I don't think it's a problem to only "THIS" forum.  Besides if it's on the internet IT'S GOT TO BE TRUE!

    I think the big crisis on the stupid question thread was averted when DJ decided to feed it to his friends...the next day.

            my stupid question:

            How do you guys package your dogs? do you wrap them, styro ect

            I am going to use foil sheets and put them in a paper bag.

              Only problem with bags is the customer instinctively carries from the open end, so if the dog is vertical all of the condiments slough to one end of the dog. So either tell the customer to carry on it's side to prevent a mess, or find a bag the opens the long way.
               
              I am doing foil in a hot dog paper tray. I only bag if they order more than one.

                For what its worth...I've only been doing this for over a week but I decided long ago that I would simply dress their dog in a 12" x 12" wax paper sheet and hand it to them...no one has complained.  It's worked well..

                  another question, how are your condiments kept? are you using iced trays?
                   
                  if so, any particular brands?

                    How on earth are you guys keeping your white coolers clean?  I'm talking the outside....and especially the top.  I've tried a bleach mixture, soft scrub, etc and nothing seems to work....it's not dirt per say....it's just not white.  I'm a stickler for cleanliness and it's bugging me.....

                      Greased Lightning and a stiff scrub brush works for me. I even use a stainless steel wire brush if needed. You have to stay on top of it every few days and it stays nice and clean.

                        Thanks RJT...never heard of Greased Lightening...I'll try and find it. I'm glad I'm not the only one that experiences this...

                          If you have S O S pads down there try them.
                          Best I have found for cleaning plastic of all kinds.

                                  A couple of pics of burner setups. Go with a three burner while you are building you will appreciate it later.

                                    Yes, the 3 burner is the best.
                                    you can hold, steam and boil all at once.
                                    and install self igniters. nothing like setting up and realizing you forgot your burner lighter.

                                          If you have access to the internets you could do a "search" for trailer axles. Tractor supply has them too.

                                            If you are in the midwest Runnings Farm supply carries axels.  You can also look on the internet for Redneck Trailer supply.  They have several locations, I have bought axels from the one in the Denver area before.  They will also custom make them to your specs.

                                              My stupid question regards relish toppings. I have a 6 compartment condiment tray, stainless steel with plastic inserts. Plexiglass cover on the top. No bottom. I have the following in it. Neon relish, chopped onions, sport peppers, jalapenos, tomato slices, and shredded cheese. I've only been out a few times yet and have sat this on the table. Do you guys ice this down? If so, HOW do you ice it down? Is there a bucket/bin contraption out there that it would nestle in? Any input is always appreciated.

                                                I have one of these, it holds ice in the bottom and the little plastic cups slip right in.
                                                 I used to use it for lots of stuff now i just put my limes in it.   In hot weather the ice melts fast so i built myself an insulated box that holds 6th pans. 


                                                Notice the aluminum box on the top of my cart; it has a red cutting board resting on it. That is my new cold box, the outer area is made of stainless steel, the inner is thin aluminum sheets.  In between is some r4 rated pink hard foam insulation 3/4" thick.  The top piece is a daimond plate aluminum piece that is removable so i can access the inside for cleaning/ repairs.

                                                    For those of you that boil your dogs... the pan that actually holds the dogs, do you have that over direct heat or in a double boiler?

                                                      boiling is over direct heat. pan in pan is steaming or holding depending on the setup.

                                                          beats me. almost all my facts come from bens book.
                                                          hot dogs saved my life.
                                                          maybe I should start quoting word for word. but then ben prolly wont like that much.

                                                            I believe you are to simmer the dogs and never boil the dogs.
