I've never quite recovered from the grade school field trip in '58 where we watched the meat cutters in their rubber suits and boots shovel the scraps they had been working and walking in for at least as long as we had been there down a stainless steel chute and being told it was all being ground up to make wieners. Yeah, I'll still eat them, but after one or two I get a little gagged up just looking at them. I'll take a pound of ground round any day over hot dogs.

Seconded. Just knowing a little of how a hot dog is made is enough to make me avoid them altogether.

I guess my answer would be ... steak.

Hot dogs at the ballpark, burgers everywhere else.

I've tried them. Maybe it wasn't a "good" one. I'd rather NOT eat hot dogs, if this is the option.

Lamb burgers are the best, especially when consumed in St. James' Irish Pub in Banff, Alberta along with a bottle of Harps lager. Took my 2 daughters to Banff last weekend to be enraptured by the amazing guitar of Alpha Yaya Diallo in The Club at the Banff Center for Fine Arts. Grand evening, it was.

Oh yeh! I hope that you all have a wonderful happy day tomorrow. We did our thingy on Thursday with fireworks and the whole stramash! It was fun.

Blue cheese stuffed burgers are the best....... but a nice cheddar brat is also good.

I love a good Chicago style dog but it must be an all beef dog in a poppy seed bun along with mustard, two kinds of sweet relish (one must be neon green), onions, tomatoes, a dill spear pickle and celery salt. I pass on the jalapenos peppers, tho. Otherwise, I'll take a bleu burger at The Streetcar grill in KCMO.

Holly looks like she eats a lot of hamburgers.

I say, one of the great joys of life is to celebrate the birthdays of one's family members, especially children. We have two such celebratory events coming up this month and two next month. And then next month there is the grand event of the year in Edmonton, The Folk Music Festival. Can't wait. Five days of jolity. Van Morrison is here this year. We have waited a long time for this.

hot dog with chili, onions, mustard, shred cheese on cheap white bun sporks come in handy 2nd place, kraut and hot mustard

worked at IBP and oscar meyer plants whilst in school, don't bother me, probably cause also helped the family (pig/beef/sheep/corn farmers) make the best pork/beef summer sausage and brauts. The best is always prepared at home.

When in grade school the guvment provided some surplus fish dogs in 60's, anybody remember those?

And Happy BD Autie/dodder!
