If you are boiling you may want to go with a natural casing dog, they last longer in the water.  Skinless dogs are better steamed or on a griddle or charbroiler. 

My opinion, it's always best to have a hot dog that covers the entire bun.  I hate it when taking the first bite of a hot dog and getting nothing but roll and toppings!

IMO, there is Coleslaw and then there's Hot Dog Slaw---Not necessarily the same animal. It's kinda like Chili---there's Eatin' Chili and then there's Hot Dog Chili.
 
To me, Hot Dog Slaw should consist of very finely chopped cabbage, carrots and a hint of fresh onion. The Dressing should be creamy with a splash of Vinegar and whole Celery Seeds. The key is not to make the slaw too moist and runny. The Slaw should sit on top of the Dog and it should be firmly packed and upright.----Kinda like a Breast Implant!
If it's too moist, the juice saturates the bun making it soggy and then it self destructs right in your hands!" />

 Strange how the hotdog became the test subject for so many variations.

 I'll take mine "all the way".......mustard, chili, onions, Texas Pete, and of course.....SLAW !!  (NC style). Like my burger that way too :)

There's a trick to that that's actually kinda weird, but it works. When you chop your cabbage, put it in a colander and sprinkle salt on it. After it sits for about 15 minutes, rinse it with water to get the extra salt off.

Most of the water in the original cabbage will drain off. Why it doesn't get replaced with whatever water you rinse the salt off with is beyond me, but it doesn't.

Salt draws moisture from food.  It's one reason salt was and still is used in some curing and preservation.
Water normally enters vegetation through the roots, some enters through the exterior but it takes longer.  Just a theory

I must have really anticipated this thread, because I had about a dozen slaw dogs in the last week.  Slaw & mustard on a Hebrew National jumbo frank.  Just wish I could get top-split buns.   (KFC coleslaw is perfect for this.)

I agree with the salt in a colander but draining for 30 minutes to an hour would be better. Place the colander in a bowl to collect the drained liquid and you will see what I mean. Very little moisture will be released in 15 minutes. If you only drain for 15 minutes, it would help to dry the cabbage with a paper towel after rinsing.

Very finely chopped slaw. About the consistency of pickle relish. It fits and stays on the dog better.
Ingredients - Cabbage, carrots, a little mayo and vinegar, sugar and celery seed, S & P.
Course chopped slaw hangs all over the place.

I was at Chik-fil-a last week and it occured to me if you drained their colesaw a bit, it would work well as slaw-dog slaw.

Me? I prefer long strand, with just enough mayo to know there's mayo...but never gloppy.  Still, I'd sure like to try the red slaw dogs at Payne's in Scottsboro, Alabama. That's just the kind of hairpin I am.

I made a quick slaw for my hot dog lunch at home today:
finely chopped cabbage
a pinch of sugar
a pinch of salt
a splash of rice vinegar
a spoon of mayo - Duke's of course, for this Southern gal
 
The bun was soft, the mustard deli-style, the dog a Hebrew National, the onions Vidalia, and the chili homemade. Best dog in my town, I betcha!

Yep. You don't want sloppy slaw!.
Just enough mayo to hold it together and just enough vinegar to give it a little tang.

One trick I (and many others) use: use sucralose or aspartame instead of sugar.

Good Idea!. I use Sweet & Low or Splenda in my egg mixture when I make French Toast. You get the sweetness without the burnt sugar taste.

I've never eaten a slaw hot dogs but I really wanted to try it. The way you describe it I am craving to it that now. Can I found a hotdog like that here in Texas? All i eat here are from Meyer hot dogs and Ball Park hot dogs, I want to try something different. Anyway just want to share the latest news about hotdogs. I read recently a news about Meyer hot dogs and Ball Park hot dogs it said that, promoting a product or marketing a brand can be very tough. The legal concerns around it, however, are even tougher to navigate. Oscar Meyer and Ball Park hot dogs' producers today started a fight in the courtroom. The issues at hand may seem minor, however huge amount of money and the way you shop could possibly be impacted by the outcome of the lawsuit. Source for this article:

Welcome to Roadfood but the Weiner Wars are old news and are already being discussed on another thread.
I'm sure there are other hot dog brands being sold in Austin supermarkets. Earl Campbell's comes to mind. Go buy some and some buns and stop by the deli counter for some Coleslaw and have at it!
