First, Vienna dog on a bun. The bun then has spicy ( but not too spicy) mango mayo spread on it.
Then, place on the dog a slice of apple wood smoked bacon, then avocado slices,
then sliced cooked sweet yellow and red peppers, then some brown mustard, then your done.

The ingredients had to be readily available. In other words, if you chose very exotic
ingredients, you would not make it out of the initial voting ( by the owners and a few other
insiders).

It was fun. The voting went on for about 20 days. I checked the voting half way through, I was losing.
Then I checked again the day before voting ended. I was ahead.

And yes, I did vote for myself, and you can only vote once ( I knew I should't try to vote for myself
twice, but I wanted to see what would happen if I did ( that was my excuse) and it locked me out of voting twice).
The truth will always set you free!

That sounds like a really interesting combination! If you put one together at home please post a photo.

Years ago I never would've though of mango anything as "readily available".

I will likely not be putting it together at home (although not really difficult, but I did make the mango mayo- one cup mango as pureed as possible, 2 cups mayo, one pureed habenero or other chile.),
but they will at the restaurant, as it will be a menu item for at least three months.
I can take a picture there, at SlawDogs, but I still haven't figured out how to post.
I know, you have directions. I tried once. I'll try again.

With cheap hot dogs it can be easy to get a clunker but last week I bought some house brand buns and dogs at a local convenience store (Kwik Trip/Kwik Star) for an easy weeknight supper.

The natural casing dogs were under $3 and if I'd bought the skinless variety I'd've paid only $1.39 or so. They looked pretty good.

And they grilled up pretty nice over medium heat.

And they were actually pretty decent! I wouldn't substitute them for a great all-beef dog like a Vienna but for the price I'd much rather eat these than comparably-priced name-brand wieners.

Sometimes ya gotta be cheap...I didn't spend much on the beer, either. :wink:

For the 4th of July weekend we picked up a couple packs of hot dogs at WalMart and were pleasantly surprised to find "Nathan's Famous Jumbo Beef Franks". They were 4 in a pack but were huge! As long as their usual "bun length", which is MUCH longer than the bun! They were about 6" long and easily over 1" in diameter! I had a couple (over a couple days), and while I usually enjoy cheese on my dog, I found that the frank all by itself (grilled) on a bun that I sprayed very lightly with "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray and grilled was FANTASTIC!!!
Forget all the toppings! They are delicious all by themselves!
I sure hope they continue to carry these biggies!

I noticed Nathan's on sale around here, too, but only the regular 8/1 size. Given the popularity of the annual contest it would certainly seem like the right time for a promotional push!

I read that blog post as well and was happy to see that these made the list-

They are made at a local meat processor about 12 miles south of me in Bangor, W.A. Bean and Sons, a family owned business established in 1860. They are the last hot dog maker in the state of Maine.
Red dogs are summer in Maine.


That is killer look dog. They are as red as your lobsters?! What makes them so red or is some of that lighting?

Talk about a cheap hot dog. Bought Sugardale at the Woodman's in N. Aurora, IL this past weekend for .99 for a 1 lb pack. Think Sugardale is a local northeast Ohio brand. At least, it's the hot dog that I grew up eating in Akron, OH.

I see Sugardale hot dogs (and bacon) in the store from time to time but no matter how affordable they are I still pick a natural casing wiener.

I usually do to. Tischler's in Plainfield, IL make their own, or we'll buy the Kirkland's All-Beef from Costco. Sugardale is the brand that I grew up with. I googled since I first posted and they are from Massillon, OH. and I grew up just up the road in Akron.
