I have yet to eat a deep fried, Im sure it's good. When I go to a HOT DOG shop, I expect excellence. I went in one place, they threw it on the grill for a short period, and I might have done thevsame thing holding it in my hand.. Then the girl asks if I want ketchup, and I start telling her. NEVER PUT KETCHUP ON A DOG. Well I never went back. You can make a good dog on a grill but it's got to be brown and maybe a little black. I like em split.
AAt home my preference is my turbo Oven. From cold start, 7 minutes comes out blackned and split. My oven has both radiant and fan heating. Without the radiant feature it does not work. Rollers don't cook them fast enough, and it's either under done, or lousy anyway.
Hey, I can eat dogs steamed at times or boiled, but it hardly the altimeter experience, unless it also has crout. McDonalds learned Wien you keep things setting around, they suck. If you do microwave a dog, put it in a ceramic butter dish with cover. That insures it all heats up to temp. Most places I have seen serving a lot of dogs, have them lined up on the grill of various degrees of done, ready to go. If it's not fresh, don't sell it.
I was just thinking of my old cafeteria. They would grill them pretty decent, then put them over at steamer warmer. I would get one. Looked OK. But I would end up throwing it in their microwave so it was a HOT DOG. It worked out, maybe the best way to reheat a dog, instead of keeping it warm drying out.
