Hotdog vs Hot Dog

Hotdog is now commonly accepted as one word in most dictionaries - do most here prefer to spell it as two words?

    Perhaps because a couple of years ago I was chastised here for spelling it as one word.

    My Flock spell check thinks it should be 2 words. It thinks I misspell jalapeno though.

    Is this seriously a concern for you people?

    I'm in the bbq business and don't really care if you spell it bbq, bar-b-que, barbecue, bar-b-cue, or crap on a plate.

    It's a hot dog (errr....hotdog) for crying out loud.  Just don't call it a frankfurter.  LOL

    Not until I read the thread did I know what it was about.

    I didn't notice the difference in the thread title.

    I use "hot dog" when it's a noun and "hotdog" when it's a verb.

    Let's not go on tangents.

    We may argue agin about ketchup on dogs and mustard on burgers!  Or why you keep smoking when it is killing you.
