It is as wrong as mustard on a burger.

    I agree, I never heard of putting mustard on a burger until I left the confines of the NYC metro area. Even the local fast food chains didn't.

      Hey, I'm a mayo burger guy all the way! Wanderer, maybe a mayo on a hot dog thread?

      Roossy, it's hard for me to get my mind around you having a job but I hear it's food related. But... if you are doing something you love... it's not really a job!!!

      Hmmm, where is that "kraut on a hot dog thread? Reminds me of a song "I hope someday you'll join us... and the world will be as one". Hmm, who sang that???.

      Joe, I'm back for a while but... be carefull what you wish for! :~)
      Joe

        I left Yonkers and went to Killeen, TX (Fort Hood) in 1966 and that mustard hamburger about killed me. I never trusted a hamburger I bought in the South from that terrible moment on. Even living in the greater Cincinnati area you sometimes get stuck with a mustard burger. HORRIBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                Where's the Ketchup?
                As mentioned earlier, the toppings are just as important as the Hot Dog itself. If you look at the required toppings for a Chicago Dog, you will notice that Ketchup is not listed among them. Ketchup is an ingredient frowned upon by Hot Dog aficionados. Although ketchup remains one of the most popular condiments on Hot Dogs, "properly made" Hot Dogs, like the Chicago Style, usually lack the condiment.

                Those who consider themselves Hot Dog connoisseurs are often vehemently opposed to eating (or even witnessing) Hot Dogs with ketchup; they think the flavor of ketchup overpowers and destroys the taste of the Hot Dog instead of complementing it. Nowhere is this difference in opinion more apparent than in Chicago.

                The inclusion of ketchup on a Chicago Style Hot Dog is a controversial issue. Most adult Chicagoans will shun ketchup. Chicago Hot Dog stands will not, as a rule, put ketchup on a Chicago Dog. Some stands will provide ketchup although you are responsible for defacing your Dog.

                "You know what makes me really sick to my stomach? It's watching you stuff your face with those Hot Dogs! Nobody - I mean nobody puts ketchup on a Hot Dog!". - This is a famous line from the movie Sudden Impact starring Clint Eastwood.

                The National Hot Dog & Sausage Council, in its recommendations for proper Hot Dog Etiquette capitulate only slightly to the public's general regard for ketchup, saying "Don't use ketchup on your hot dog after the age of 18.".

                    The hot dog joint in the town I grew up, didn't even have ketchup the whole time I lived there. They were hard core. It wasn't until fries hit the menu that ketchup found it's way into the restaurant.
                    Although, some people guess that they got the frier so that they could make fries so that they could have an excuse to have ketchup in the restaurant so that the long time hot dog joint's aficianados wouldn't revolt.
                    Incidentally, the place originated as a hot dog stand in 1886. Ketchup has been in the restaurant, because of the fries, for only about the last ten maybe fifteen years or so.

                    Even to this day, it's not uncommone to see the ketchup users look around to see who's looking (or rather to make sure no one is looking) before putting ketchup on their dog!

                      In free-thinking Amsterdam, the hot dog wagons not only offer ketchup for your hot dog, in addition to mustard, but they offer mayonnaise and curry sauce as well.

                                Nice little cart!  The Germans have a very popular snack called the Currywurst.  (Curry on a bratwust.  I know, sounds odd, but it's very tasty.)   Being next to Germany, it's not terribly surprising curry has found it's way over.

                                      I suppose it's a matter of personal preference but a Chicago-Style hot dog comes with dynamite sticks, onions, relish, mustard, pickle slice and tomato wedges, no ketchup. Each to their own but I never put ketchup on a hot dog.

                                        But since you prefer Chi-town dogs, you put everything else on em

                                          Seriously.  If you have 2lbs of other condements on it, what a squirt of ketchup?  It's like adding a match to a bonfire.

                                            2lbs? Like I said, it's a matter of personal preference. I never put ketchup on a hot dog. You probably put ketchup on a good steak.

                                              I suppose it's a matter of personal preference but a Chicago-Style hot dog comes with dynamite sticks, onions, relish, mustard, pickle slice and tomato wedges, no ketchup. Each to their own but I never put ketchup on a hot dog.


                                              But since you prefer Chi-town dogs, you put everything else on em

                                               
                                              Seriously.  If you have 2lbs of other condements on it, what a squirt of ketchup?  It's like adding a match to a bonfire.


                                              Yes...I apply this same logic to all dishes with a lot of ingredients. Yesterday I added chocolate chips to a southwest chopped salad and the day before I put some peanut butter in my Sunday gravy. With all the stuff already in there, what is one more thing gonna do?

                                                  Using your anology, then since it appears ketchup, being tomato based and spiced, is inappropriate for a hotdog.  Thusly, tomato slices are inappropriate for a hotdog.  Pickles being spiced, are inappropriate for a hotdog.  I fully and absolutely agree with you.

                                                    No you missed my point! What I was saying is that you are correct...once something reaches a threshold of ingredients you can just add anything and it won't even be noticed. Cake icing on a nice chicken curry...grilled onions on a nice butterscotch caramel cheesecake. Anything goes!!

                                                          Oh Joe you have strayed from your Italian roots. My grandmother often told us sauce is something you put on ice cream and cake...gravy is what you put over macaroni (pasta? what is that?) or meat.

                                                          Sorry to stray from the important discussion.

                                                            Even this non Italian knows that gravy is what you make on Sunday.  Even if I still can't do it well.
