Encased meats have been part of Americana since their invention. There is a long history of hot dogs and a lot of disputed “facts” about their origin. Never disputed has been the love Americans have for them. No matter what region of the country or what style you prefer your doggies…hot dogs are one of the most eaten foods in America. We are happy to announce, a contest which has the goal to find out who is the 2016 hot dog vendor of the year.
The hot dog has many connotations: an American classic with a shot of yellow mustard, a “dirty water dog” at an NYC street stand and the savior and bane of parents with picky eaters. Nowadays, it also rivals the hamburger as a canvas for chef-driven experiments in comfort food. And the results are delicious.
Last year’s winner was Zombie Dogz of Toledo, OH. Will they be able to hold on to their title?
Like all of our other contests, this contest will open today and will be run in two stages. For the next two weeks (we will accept emails submitted by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Friday April 22, 2016) we will give our readers to submit their choices via email at: contest
