For you Dog Snobs, no ketchup Sat, 04/12/08 11:52 PM (permalink)
What we have here is a Nathan's Polska Kielbasa in a Martin's potato roll dressed with French's mustard. No ketchup any where near the food. I really like these sausages.

A diet A&W Root Beer to wash it all down with.



Oh yeah, dog snobs was just a sorry attempt at some light hearted humor.

    Sub some ketchup for yellow stuff and you'd have a fine looking sausage.

    Just kidding; that sausage looks cooked to perfection.

      Proudly I embrace the label "hot dog snob".

      I would sooner put ketchup on a steak from Peter Luger's than desecrate a hot dog with that stuff. Ketchup on a hot dog is an abomination. It just is. In fact, our Creator prohibited the stuff on the Holy Frankfurter. It was one of the Lost Commandments that was originally handed down to Moses.

      I know that some argue "that's how I eat mine, and who are you to tell me otherwise?" Well, if you want to defile a perfect food, I can't stop you. I just wish that you wouldn't do it in public. It's a shameful act that years ago was only committed in the privacy of one's home. I have to admit that my son used to engage in this behavior. I was shocked and had to question my wife regarding the boy's paternity. Nonetheless he stopped this antisocial behavior when he turned 16. Part of it had to do with the maturing process, while the rest of it was because I had threatened to put him up for adoption. My wife and I spent a lot of time and effort administering some tough love in an attempt to turn my son around. I'm glad things turned out ok.

      My daughter (22 and out of the house) never put ketchup on a hot dog. But for some inexplicable reason, she stopped eating meat at the age of 16. But that's another story for another day.

      The topic of ketchup on a hot dog has come up frequently on Roadfood. I am an opinionated person, especially when it comes to hot dogs, beer, religion, and politics. But I have refrained, until recently, from commenting on this subject. Why? you may ask. Because it scares me. I've been reluctant to discuss the issue, but I feel like I can share something personal with my Roadfood family. According to my regular family, I spend more time on these forums listening to you people than them. Anyway, about two years ago I had the most horrible nightmare I've ever had. Fascists took over the country and the first thing they did was take away the right of law abiding citizens to own guns. Then they decreed that hot dogs must be eaten with ketchup. Michael Hoffman was right! He is a wise man who should be taken seriously. As leader of the opposition, I was arrested. The fascists wanted to make an example of me, so they put me on national television and tried to force feed me a hot dog with ketchup on it.

      Just before they were able to pry my mouth open, I woke up in a cold sweat. I was so scared that I jumped in my car and drove to my childhood home. I crawled into bed between my elderly parents and even insisted that my mother go up into the attic and bring down my old teddy bear and security blanket. With the help of a loving family and a good therapist, I have been making progress dealing with my phobia.

      This whole ketchup on a hot dog abomination should have been nipped in the bud. Because it wasn't, we are reaping the consequences. Reprobates have opened trendy hot dog restaurants (in New Jersey of all places!) and introduced all kinds of deviations from the traditional hot dog. In addition to ketchup, we now have such things as cream cheese, peanut butter, broccoli rabe, corn flakes, and eggs being thrown at us. And that's just some of the things. The rest I've blocked out, fearing a relapse and a possible return to the psychiatrist's couch. I shudder to think what might be next. The rumor going around in hot dog circles is that two twenty something guys are looking to open their own place soon. Their goal is to outdo the existing hot dog eateries where the focus is the crap piled on the dog rather than the dog itself. Proposed toppings include raisinets, gummy bears, rice crispies, oatmeal, and sweet tarts.

      Be afraid. Be very afraid.

        I LOVE ketchup on my hot dogs --- especially mixed with mustard and with relish and onions. BOO!

          ROFL....
          I am going to have to try some of the Nathan's sausages on Nathan's Potato Rolls, made under license by H&S/Northeast. I normally buy the white Nathan's rolls, which are food service rolls sold in supermarkets, but that Kielbasa and potato roll sure look good!

            No ketchup (or catsup) here. Great photo and I may be on a hot dog hunt today.

              Yesterday I bought a pack of Windmill hotdogs at my local King's Supermarket. I am looking forward to eating them. I haven't decided how I will cook them yet but I know I won't be putting ketchup on them!

                I put mustard and a bit of ketchup/catsup on a dog if i have chili. Other than that, never use ketchup on my dog. But i can tell ya this, i serve ALOT ALOT ALOT of dogs with ketchup!! and as i have said in the past and even worse, MAYO!!! Bottom line, i could care less what people get on thier hot dog as long as the get the dog!!!!

                        Is there anything better than Sunday at The Masters and yet another arguement about Ketchup on a Hot Dog?
                        How about the Miracle Whip vs Mayo debate?

                        Ketchup on a Hot Dog next to double dipping is by far the most discusting thing in the food world.

                            Your right, the customer is always right. As long as they are plunking down the money, who cares how the top their dog. Keeps everyone happy

                              That "my" should not be a may, pb. What she should do is tie everything from "call" to "number" together by putting quotes around the adjectival phrase, and also change the "and" to "to". Like this: "call to see if I am there".

                                    While I don't put ketchup on dogs or burgers, I can't imagine a problem with someone wanting to do so.

                                    I bet it'll cause a stir if I mention I put it on fried okra, though.

                                    By the way, Shelly, did you ever get your hands on Heinz Hot Relish?

                                      I use a 10/1 on the Sabrett. I use a 8/1 on the hebrews. (I would like to use a bigger size on the hebrews but, other then that i can only find 6/1) and unfortunetly i may have to give up on the grilled because i don't sell enough of them. I eat more than sell and that is NOT good.

