View Full Version : best tasting hot dog?

Now that it's BBQ season, what's your favorite?
I've had some FF ones that taste like rubber... I'd be willing to spend a few (but not a lot) extra calories to make them taste decent.

I've been buying Jennie-O Turkey franks.
70 calories a piece.
There's another brand I've been getting too but I can't think of what it is.

try kosher all beef franks... a lil more cals but taste much better.... more pricey than regular dogs though

Yup...I agree with the kosher all beef. I get the low fat or fat free Hebrew Nationals. I am soooo picky about Hot Dogs and they are the only ones I eat. Well, besides Saags atomic hots - but they have a lot of calories!

The only hot dogs I like are Hebrew Nationals (which have good low fat options) and Nathans (I don't know if they have a lowfat dog?)

I, uh, used to eat an entire package of 8 Nathan's, on buns, with mustard in one. day. With Cheetos and Cokes. (Plus other foods). Good lord...

Ohhh! Hebrew Nationals 97% Fat Free dogs. 45 calories each. YUM and not rubbery at all. Go all beef. Even their lowfat ones are like... 90 cals each, I think?

I rarely eat hotdogs, but if I do I will only eat Nathan's All Beef hotdogs. I would say as long as you go all beef, it will be of a higher quality.

This is good to know, I love hot dogs during the summer, and really had not thought about it until I saw this thread. I'll have to try some of the dogs suggested, and then pick my fav from them. Hebrew Nationals 97% Fat Free dogs is what I'll for first when I do my grocery shopping..

I agree, Hebrew National are the best hot dogs. I'll look for the ones lower in fat.

Thanks for the tips. I find that grilled hot dogs are just the best. Brings me right back to being a kid, summer sunburn and wearing peddle pushers. Chips, hot dogs with mustard (didn't have relish and onions until I grew up) and ice cold Coke!! Throw in a popsicle afterwards!!

There is a really good show on PBS that reruns all the time about the history of the "Dog". Did you know that adults prefer mustard and kids prefer ketchup on their "dogs"? I always tease my DH about that. He's nothing but a big kid!:D

Oh yes, Hebrew 97% fat free are just yummy. The grill great too. I like ketchup and mustard and coney sauce sometimes :) I don't eat many hot dogs but I do get in the mood for them sometimes. Generally just put ketchup on them.

Did you know that adults prefer mustard and kids prefer ketchup on their "dogs"? I've always eaten mine with mustard AND catsup--even when I was I child. But whether I was a "grown" up child or a "childish" grownup, I think I'm pretty much the same person. Mixed up. lol :dizzy:
