    Thanks for the posting. But I really find it annoying
    when a taste test posts only their winners, without
    saying what other brands were tested and rejected.
    I mean: Hebrew National, for god sakes.

    pavane,

    Agreed. It was a fairly lopsided report.

    How they decided on only 11 brands is basically a joke.

    Hebrew National should've been way ahead of Oscar!!!

    It was mentioned on the morning news today so I looked it up.

    You're right! They should've listed all contenders!

    Best,

    Andy

    And they were fooled by the "nitrate free/uncured" claim from Niman
    Ranch, Whole Foods, and Wellshire farms and ranked those healthiest
    based on that deceptive claim. And two them they admit tasted bad.

    They all contain celery powder which is very high in nitrites. They
    contain the same amount (sometimes more) of sodium nitrite as any
    other hot dog.

    And they also didn't say the weight of each hot dog which varies. In
    all, this was a lousy, inaccurate comparison of hot dogs.

    And I told them that on their "Comments" section.

    I have to agree with you on this one Bryan, that "hot dogs" are among
    my least favorite grilled meats. I'd much rather have a nice bratwurst
    or ?? But a good hot dog is a passable vehicle for mustard and sweet
    relish on a good bun Maybe some grilled peppers and onions too! :-)

    America's Test Kitchen did the taste test on hot dogs and I got the
    results last week. Nathan's was the top choice and Oscar Meyer was
    pretty much at the bottom. They do show 'Highly recommended' and 'Not
    recommended' as well as 'Recommended with reservations.'

    How many hot dogs do Americans eat each year and where do they eat
    them?

    According to recent survey data obtained by the Council, Americans
    purchase 350 million pounds of hot dogs at retail stores - that's 9
    billion hot dogs! But the actual number of hot dogs consumed by
    Americans is probably much larger. It is difficult to calculate the
    number of hot dogs Americans may eat at sporting events, local picnics
    and carnivals. The Council estimates Americans consume 20 billion hot
    dogs a year - more than twice the retail sales figures. That works out
    to about 70 hot dogs per person each year. Hot dogs are served in 95
    percent of homes in the United States. Fifteen percent of hot dogs are
    purchased from street vendors and 9 percent are purchased at
    ballparks, according to statistics from the Heartland Buffalo Company.

    The test is pretty lame. Boar's head is good along with many others.
    Oscar Meyer even being mentioned is pathetic. Chicago has a bunch of
    manufacturers and the worst would be better than OM. My favorite is
    Daisy and they come 5 to a one pound package. IIRC they're 8 bucks.

    This is in the paper today:

    <http://www.suntimes.com/mobile/5870444-463/hot-dog-makers-around-town.html>
    OK. I went and looked it up. This is a real hot dog.

    The new OM premium beef dogs are pretty good. I quit buying HN when I
    saw them deflate into a mummified pile of ooze after 50 secs of
    nuking. Lotta fat. My new fave, from the mkt, is Coleman Natural hot
    dogs.

    64.16 hot dogs per year per person. But they didn't take into account
    Americans who live overseas, many of whom don't have easy access to
    hot dogs.

    I would say I eat slightly over that amount every year. I know I ate
    a pack of 30 already this year, minus maybe 5 for the SO. And I'm
    buying 10lbs of Vienna Natural Casing dogs next week (8 to the pound).
    So yeah - just a little more than 64.16 a year ;-)

    They had these for half price at the grocer today ($3.50/lb, normally
    $6.99), but I'm holding out for the Viennas on Wednesday. Most of the
    packages were in the .7-.8lb range but I didn't count how many. These
    were the Beef Frankfurters. I think they also have a pork version for
    $.50 less.

    Hot dogs are readily available everywhere... different brands and by
    different names but a frank is a frank is a frank.

    It looks like the restaurant serves them not to far from a Chi-dog.
    I'm sure there's all kinds of local gems out there. Whoever wrote the
