BTW, Hebrew National is a decent hot dog for what it is, but you should try the natural casing dogs like Boar's Head or Dietz & Watson.
we have red natural casing franks up here too

and in n.h. and mass.

The red cheapo dogs I'm talking about in NC are not natural casing. I'm fairly sure the bright red color is from food coloring.

But aren't all hot dogs sold at public venues (unless otherwise advertised) like ball games, fairs, give aways, fund raisers, etc. the cheap red hot dogs? That is why my family only eats home cooked hot dogs and not very often at that. maybe once every 2 or 3 months.

I rarely see the cheap red hot dogs at these type of venues. They have cheap hot dogs, for sure. But not the red ones.

Well I have to admit I haven't even looked at these kinds of hot dogs away from home since we never buy them but I certainly remember them in public many years ago before I got a little food education.

Or, you could do this--

Soo yummy- chili, cheese & onions....



Sides- homemade fries, chips, or onion rings-
The kids used to request hot dogs in the Summertime-
we grill 'em more often that not, now

Wow, those pictures make me want hot dogs for dinner tonight! Normally, I'd be pretty much indifferent to the idea.

I actually like those cheap red dawgs that leave a red stain on the bun - I can get them in local gas stations for a buck each. Of course, I'm not pretending there is any nutritive value in those cheapo dawgs either.
