    a hot dog bun is much better if it's toasted a bit... that helps.. but you are right, and hotdogs are much better grilled then boiled... but ok well

    funny... all this hot dog talk now I want one.... maybe I will for dinner.. and Graham, if you make it back to this side of the pond anytime soon and are near me.. I'll take you out for the best hot dogs in the world ( A local company makes them) but still.. nothing beats our chicken wings... we are world famous for those...in fact most places name them after us here in Buffalo.. if anyone from the boards is ever going to be in the Buffalo NY area or Southern Ontario Canada area I'll take them out for the best Wings!!

    But did you try fish and chips and mushy peas.

    Ah-ha, Mr Brand, we agree on something! Yes, you're dead right - we Brits have never really learned the esteemed art of making pizzas. Now then - this will probably surprise you, but the best pizzas I have ever eaten were in France! Yes, the country that sneers on Italian cuisine as being food for peasants! But the Frogs have realised that there are many thousands of tourists in their wonderful country who do rather like a pizza, and they have, with typical Gallic verve, risen to the occasion.

    It's like bacon - are those tasteless strips of striped coloured cardboard I remember seeing (and leaving) in American supermarkets really bacon? If so, I would hate on a dark night to encounter the animal from which they came. Why is it not possible to buy real bacon in the USA? When I grill bacon, I'm talking about rashers - not slices - at least 1/4" thick, with the rind still on, just a hint of fat under the rind. Not bits of cardboard that catch fire if you're not careful.

    Oh God - two rashers of unsmoked back bacon, grilled to perfection, between slices of crusty farmhouse bread, maybe with a carefully fried egg....heaven on earth.

    Here's a thing, talking about France. France is almost my second home, but in all the time I've spent there over the years, how is it I can never find a decent hen's egg? (or proper bacon). Their eggs are tiny - British eggs can be enormous in comparison, and much, much tastier. Two large British eggs boiled for 3 1/4 mins from the first rising bubbles.....deep yellow yolks....a little twist of sea-salt between each fantastic spoonful....toast made from farmhouse wholemeal spread with unsalted Welsh butter....more heaven on earth.

    PS: Ginger, re: tinned Frankfurters in the USA, I am going back nearly 40 years, so hopefully things have changed.

    I don't think I have ever in my life seen tinned hotdogs for sale in the States, apart from Vienna Sausages (tiny, oddly-spiced hotdogs served as party snacks). The mass market ones that I'm familiar with come in plastic sleeves, eight or ten to a pack.

Yet just down the aisle in the deli section were proper Frankfurters.......

    My other major gripe is the bread rolls used to make hot-dogs both sides of the pond - dreadful soft 'processed' bread that tastes of sod-all. When I make hot-dogs chez Graham I have the decency to use baguettes. So there.

    I like both.. plus onion, sometimes dill pickle... or sometimes Chili and Cheese...but nothing would make a London Hot Dog good hahaha

    I live near a small town in NY called Hamburg NY, and every few years some group protests and tries to get the village to change it's name (usually to veggie burg or one wanted Tofu burg!)I once ran into a group of Vegan protestors picketing the city line...mostly young college age kids.. and they started yelling at me and calling me an animal killer and what not.. then they got mad when I pointed out I am far more humane then they are, because my meals are at least killed before they are eaten.. many of those veggies they are eating raw.. and ALIVE!!! hahah..I'm all for vegetarians, or vegans.. more power to ya.. I couldn’t do it, but when you want to start throwing things at me, and yelling and calling me names.. and I have seen some cases where they try and get physical ( not with me.. I'm 6'5 and over 300 lbs...they may be young but not that stupid) then I draw the line...

    They have to put a dill pickle on their burgers, otherwise the burger would taste of absolutely nothing.

    If you would care to try a genuine hot-dog, go to the main street of Hof, Bavaria, Germany, where you can buy from one of several street vendors a lovely bratwurst or a real Frankfurter lovingly enclosed in a fresh, warm, crusty bread roll. Mustard if you want it, and also ketchup. Never saw sauerkraut on offer, though, which is strange. These hot-dogs blow the US item out of the window.

    Hot Dog - something that feeds the hand that bites it.

    Just to clarify my earlier post on Gherkins/Pickles

    Maccas = McDonald's Family Restaurants, or the Golden Arches

    I often eat hot dogs (and especially bratwurst!) with a kosher dill spear (a quarter of a pickle, sliced lengthwise) put in the bun alongside the hotdog as the condiment. I love 'em that way!

    As an aside on Pickle or Gherkin.

    Macca's in Australia put the rotten things on everything, I am waiting for t to be added to ice cream.

    Here most seem to end up n the rubbish, some restaurants leave them off on NYE and other big nights as they end up being thrown at people and on windows for races.

    Do they do the same where you are.

    I don't mind Thousand Island but don't like Russian.

    Too much Gherkin in Russian.
