhere actually made, which includes more exotic types like continental, pork, or chicken, that you chuck on the barby, grill to juicy perfection (or incinerate until its black), then offer along with your other meats. You will almost always find sliced white bread and tomato sauce offered with this, and usually grilled onions too.

We are talking apples and oranges here and probably further confusing the poor OP.

If we were really sadistic we'd start a fritz/devon/polony war.

but you should try BBQing a frankfurter, it's pretty tasty!

Don't care for red-skinned hotdog sausages...give me a BBQed snag anyday.

I quite like the good old Summer Roll/Honey Roll/Sesame Bar.etc.
