So I'm doing a bit of hot dog research and I'm intrigued by the red hot dogs of Maine. A few questions for you: Are there any traditional/common toppings that go on these hot dogs? Also, there seems to be a connection between hot dogs and lobster rolls. Are these often sold at the same venues? Do they use the same bun? The bun is buttered and toasted? fyi I'm from Nova Scotia and we have the top cut buns as well. We just don't call them New England buns or lobster buns because a) there is no hot dog culture here, and b) we don't use them for our lobster rolls. Okay, I appreciate any help! Thanks!
