    So some market research if you will.

    Who doesn't freakin LOVE hotdogs!
    What makes the perfect hotdog?
    For me its a toasted bun, the snap of the dog casing and some form of sweetness with a bit of a chilli kick in the form of pickled jalepeno's.

    I whipped one up for lunch today with what ever the fridge had to offer and got thinking what makes your perfect dog?
    Be specific, what types of cheese, bun etc ...

    Any good dog places in Australia? - i know SA doesn't have much outside of wendy's and donut king - and they suck :thumbdn:

    The Almost Aerodog
    6" Bun toasted in butter
    House made Chilli Jam
    Dijon Mustard

    7" split pork dog natural casing toasted in butter
    Add a small amount of parmesan
    A line of tomato sauce
    Diced raw onion
    (Sadly no pickled jalepeno's)

    5 mins to cook
    1 min to eat :)

    I used to buy them from a wholesale supplier and go past there everynow and then.
    As far as the supermarket brands .. i think Don's 'skin on' are the best ones.
    Having said that ... if you split them and then fry them in butter - almost anything will taste good ;)

    I made hot dogs the other night, I'm not much of a chilli person so I used some Beerenberg Caramelised Onion. This stuff is amazing, takes hot dogs to the next level.

    One thing a good dog HAS to have is a decent sausage. I don't want to bite into my dog questioning what part of the pig/other animal I'm eating (eg snout, hoof). So I'd like some way of knowing where the meat is sourced.

    And yeah, sausage needs snap ;)

    As for ingredients (obviously these are not all together)
    Chorizo, vienna, frankfurter, weisswurst, chicken, beef
    Shredded cheese
    Cheese sauce
    Diced bacon
    Grilled onion
    Raw onion
    Caramelised onion
    Jalapenos (raw, picked, jam)
    Pickles
    Lots of different mustards to choose from
    Coleslaw

    Will try think of more.

    As for good dog places, see my PM ;) Snag Stand was good here:

    and Harry's Cafe de Wheels is ok.

    Mmm... I do love a good hotdog. In my family, the traditional thing to have on a hotdog was a soft bun, the hot dog, tomato sauce, american mustard and plain salted potato crisps! It's awesome!

    We lived in the states for a few years and I developed a taste for the pretty traditional hot dog with tomato sauce, mustard, onions, diced gherkins and cheese - has to be piled up so much you get half of it all over yourself when you try to eat it.

    But the one thing that I"m super surprised with about this thread is that it's gotten this far without someone mentioning chili dogs!

    Theres a little fast food/deli joint on Grote St, I believe it's called the rock and roll omelette or something ridiculous like that. They do a hotdog loaded with sundried tomato, sliced jalepeno's, raw red onion, cheese and chilli sauce and it is THE BEST. The sweetness from the bun and red onion with the spice of the sauce and the chilli with the huge sundried tomato hit works awesomely. :thumbup:

    That's awesome :thumbup:

    At first I thought it was Strawberry Jam and I was like WDF:confused:

    But after settling down and re-reading I was wrong.

    Here is my latest sandwich caption

    Sourdough roll / Pork, Dijon Mustard, Coleslaw.

    The chilli jam looks great !!

    Don't think I've ever had a hot dog beyond a soggy bun & reconstituted intetines, and not since I was a child.

    im a big fan of all forms of dog

    from the deluxe to the basic

    while we all love the gourmet dog with fancy fillings, there is certianly something to be said about the good old white bun with a skinny frankfurt and tomato sauce combo.

    damn its 9am and my mouth is watering for hotdogs!

    ive been a few times they are nice and filling but quite expensive i have found...

    they also put heaps of stuff on it so it all falls of they need to figure to put the sausage in last to hold in the rest of the ingredients :p