                                          Thanks. A 10/1 is the ideal size for a Sabrett. I've found that the casings on an 8/1 (what's sold in some supermarkets) isn't as tight as I'd like. The 10's are just right. A great dirty water dog assuming it's served hot enough, which I'm sure you do.

                                          I prefer grilled Hebrew Nationals to boiled. Too bad they aren't selling. Would you grill the Sabrett's if asked? I also love these dogs grilled. It's the dog served at Papaya King and Gray's.

                                          I'd like to stop by if I ever get a day off other than Sunday.

                                            I had a nightmare once where the PC police came in and made everyone eat only what they themselves enjoyed. I woke up in a cold sweat too!

                                            Fascism is usually explained as government run by corporations so its possible those franks will be skinless chicken "hot dogs" imported from overseas!!!!!

                                            If so, neither ketchup or mustard will do, it'll take liberal doses of Dave's Insanity Sauce to get one down.

                                            Now give me my Usinger's Black Angus natural casing frankfurter with minced onions and a few sport peppers, hold the ketchup, hold the mustard.

                                            A good Polish sausage seems like just about anything could be put on or left off.

                                              No i didn't but i must admit i didn't put that good of an effort into it. I got hooked on the "hot" mango relish and the jalepeno relish and just said the heck with it for now. but i will look again soon.

                                                  I would definetly grill one if you asked. I try to do whatever makes the customer happy. I also grill the Sabrett hot sausage where most people i have seen boil them and i must say they are much tastier grilled. and nice and spicy. Would love for you to stop by if ever you get a chance.

                                                    Proudly I embrace the label "hot dog snob".

                                                    I would sooner put ketchup on a steak from Peter Luger's than desecrate a hot dog with that stuff. Ketchup on a hot dog is an abomination. It just is. In fact, our Creator prohibited the stuff on the Holy Frankfurter. It was one of the Lost Commandments that was originally handed down to Moses.

                                                    I know that some argue "that's how I eat mine, and who are you to tell me otherwise?" Well, if you want to defile a perfect food, I can't stop you. I just wish that you wouldn't do it in public. It's a shameful act that years ago was only committed in the privacy of one's home. I have to admit that my son used to engage in this behavior. I was shocked and had to question my wife regarding the boy's paternity. Nonetheless he stopped this antisocial behavior when he turned 16. Part of it had to do with the maturing process, while the rest of it was because I had threatened to put him up for adoption. My wife and I spent a lot of time and effort administering some tough love in an attempt to turn my son around. I'm glad things turned out ok.

                                                    My daughter (22 and out of the house) never put ketchup on a hot dog. But for some inexplicable reason, she stopped eating meat at the age of 16. But that's another story for another day.

                                                    The topic of ketchup on a hot dog has come up frequently on Roadfood. I am an opinionated person, especially when it comes to hot dogs, beer, religion, and politics. But I have refrained, until recently, from commenting on this subject. Why? you may ask. Because it scares me. I've been reluctant to discuss the issue, but I feel like I can share something personal with my Roadfood family. According to my regular family, I spend more time on these forums listening to you people than them. Anyway, about two years ago I had the most horrible nightmare I've ever had. Fascists took over the country and the first thing they did was take away the right of law abiding citizens to own guns. Then they decreed that hot dogs must be eaten with ketchup. Michael Hoffman was right! He is a wise man who should be taken seriously. As leader of the opposition, I was arrested. The fascists wanted to make an example of me, so they put me on national television and tried to force feed me a hot dog with ketchup on it.

                                                    Just before they were able to pry my mouth open, I woke up in a cold sweat. I was so scared that I jumped in my car and drove to my childhood home. I crawled into bed between my elderly parents and even insisted that my mother go up into the attic and bring down my old teddy bear and security blanket. With the help of a loving family and a good therapist, I have been making progress dealing with my phobia.

                                                    This whole ketchup on a hot dog abomination should have been nipped in the bud. Because it wasn't, we are reaping the consequences. Reprobates have opened trendy hot dog restaurants (in New Jersey of all places!) and introduced all kinds of deviations from the traditional hot dog. In addition to ketchup, we now have such things as cream cheese, peanut butter, broccoli rabe, corn flakes, and eggs being thrown at us. And that's just some of the things. The rest I've blocked out, fearing a relapse and a possible return to the psychiatrist's couch. I shudder to think what might be next. The rumor going around in hot dog circles is that two twenty something guys are looking to open their own place soon. Their goal is to outdo the existing hot dog eateries where the focus is the crap piled on the dog rather than the dog itself. Proposed toppings include raisinets, gummy bears, rice crispies, oatmeal, and sweet tarts.

                                                    Be afraid. Be very afraid.


                                                    Dear John,

                                                    Obviously you must not know too much about hotdogs and have led a very sheltered life, away from the finer dining experiances, such as ketchup on hotdogs...

                                                    I will add whatever I feel like at the time to mine, be it ketchup, mustard, relish, pickles, etc...AND I am not in my teens or younger, far from it...

                                                    Of course, you must be new to Roadfood (so a big hearty welcome to you as a newcomer ), but if you should decide to stick around, hopefully we can help open your mind to new tastes and to broaden your horizens to the finer things in life...ie: ketchup on hot dogs being one the best...

                                                    VERY Sincerely,
                                                    Stan...

                                                    PS: don't worry, you are not a snob, it just must be an illness and illnesses CAN BE CURED, try to start with just one small hotdog with ketchup and work up from there...

                                                          Where did you get that definition, Mother Jones?

                                                          But don't get your natural casings in a knot, the post was not meant to be taken serious

                                                          I was specifically thinking of a dog I wouldn't care to try for free, FUD chicken dogs. I'll joke about ketchup or mustard, but I draw the line at poultry dogs (very high fat too btw) although I enjoy a "gourmet"-i.e. expensive artisan poultry sausage.
