Re:Type of Hot Dogs
Regional(sp) tastes mean a lot. Local tradition, especially in rural areas will dictate what people want and expect.
Around here,a good bun, good chili,, good slaw almost makes the dog an afterthought. They want a handheld meal.
That said, try and offer an upgrade to better dogs. Odds are the more flavorful dog will distract from an awesome chili and slaw.
Them from NJ or NY, or Chicago may disagree, but Southern Hillbillys are stuck in they're ways.
If Bubba can't eat it in four bites, and brag he ate 3 of them, well, then you've killed his experience.
I may be wrong, but that's my perspective.
