Howdy you all from sunny arizona Since eating bbq 25 years ago or more i discovered great sausage and gave up hot dogs. I don't eat hot dogs unless 
I am forced too because sausage is so much tastier in a bun then a hot dog. What do you say?

They both have their own place in the Sun. There's a time for dogs and a time for sausage---sometimes it's a time for both!

Yep.each has its place..........and some days I like a steak, somedays a burger.  It's the quality of the product that seems to matter more

What you grew up with or where you live could also be a factor. I could easily live the rest of my days without any sausage...gladly.

When I was a child I thought as a child, ate as a child.  Now that I am a man I eat sausage.
 
(Wait a minute, that sounds terribly wrong!)
 
Anyways ... give me kielbassa or Italian Sausage - or even a brat - over "hotdogs" anytime.

I say that you're looking in the wrong places for hot dogs! There are some very high quality and tasty franks that I have access to living in New Jersey. But I love sausage too; especially bratwurst. Hard to say which is better. It's like comparing apples and oranges. And this is coming from someone who loves to eat hot dogs more than anything else.

BBQMaster,
Go up to Schreiners Market on 7th St and Osborn and get some of their Casing Hot Dogs as well as some of their sausages.

Don't know where you live in the VOTS, But a trip to the Pork Shop is worth it from anywhere.
They make all their own sausages (And Dogs). Also Prime Pork Products.

The Queen Creek Olive Mill is just down the road from there.

For a different type of sausage treat,,,,,,but one that will shame any dog or other sausage combo forever, when in SEMA or RI try and find a Linguica sandwhich with sauce.........the Linguica is to die for, loaded with garlic and paprika, and the sauce, usally tomato based but with lots of yummy additions, will set your taste buds free!   Hard to find......but when you do...... it is almost always sensational

It's probably my NYC upbringing that has me preferring dogs to brats.

We have a local company that makes Italian sausage in the same shape as their signature hot dogs (longer and a little thinner than a traditional sausage). Best of both worlds! Though I can't say as if I prefer one over the other, just depends on my mood.

Brats.  Hands down.  Brats with kraut at Miller Park.  Hot dogs are for those "southerners" from Chicago.

I'll throw my two cents in. Some days I crave the Chicago dog with the neon relish and sport peppers, then there's the sausage at Smitty's in Lockheart, and other days it's a drive to Stuffed on 620 for Boudin.

Hot Dogs and sausage is like comparing steak and hamburger. I like hot dogs and sausage, they both have a place in my eating world. I like a good steak but also love a good hamburger. Whats nice about living in the USA is, we have the opportunity to enjoy many choices, you don't have these choices in a lot of countries...............pnwc

For me it's sausage hands down.  For some reason, I'm just not crazy about hot dogs.

Both ,thank you,if the quality is there . Ate somewhere recently that is known for sauce,which lived up to it's reputation . However , the dog was disappointing . And, for me,it's all about the quality of the basic product ..

And as Bob Uecker would say don't forget that Silver Spring chipolte mustard on that  Usinger Brat, with the crisp kraut!!!

According to many studies they will both kill you..that being said I love a good crisp hot dog in a steamed bun with some kraut , but on my last week of meals list would have to be a jersey boardwalk style sausage, pepper and onion sand with a little marinara- what a way to go!

Where I live hot dogs are king, but I really love both. Around here it's hard enough to choose between red or white hots, usually I go for 1 red & 1 white. God bless meat in casings.

One of the very few things I miss about living in western NY is white hots!

Hot dogs are great on the grill; Nathan's are among my favorites. 
Sausages will win almost every time, though, if given a choice.  Brats, italian sausage sweet or hot, or polish sausage/kielbasa are all outstanding.
Tonights supper is actually grilled lamb sausage I picked up earlier at Whole Foods.  Haven't had it before; but they have a really nice selection; looking forward to it.
