Its kinda amazing that the end result of that pile of organic sludge will turn out to be a product most every one loves to eat.

The first one listed looks the least offensive to me, although I like Apple Gate hot dogs.

What do you guys think?
Depends on the brand. My godfather worked at an Oscar Meyer factory while in college. We used to go camping as a family all the time and one time my mom grabbed some OM hot dogs to grill up. He threw them out and offered more money for an "all beef" type Hebrew national or Nathan's. He said what he saw there and what they place in them would turn even the most iron of stomachs.

Guys - no matter what you post - I will keep on eating hot dogs. Nothing better to go with cheap cold beer on a 100F+ day.

Yeah, good hot dogs aren't made from organs or connective tissues, if they were you'd be able to tell just from the texture. I usually get Vienna Beef or Bobak's, or sausage from a butcher. I've done tours of both their factories. They only use meat. At all the butchers I go to you can see them making the sausage behind the counter.

Hot dogs were created at the time people were poor and they find left over carvings of meats and fillers then cook them and squeeze them into casings.

I don't eat them because I much prefer a good sausage especially home made ones.
