Hebrew National 97% fat free beef franks. 45 calories each. I don't know how well they grill, but they taste really good on a roll with mustard, pickles and sauerkraut

Hebrew National seems to be the best bet, in terms of natural ingredients of you don't want a veggie dog.

They have a "Reduced fat" and also a "97% fat free".

I third the Hebrew Nationals

I get the reduced fat ones because my family doesn't like the 97% fat free.

What if you don't like beef hotdogs? Any suggestions? I grew up in the Midwest, and never had a beef hot dog until I moved to the Northeast. Just don't like that beefy taste!

Scienders makes some that are 35 calories each... not bad but you can't grill them.

If you do not like beef hot dogs, I personally like the Oscar Meyer turkey hot dogs, myself.

Personally, I prefer chicken sausage to hot dogs. You can find some great flavors--I like Gerhardt's Pesto Turkey Sausage and Chardonnay Chicken Sausage (both are sold by Trader Joe's).

I usually saute some onions and peppers to eat with my sausage. If I'm trying to be particularly low cal, I eat it over polenta instead of on a bun.

Applegate makes delicious ones, both beef and turkey that are organic, grass fed and nitrate free! They only have the meat, water and spices in them. The turkey ones are only 80 calories and while 50 of them are from fat, I love that they're organic, kinda evens things out for me.

Last night on Food Network, I saw a bison/beef hot dog.
I'm not sure where they're available.
They said they were lower in fat and higher in protein.
