Ask James Gandolfini's son, if eating healthy isn't important.
People hopefully, are starting to cut down on JUNK food.
I've never tried Applegate farms dogs, but why the hell not?
I am sure a lot of things helped cause his early demise. Food might have been one of them. We are all going to die eventually. Going through life and not eating a Detroit Coney would be bad. I hope he had a great meal with his Son before he checked out....Russ
My point is, people are beginning to realize the importance of diet, hence the slowdown of hot dog consumption.
"We are all going to die eventually" is really a childish statement at the very least.
It may be childish but it is true. If you eat too much of anything its bad. Not enough exercise is bad. Heck the 55 hours of work in a high stress job is most likely the worst. Got to mix it up. You have to live and eat. I think you playing the recent dead guy card was childish. Personally I think the family unit has continued to break down and people BBQ with the family less. 10 years ago 4th of July was a huge event and 20 years ago almost everyone had a party or picnic. When was the last time you went to a Family Picnic? Let alone a Church Picnic. It has become less important through the years. If the food police had there way Hot Dogs would be banned.
Do you think the decrease of Hot Dog sales has something to do with adding Chicken or Turkey to them creating a mushy, tasteless, tube of mystery meat? The advent of the cheap Hot Dog has not helped either. I have to stop the rant right now and take an aspirin because my chest is getting tight. I hope its just heartburn from the 3 Bacon,Chili and Cheese Dogs I ate earlier. I am coming Elizabeth....Russ
Just responding to an idiotic statement. My dad died at 44 yrs. old in 1984 from a heart attack due to poor health practices.
There is no way to share the amount of loss, his needless early death caused so many innocents.
To say " You got to die eventually" is a selfish, CHILDISH remark.
Are you actually playing the Dead Dad Card now? Whats next? If you are very quiet they say you can actually hear the hardening of the arteries on this site. Why do you even come to this site? Have you seen the front page alone.
#1 Cream pies are the specialty of the house.
#2 The "St. Joseph" is an elegant submarine sandwich: ribbons of good meats, a spritz of oil, and a hail of spice on an airy roll with tender crust.
#3 Keaton's chicken is unlike any other: slightly crisp, slightly caramelized, and shot through with the flavor of the house barbecue sauce. It is so good it made our tipster weep with joy.
#4 A pair of Papaya King dogs, well-dressed
#5 Being in Ohio, I couldn't resist the Buckeye sundae. This is chocolate peanut butter ice cream, hot fudge, a buckeye candy, whipped cream and, instead of nuts and a cherry, you get Reese's Pieces.
# 6 Not a trick photo. This is one Gus Balon cinnamon roll, about the size of a half-loaf of bread. It is presented warm with butter, and it is a meal unto itself.
#7 The day in Memphis of course features plenty of barbecue: pig sandwiches, ribs, bologna, even barbecue spaghetti and barbecue salad. We'll be hitting what many consider to be the best smoke house in town – Cozy Corner. Proprietor Desiree Robinson has long been a friend of Roadfood and said she is eager to greet us. We'll also be checking out Que at the Germantown Commissary and at Central Barbecue. And somewhere in the middle of that, we'll vary the menu with a visit to the Cupboard, which is known for its southern-style vegetables and superb pies.
#8 Speaking of pies, of course we will be eating plenty on Saturday in Arkansas, which connoisseurs consider to be home to some of the nation's finest pies. In addition to eating more fantastic barbecue in Hot Springs – at Stubby's and McClard's – we will be spending time in Little Rock as special guests of the National Cheese Dip Festival and Competition. And we will be dining at the magnificent Doe's Eat Place.
How do you even get by the first page? ...Russ
