Hot Dogs Across America: What's regional to you?

sixelagogo | May 11, 2008 05:29 AM

I just learned about the Rhode Island Weiner this week and I can't believe I've never heard of them before...(even at $3.50/gallon, I sense an emminant road trip.) Anyways, it got me wondering about regional dogs and yer favorite dog houses and their speciaties in yer area.

Please include: Kind of dog (all beef/pork/kosher), how it's prepared (dirtywater/fried/grilled), bun type, must-have toppings, and most famous arbiter of the delicacy.

My Contribution
Essex County , New Jersey (Newark, NJ)
Italian Hot Dogs:
-2 very skinny all beef hot dogs (sabrette) deep fried and stuffed into a focccia-style bread, topped with mustard, then topped with fried potato cubes, onions peppers and ketchup. Dicky Dee's in Newark is probably most famous, but I've heard rumors of others.
